Head of School of Nursing, Johanna Rhodes, said the whole Nursing team are justifiably proud of the ongoing achievements of their graduates. She gave credit to both staff and students, as well as the continued support from SIT management.

“The reason behind SIT’s sustained success is having very professional staff and lies in their commitment, expertise, and the role modelling of flexibility, resilience and adaptability to their students,” she said.
