Lungten, a GNM graduates, said, “I am proud to have completed my diploma course successfully. The credit goes to the wise teachers and friends.” He added that he pledged to serve the sick people with love and dedication to “prevent, restore and treat diseases”.
A batch of 25 basic health workers (BHW), who underwent a two-year qualification upgrading course to become HAs, are also proud that they have been able to upgrade their skills after working as BHWs for many years.
The second year students of B.Sc. Nursing conversion and B.Sc. in Public Health had also made the institute and themselves proud with motivating results. The topper from the GNM first year, Samdrup Dorji, said, “I was able to top the class because of the help of my parents, blessings of great teachers and wise friends. I am very proud of my result because I have won half scholarships twice. Now I will try to win a full government scholarship by scoring 80 percent or more in the forthcoming exams.”
Samdrup’s exam results have inspired a number of self-financed students as well as government scholarship students to do better.
The performance of students of all levels this semester has left a special memory in the institute’s recent history.
