PACIFIC Adventist University in Papuan New Guinea (PNG) will establish its nursing school at Atoifi Hospital once the Seventh Day Adventist Mission approves the proposal.


The plan was agreed on by the two institutions, which are both Seventh Day Adventist owned, some years back when staff of the university visited the hospital.

Atoifi, in Malaita, had been running a nursing school over the past years.

The hospital’s school of nursing principal Humpress Harintong said the plan was for the university to introduce its nursing courses at their school.

“The plan has been there for a while. This year, we are now waiting on the church authority to give us the go-ahead,” Mr Harington said.

Meanwhile, Mr Harington said classes at their nursing school started on Monday.
