Korean Government opens a computer lab for nursing students


The Korean government opened a computer lab, equipped with 41 brand new computers, at the Sri Jayewardenepura National Nursing School. The opening ceremony took place on February 13 at the school. Ambassador Arjuna Jongmoon Choi of the Korean Embassy and Dr. Y.D. Nihal Jayathilaka, Secretary of Health attended the event, and celebrated along with a number of nursing school students, faculty members, and 5 visiting Korean professors.

The computer laboratory is part of the Korean government’s development program, implemented by the Inje University. The program aims to assist in the transformation of the education system in Science of Nursing in Sri Lanka. Until now Sri Lanka has only offered a 3-year-diploma program for nursing students, but the course of study is currently in transition to be escalated into a Bachelor’s degree program. In this process, the Inje University is working to develop and upgrade a curriculum to match with a Bachelor’s level and also provide advanced tools and materials for practice classes. In the coming years, they will also offer training courses for emergency nursing care.

Ambassador Choi expressed his wish in his opening remarks that this project will be a cornerstone to meet the needs of student nurses who wish to further advance their skills and knowledge so as to serve the welfare of their community.
