On Monday 16 March 2015, students from Johnass International College of Health Sciences arrived at St. Charles Lwanga Buikwe Hospital for induction into their first Practum Placement. Led by the Academic Registrar, Mrs Sarah Nakanwagi, the Johnass Staff included Sr. Nakkazi Safina, a Clinical Instructor and the ICT Technician. The students were jovial, in high spirits and were ready to begin the next stage of their academic journey towards becoming nurses and midwives.

The team was received by Sr. Nsamba Rhona, the Officer-in-Charge at St. Charles Lwanga Buikwe Hospital who informed the students that they were welcome and that the doctors and nursing staff at the hospital are willing to impart to them the skills to make them fit to serve the community in the chosen profession. She urged the students to follow the initial training that was given to them at induction at the college and informed the trainees that the culture at the hospital is one of respect and very accommodating. She urged them to feel free to ask questions during the training period as the doctors and nursing staff will be available to answer all questions.

Speaking to the trainees, Sr. Rhona reminded them that the profession is unique and comprised of steady and confident individuals. The job of the nurse is not to earn a salary but take a client as valuable. She added that students should know their scope, attend to patients with empathy and grow professionally. She reminded students to protect their papers though ethical discretion.

She then led the team on a tour of the hospital departments concluding with the hospital timetable which included weekly discussions on Wednesdays to discuss any topics including those suggested or requested by students. Sr. Rhona informed the Johnass ICHS that mass is celebrated every Tuesday from 4:30pm by staff at the hospital and the patients.

Dressed in full professional attire, the students were very smart and ready to learn with some saying they could not wait to begin interacting and caring for the sick. We wish the students in Certificate of Nursing and Certificate in Midwifery a successful Practicum and eventual success in the PTS examinations that will follow.
