The country’s health sector has been boosted with the recent graduation of 44 general nursing and basic midwifery students from the Cornwall School of Nursing.
Addressing the graduating ceremony held recently at King’s Seventh Day Adventist Church in Mt. Salem, St. James, Rev. Everton Jackson, Pastor of the Calvary Baptist Church in Montego Bay, urged the graduates to use their newly acquired skills for the benefit of ordinary Jamaicans.
“The certificate that you have received today, the uniform that you will wear, the job that you will hold, should be interpreted as a glorious opportunity to make your contribution to the development of human society,” he stated.
