One laptop was purchased to supplement a problem based learning course at the School of Nursing at St. Joseph’s, which integrated previous neurology, ethics, psychology and sociology courses. The aim of the purchase is to reinforce further knowledge retention, critical thinking and practical application. The terminal can be accessed by all students in the hospital’s computer cafe.
