Mercy Hospital is hosting two groups of students for training.
The first is a group of six SECHNs (state enrolled community health nurse). The students are spending three months at Mercy in the middle of their four year schooling program. During that time they will rotate between the various departments so they can get a holistic idea of the various aspects of nursing. The nursing students came all the way from Freetown to do this practical, proof that Mercy’s reputation is known across the country.
Five Laboratory Technicians from Eastern Polytechnic in Kenema comprise the second group. The lab tech students are at the end of their two year schooling program, and after their one month at Mercy they will sit their final exams for the program. They are excited to be able to have hands-on experience and see what Mercy does both at the hospital and on village outreach.
