Thiruvananthapuram: Michelle Wade, Trade Commissioner to South Asia for the Victorian Government, will visit the Cochin campus of Australia’s premier nursing training institute ‘Institute of Health and Nursing Australia (IHNA) on Friday.
Wade is presently Commissioner to South Asia for the Victorian Government and is the State Government of Victoria’s trade facilitation agency and gateway to global economies and communities, a release said.
At the campus, Wade will take part in the graduation ceremony of the first batch of IHNA’s internationally acclaimed Online Courses (these are for getting skilled jobs while waiting to get a permanent job in Australia) for all those who arrive in Australia.
Ernakulam MP, Hibi Eden, will take part in the meeting and also present will be the CEO of IHNA, Bijo Kunnumpurathu, and his team.
Incidentally this is the first ever visit to a nursing education institute by a Trade Commissioner outside of Australia.
IHNA and IHM over the years have been a succour to thousands of nurses who found their way to work as nurses Down Under by undergoing training with these premier institutions and this is the principal reason why Wade decided to come calling to their Kochi campus on August 19 at 12 noon.
