Student Nurses dressed in their nursing attire strode past their parents and well-wishers in a solemn yet meaningful ceremony to become mantle bearers of care and compassion. The chief guest Dr (Prof) Fatima DSilva, Dean Nitte Usha Institute of Nursing Sciences graced the occasion and prodded the Student Nurses to pursue higher knowledge and compassion. The knowledge gained and compassion with a smile will take you many miles, giving a sense of assurance and belonging to those who seek care in times of need. She gave her own testimony of saving her mother through the knowledge she gained and the practical exposure she got during her student days. The days of ignorance have to be passed and the days of quest should be your future.

Nurses take oath at Father Muller School and College of NursingDirector of the Father Muller Charitable Institutions, Rev. Fr Richard Aloysius Coelho who presided over the ceremony essayed the feelings of patients who compared nurses to angels of mercy at their weakest moments. The nurse brings healing and care through his or her actions, but brings joy by going the extra mile in service. Jesus said “if they ask you your cloak, though should give”, meaning to sacrifice a bit for the patients will bring you even closer to God. The Gospel reading of the day reverberates that ‘darkness has ended and the light has come, yes the Advent season is upon us and thus we should be the brightness to our patients. Compassionate care is what u are called for, and the work done with empathy, service and love will shine bright. Thus the lamp in your hearts and minds lit today should shine until the last breath you breathe. He concluded by asking the Nurses to be like the Good Samaritan.

The importance of the lamp lighting and its significance for the Student Nurses was read by Sr Devasia, Chief Nursing Officer and Principal of the Father Muller Nursing College Thumbay who also asked the nurses to focus on caring.

Rev. Sr Jacintha D’Souza, Principal of Father Muller School and College of Nursing administered the Oath. The Student Nurses with joy sang the song of the Lit Candle.
