59 students graduated from the FEMAP School of Nursing. The students participated in the ceremony of the “Pass of the Light” and received their nurse caps symbolizing the accruing of knowledge and process needed to truly serve as a nurse as well as the nursing emblem pin signifying the student’s passage to clinical practice.
More than 400 family and friends attended the graduation ceremony.
The majority of those seeking a nursing education at FEMAP are poor, seeking scholarships for the $42 per month tuition. The Nursing School provides opportunities for the poorest people to study and become healthcare professionals.
Graduates are guaran-teed good paying jobs upon graduation while serving a desperately underserved region.
