From Brother Peter Bray, Vice Chancellor

Congratulations and thanks to all the people who were involved in the organization of the Graduation on Thursday and Friday of last week. I thought those two occasions were wonderful celebrations of what we do here at Bethlehem University. Such occasions do not just happen, they require a great deal of work on the part of many people and so I say a special word of thanks to those people who made it happen and acknowledge how proud I was to be part of those two event. I make special mention of the Graduation Committee, under Muna's leadership, which coordinated and arranged so much to make the events happen. Well done to you all and thank you for your efforts.

The Resource Center for students with disabilities, in cooperation with the Palestinian Center for Guidance - Capacity Building Department, coordinated a workshop titled The Skills of Communication and Communication for Persons with Disabilities. The workshop was attended by twelve students with disabilities and was made up of twelve sessions. The sessions were aimed at facilitating communication between the students, raising the students' awareness of communication problems, and helping students show initiative, take individual responsibility, and address the academic and social requirements at the University.

From the Faculty of Nursing and Health Sciences

On Tuesday, 16 May 2017, Sr. Mary Yousef and Ms. Etaf Maqboul participated in a workshop titled New Innovation in Critical Care Nursing Education in Ramallah. The workshop was organized by the Palestinian Health Capacity Project, in partnership with Juzoor for Health and Social Development and in coordination with the Education in Health Department of the Palestinian Ministry of Health and the Accreditation and Quality Assurance Commission. 

Members of the Nursing Faculty who teach the Critical Care Nursing course attended the workshop and shared their best practices in implementation of the Critical Care Nursing curriculum after its standardization in bachelor nursing programs. Ms. Etaf shared with her colleagues the best methods to introduce the new curriculum to the Nursing Faculty’s staff. She also presented Bethlehem University’s experience in the use of Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE), which took place in the Fall 2016 semester, and the lessons learned from this experience to improve the assessment and evaluation of the nursing students taking the Critical Care Nursing course.

During the Spring 2017 semester, second year occupational therapy students learned a new assessment and treatment method for people with severe disabilities. The students had the opportunity to implement what they learned during the semester on Saturday, 20 May, the final day of the course. A one day workshop was hosted by department head Ms. Raghda Ghabbash at the Four Homes of Mercy in Al- Azariya (Bethany) and included many discussions and activities before a final theory exam. The students received certificates, the first of many for professional development. 

Thank you to the Four Homes and Quadar Organization in Bethlehem who funded the training.
