Sierra Leone News: 254 Nursing students benefit from disease prevention training

245 Nursing students from various nursing schools across the country have benefited from an intensive training on public health and disease prevention organized by Professors Without Borders.
The training at the Africell American Corner in Freetown brought together students from Njala University (Bo Campus), College of Medicine and Allied Health Sciences (COMACHS), Eastern Polytechnic, Lunsar Nursing school and Ernest Bai Koroma University of Science and Technology nursing schools.
According to the Director and co-Founder of Professors Without Border, Majesks Walker Jnr, the essence of the training was to provide the necessary practical skills on their areas of study.
He said it is their hope that such training, which will be done four times a year, will prepare participants for the job market when they would have graduated.
“We decided to embark on such training because we want to give back to our society. We hope participants will learn and develop their knowledge,” he said.
He stated that they decided to have both local and international facilitators in order to provide the necessary materials needed by participants.
Cornelia Macauley, who lectures at the Faculty of Nursing, COMAHS, described the training as timely as the skills offered and the materials will help majority of the participants who are on the verge of taking their final exam.
She noted that the training should serve as eye opener for other Sierra Leoneans to help in what is needed to improve the health sector in the country.
One of the participants, Aminata Kamara was full of praise for the organizers and urged her colleagues to make good use of the training by putting into practice what they have acquired. AMK/6/8/18
