In early March, seven IUBAT graduates wrote and passed the licensing exam held by the Bangladesh Nursing Council. In the photo they are (L to R) Aakriti Koirala, Samir Chandra Das (Dr. Karen Lund) Tahmina Chowdhury, Kanika Islam, Seeta Ghimire and Sailesh Bhandari (not shown: Ariful Haque Tutul). The graduates can only write the BNC exam after four years of study at IUBAT, which culminate in comprehensive exams and a defence of their research thesis.
Now, as Sailesh writes, “I am waiting for the BNC License number and keeping myself open to opportunities which could bring my nursing knowledge and skills into great use.”
Congratulations to IUBAT’s latest nursing graduates. We welcome you to the nursing profession and look forward to hearing about your future work leading the transformation of health care.
