CHTI’s 12th Graduation Ceremony


On 27th June 2024, the Catholic Health Training Institute (CHTI) celebrated its 12th graduation ceremony marking a significant milestone in the journey of CHTI’s training mandate. The occasion marked the culmination of the graduates’ tireless efforts, steadfast commitment and unwavering perseverance. 42 students graduated with diploma in Nursing and Midwifery (23 nurses and 19 midwives). The event was graced by the State Minister of Health, Dr. Michael Samuel, who lauded CHTI as a significant stakeholder in empowering South Sudan to deliver credible and quality healthcare services to its population. ‘I am pleased these graduands will chapion quality healthcare provision in the healthcare facilities across the country,’ Dr. Michael confirmed.

In a message from the Executive Director, Solidarity with South Sudan, given by the CHTI Acting Principal, Sr. Winfred Njuguna, Fr. Jim Greene congratulated the graduates for their remarkable achievement. Sr. Winny lauded the graduates for their stunning performance. CHTI was the best performing School of Nursing and Midwifery in the 2024 National Examination released by the South Sudan Ministry of Health, on 25th June 2024. During the graduation, four graduates received a certificate of recognition for their best performance in the country’s Nursing and Midwifery exams. These students are: Atoch lagor- Midwifery female Student, Annet Pita, Midwifery Female Student, Tako Mathew, Nursing Male Student and Bacilio Martin, Nursing Male Student. Encouragingly, the four students have a dream of pursing a degree in Nursing and Midwifery if they can manage to get scholarship from any willing donor.

The ceremony culminated with the graduates solemnly reciting the Florence Nightingale Pledge, a sacred vow to uphold the ethical standards and principles of nursing and midwifery, and to serve with compassion and integrity.

The Presiding Priest, Fr. Gabriel Kuol, the Vicar General in his homily centered on the Gospel of the Good Samaritan encouraged the graduates to be like the Good Samaritan in their service delivery, in a country tore apart by tribal divisions. He urged the young professionals to go out and serve as Christ would wish them to, and refuse to be guided by ethnic/tribal affiliations in their discharge of duty and care to the sick and vulnerable.
