  1. Dear EU Delegation can you kindly advocate for our student nurses in the Department of Nursing at SALCC. We are being emotionally, mentally and financially oppressed under the administration of the Nursing Department at SALCC. We as majority women(student nurses) have been crying literally on a daily basis. Our local authorities have chosen to voluntarily close their eyes in support of our negative experience. Our future nurses are not shown empathy or demonstrated respect by the administration of the Nursing Department. Hence, we do sincerely ask for your professional intervention. Thank you.

  2. That is my daughter’s worst academic experience. The administration of the department of nursing at SALCC is not concern about students just the money.
