Creating an engaged, supportive alumni network is crucial to an institution’s success. If communication stops once graduates leave an institution, their understanding of the university will become stale. Instead, they should be kept informed so they can remain engaged and keep abreast on the progress of the institution.
For this and many other important reasons, the Tamale Nursing and Midwifery training college has inaugurated their Alumni Association after 46 years of existence. The college, which is undoubtedly one of the best training hubs for quality Nurses and Midwives in the country, over the weekend held a colorful event to mark the inauguration of the association.
Alhaji Mohammed who is the interim Chairman of the association said the the formation and inauguration of the Tamale NMTC Alumni Association is to bring together all past students of the college to work towards the development of the school.
The Guest Speaker for the occasion Dr. Michael Wombeogo who is the Head of Department of Nursing at the University for Development Studies (UDS) charged alumni not to be pressure groups but create an amicable and progressive partnership with the college’s authority and contribute towards the development of the school.
He however call on the Nurses and Midwives to broadened their knowledge by embarking on higher levels of education which is a sure way of acquiring further skills in their chosen career.
The inauguration was under the theme: The Alumni in the year of the Nurse/Midwife: The role of Nurses and Midwives in the structure of the political dispensation of Ghana.
