A total of 251 midwives and Nurses have graduated from St Lawrence Villa Maria School of Nursing and Midwifery in Kalungu district. Six of them qualified for the award of Diplomas while 245 candidates received certificates during the institution’s 10th graduation ceremony on Thursday. 

Masaka Diocesan Catholic Bishop Serverus Jumba challenged the graduates to strive by all means and resist the temptation of money but focus on the principles of their profession.  

He reiterated the concern by the Minister of Health Dr Jane Ruth Achieng about the poor quality of nurses produced in Uganda, which is exhibited by the lack of professionalism and commitment while performing duties at the places of deployment. 

Jumba asked the graduates to work towards transforming education into tangible results that are witnessed in the quality of services they offer to patients that will seek services from their stations.
