Liberia: ‘Nursing Is Not for Money Making’ by Idowu Olabode : July 09, 2019, 12:26:26 PM
An alumna of the Winifred J. Harley College of Health Sciences of the United Methodist University, has called on nurses across the country to take the Nursing profession not as a money-making area but as a field to serve humanity.

Mr. Andrew A. Z. Manbu said the goal and mission of nurses the world over is to serve others and be willing to listen and learn.

According to him, nurses are people who should have empathy for patients seeking medical treatment.



Manbu said if nurses create love and care for patients, the sick will feel at home, thereby leading to them getting well sooner and returning to their homes healthily.

He made the statement over the weekend during the homecoming ceremony of the Winifred J. Harley College of Health Sciences of the United Methodist University in Ganta, Nimba County.

The homecoming, according to the Dean of the college, Mr. G. Clinton Zeantoe, was aimed at bringing together alumnae and the current students in order to move the college ahead.

During the ceremony, the attendees joined an American Missionary to dedicate a modern conference hall. The hall was named in honor of Missionary Suzanne E. Porter, who taught at the college for several years and also trained many of the hospital’s staff.

Dean Zeantoe described Missionary Porter as one of the best missionaries, whose presence helped to improve the lives of Liberians.

He further said the Suzanne E. Porter Hall will be used by the students to conduct most of their activities.

For her part, Missionary Porter expressed thanks to the administration of the hospital and the University for the recognition bestowed on her and the transformation that has taken place at the facilities over the years.

She pledged her continued support toward any project that they will be undertaken to boost the “Methodist dream.”

Missionary Porter told our Nimba Correspondent that the dream of American Missionary Dr. George Harley, in whose honor the hospital and college are named, is still alive.

She gave US$1000 to the administration and students of the College and formerly dedicated the hall, which was named in her honor.
