Operating Theatre Nurse Fola Richardson is in the process of further developing her skills through her enrollment in an Operating Theatre Techniques and Management course. Nurse Juliana Faispe-Christmas, who is assigned to the General and Maternity Wards says that her jubilation at completing her Bachelor’s degree has motivated her to pursue a Master’s in Public Health.
