Ceylinco Consolidated has launched a nurses’ training school at Sapugaskanda where the students get a chance to learn beyond theory.

In addition to being encouraged to flourish in all areas of social work and aesthetic extra-curricular activities, the students also work in a real ward atmosphere with demonstration labs complete with custom-made simulation dummies and experience-based training.

“We insist that the students simulate patient experience themselves, in order to gain a full understanding from the customer’s point of view in order to respect and better understand those seeking nursing care,” said Ms. Anne Fernando, Principal of the Nurses Training School in a press release issued by the school.

The four main components of the curriculum will be taught by former principals of state nursing schools and lecturers from medical institutions.

The students are being trained for employment at Ceylinco’s Hospital for Women and Children, which will the first of its kind in the country. The nurses will be able to converse in two languages and will also undergo special counselling training in order to help mothers and children who come in for medical treatment.
