Chinhoyi Provincial Hospital School of Nursing claimed a spot on the map after two of its student nurses made it to the top four after the national final examinations, with one of them clinching a gold medal. 

For the first time, the school clinched a gold medal in the registered general nurse training national examinations, with Tapiwa Nhayitayi having been adjudged the best student nationwide.

Phoebe Mburundu , also from the same school of nursing, came up the 4th best student, and missed the silver medal by a mere 4 marks, and bronze by 3 and a half marks.

Nhayitayi and Mburundu attributed their achievements to hard work and team work and said the results will certainly put the Chinhoyi Hospital School of Nursing on the map.

A senioe tutor at the school, Mr Sylvester Bizurel said it is the first time the school has clinched gold, while his counterpart, Mr Justice Gonese attributed the results to better coordination between the students and staff.

19 students from the school were among those from other institutions across the country who sat for the final examinations and only one failed, drawing down the pass rate.
