Sri Lankan Nurses Graduate with OUM DegreesWebmaster
OUM’s partner in Sri Lanka, the International Institute of Health Sciences (IIHS), held its Graduation Ceremony Twenty 22 on Monday 21 November. Vice President (Academic), Prof Datuk Dr Mohd Tajudin Md Ninggal, took part in the happy occasion, delivering a congratulatory speech and presenting scrolls to graduates who had taken OUM’s programmes.
“OUM’s collaboration with IIHS started 12 years ago, in 2010. It has led to 1,250 nurses from Sri Lanka graduating with bachelor’s and master’s degrees in nursing. Their presence at our convocations in Kuala Lumpur has always been very welcome.
“From what I hear, many of them have secured employment as registered nurses in the United Kingdom, Australia and Europe. Their success is a testament to the success of our collaboration,” he said.
IIHS is one of Sri Lanka’s leading healthcare training institutes, training nurses for international markets. The OUM-IIHS partnership involves the delivery of OUM’s nursing programmes to nurses registered at IIHS.
Addressing the graduates, Datuk Tajudin advised, “With the qualification you have earned, you can now put into practice what you have learned to improve not only your life but also the lives of the people around you and the organisations you serve.
“Give your best wherever you go, whatever you do. As the Brazilian novelist Paulo Coelho said, ‘When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too’.”
