140 new nurses successfully complete studies – ready to start offering their services
140 male and female students have successfully completed their nursing studies at the University of Malta, and are now ready to start offering their services to the community.
University Rector Professor Alfred J. Vella declared in a statement that these new graduates will join the nursing corps at a most opportune moment, as they will be helping in the country’s efforts, among other issues, to mitigate the spread of Covid-19.
It was also stated that Health Minister Chris Fearne recently thanked front liners in the health sector and described the human resource in this sector as the most valuable resource, since all front liners are essential in the country’s efforts to address the coronavirus pandemic.
The University of Malta feels proud to be a major stakeholder in the development of workers in the health sector. The Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences, Dr Roberta Sammut, praised the efforts of students and staff who courageously continued with their commitments despite the fears, challenges and concerns of recent months.
