More than 150 nurses and midwives from Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals have received certificates and awards after completing different nursing courses.

Addressing graduates and senior nurses at a local hotel in Harare today, Zimbabwe Consolidated Diamond Company (ZCDC) CEO, Dr Moris Mpofu, who was the guest of honour, said the graduation has come at a time when the nation is faced with an outbreak of cholera.

“It is my fervent hope that the skills you acquired will be employed to combat this outbreak and other diseases,” he said.

Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals Principal Nursing Officer, Dr Lillian Dodzo said the institution is not only going to train specialist nurses for the institution, but for other hospitals as well.

Those who graduated expressed happiness for completing their programmes.

Some of the courses include midwifery, operating theater nursing, renal nursing, oncology and palliative care nursing, nurse anaesthetic and intensive care nursing.
