The Dunkwa Nursing and Midwifery Training College (DNMTC), located in Dunkwa-on-Offn in the Upper Denkyira East Municipality of the central region has held its 13th Matriculation ceremony.
The ceremony was held on Thursday, 7th December, 2023 at the college premises.
1,453 trainees were matriculated.
Delivering his speech, the principal of DNTMC, Dr. David Ben Sampson, advised trainee students to concentrate on their academic work.
In order to keep their status in the college, he warned the trainee students to take their studies seriously.
Dr. David Ben Sampson urged students to put in a lot of effort to reach their goals and stressed the value of academic success in the nursing profession.
He stated that the nursing job is really hard and necessitates a great degree of expertise.
His warning was that students who performed poorly in class would be dismissed or repeat the course, which could have a negative impact on their future employment.
He advised the trainees to maintain their concentration, abstain from acts of indolence, and arrive at class on time.
As a result, he cautioned them that academic achievement would be the only factor considered for promotion and informed them that pupils who did not meet expectations would be dismissed.
Meanwhile, in addition, Upper Denkyira East Municipality’s director of health, Dr. Daniel Acorlor, counseled nursing students to put saving lives ahead of their own issues.
“I am aware that many of you nursing students are juggling personal problems and obstacles. But I implore you to set them aside and concentrate on your obligation to rescue lives.
