First batch of Home Nursing course get certified: a project of FMM nuns in San Thome

SUDAR (Socially United for Development and Access to Resources) is a project that was launched a year ago by the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary (FMM nuns), Chennai Province to facilitate a range of developmental activities for the subaltern community, primarily for the women, single mothers and the transgenders.

In order to provide employment opportunities and make them self-reliant, this San Thome based NGO launched a three-month Home Nursing course completely free.

This course is also known as bedside nursing where it focuses on care taking of the geriatric, palliative and patients at the hospitals.

The course was conducted at St. Raphael’s School campus by a facilitator, Ashareyona who is a License Holder for Adult Basic Life Support. The course had 20 students.  For the first two months, theory classes were taken and in the third month, students were sent for one month internship at Venkateshwara hospital, Nandanam.

After completing the course, a practical and theory exam was conducted for the assessment.

On October 6, 2021, the certification programme organised for the students of Home Nursing with Sr. Nirmala, Provincial of this religious body of FMM nuns as chief guest.

One student, Gayathri has secured a job in Venkateshwara Hospital where the students had done the internship.
