St Luke’s Nursing College has urged its students to be passionate about their work as their profession demands taking care of people’s lives.
Principal of the college, Maxwell Pangani, made the call on Friday when he presided over the upgrading of third year and the induction of first year students. The event was held at Malosa in Zomba District.
He said the nursing profession is like a calling from God and requires people with the passion and dignity to serve and deliver quality health services irrespective of their status in society.
He, however, cited as a major concern lack of space to accommodate more nursing students at the college. The principal said there are over 500 students at the college, which he said is a challenge.
In her remarks, one of the nursing students Minor Majola said they will stick to their mission of serving people.
“Some people speak negatively about the attitude of some nurses, but we will be committed to serving and according patients with the hospitality they deserve,” said Majola.
