It is with great pleasure and pride that I pen the following message in conjunction with the launching of a new chapter in the illustrious journey of Continental Institute of Nursing. Since its advent, nursing, as a profession, has always been regarded as noble in not only its mission and practices but also in instilling in its practitioners a great sense of duty and commitment to their fellow human beings. At CIN, we have amply demonstrated our readiness and willingness to bring out the best in the students who will be passed through our gates. No endeavor in the field of education is complete if due attention is not paid to the quality of our lecturers and instructors. In this regard it must be acknowledged that CIN playing an immense role and efforts to attract and retain the best possible brains to help the college reach new heights. One of our efforts to achieve world class standards in nursing education and nursing care will no longer remain an elusive dream. It is noteworthy that efforts to integrate and incorporate the latest trends in education and research in the field is not only of ground breaking significance, but is also laudable because it holds immense potential for the future. In fact it is quite true to say that research together with the integration of theory and technology will be the trend in the future. Let us therefore pool our resources together to realize this goal. Since I have been a nurse, a nursing educator and a nursing administrator myself, I am keenly aware of the crucial role nursing plays in healthcare and national wellbeing. Last but not the least, it is my humble prayer and fervent hope that CIN will continue to climb the ladder of success in the years to come.
