Yvonne Matheka

I am very fine, happy with nursing, enjoying every bit of it. I got a new placement two weeks ago, to a surgical ward. Nursing is not an easy job, but i think its the best. I got a very good orientation to the ward on the first day because i was very new then. I met patients with surgeries, though not all of them. At first it was abit challenging because i hadnt seen a patient in coma or with sutures.

I joined HMGC in March 2006. I was so glad finally to be able to study again. The Girls Centre offered us 4 main courses that is dressmaking, basic accounts, computer studies, catering. This gave me an opportunity to choose a course which suits me, one that I had dreamt of. But being so ambitious I decided to study all of them and worked hard to pursue excellence. Our teachers were very good and kind to us an they kept on encouraging us to work hard for a better future. I listened and I made sure that after every exam I was the best among all.
