Manila Central University-College of Nursing (MCU-CON) proudly opened its doors to host the 3rd International Nursing Students Training and Community Immersion Program. This remarkable event united nursing students and faculty members from MCU-CON and welcomed esteemed guests from the Stikes Budi Luhur Cimahi Institute of Health Sciences in Indonesia. Held over two enriching days on August 14 and 16, 2023, the program seamlessly blended knowledge sharing with genuine care.

Here, they put their nursing skills into practice, making a tangible difference in the lives of those they served. This hands-on experience underscored the vital role that nurses play in healthcare, emphasizing their capacity to impact lives both within and beyond the confines of a hospital.
