DESCRIPTIVE STUDY ON HAND WASHING PRACTICES AMONG RESIDENTS OF AN ELDERS’ HOME IN SRI LANKA – IIHS Sri Lanka

Their experience at IIHS:

Looking back for a glimpse from past, studying at IIHS is one of the crucial and successful decisions I have ever made.  I was moulded into a better person with a number of personal attributes and skills which immensely helped me with my life and further studies in Australia. I currently work as an Enrolled Nurse for a Healthcare Agency at various Acute care and Aged Care settings in Adelaide. Moreover, I am currently studying the Bachelors of nursing program at the University of South Australia and my ambition is to thrive in the healthcare pathway to become a doctor. I am privileged and honoured to look back in time and recognise IIHS as the place which laid the foundation to where I am today.

 

What are the advantages of IIHS learning useful in terms of cost of education:

Having a sound knowledge in nursing skills, Anatomy and Physiology before the start of the course allowed me a spare time to attend for part-time work opportunities.
