Forty-six (46) ni-Vanuatu students to undergo nursing studies at the Solomon Islands National University are expected to arrive later this week after they were unable to board the plane today.
Sources close to SINU confirmed to SBMOnline tonight that the students were expected today but due to internal ticketing issues in Vila they were unable to board the flight to Honiara. They instead will be flying in later this week on Tuesday or Sunday.
However, the nine students who arrived today are ni-Vanuatu students who will be undertaking their nursing studies at Atoifi Nursing School and Pacific Adventist University, PNG.
So far of the 47 ni-Vanuatu students that will undertake studies at SINU Nursing School this year, only one had arrived last week.
With the rest of the students arriving later this week, the university is also working on a time table for them separately as SINU is now in its seventh week of studies.
This is the first time in the history of SINU (not SICHE) that it is recruiting foreign studies to study here.
The nursing programme is rated as one of the most popular programmes at the university and that is further elevated with many of its graduates now working in regional countries, majority in Vanuatu.
