Nursing

First Nursing Science student conference

SOME 850 Nursing Science students from NMMU, Netcare, Life College of Learning, Lilitha College and health care trainees from Midland College recently attended the first … conference at Missionvale Campus.

The aim of the conference was to unite the new generation nurses and discuss the future of the nursing profession.

Topics included etiquette and professionalism, the generation gap and nursing specialities and possible career paths. 

The conference elicited good debates on career paths and could become a regular feature annually.

“Each of the institutions’ students also prepared one verse of a particular song which they then all sang together during the event, creating the unification of “forces” for change. It was a very emotional but uplifting moment in the conference.
