Three history-making sisters begin same nursing degree course

  • 1 Comment

Three sisters are making history by beginning to study adult nursing in the same cohort at a university in East Anglia.

Aneetta, Anjel, and Aleena Shibu Matthew have nursing in their blood. Their mother once studied adult nursing at the same university and now works in the oncology department at Ipswich Hospital.

“This is certainly the first time we have welcomed three sisters into the same cohort of students”

The path of their mother obviously appealed to them when they looked at the future to decide on their career, as all three are following in her footsteps in adult nursing at the University of Suffolk.

They are actually quadruplets. Their other sibling, Aneesha, is studying physiotherapy at the University of East Anglia.

The sisters previously tested out the strength of their convictions and gained experience through working at a pharmacy and at nursing homes.

Speaking about her choice of degree, Aneetta said: “Nursing is a profession that requires a lot of decision making which includes using critical thinking skills to set goals and meet patient’s needs.

“I want to do something in my career that is challenging, interesting and most of all, making a difference in people’s lives on a daily basis,” she said.

“With a degree like nursing, there will be many opportunities for personal and professional development, which I can embark on,” she added.

“We were all pleased that we were able to go to the same university”

Aleena Shibu Matthew

While some students choose a university based on a wish to leave family far behind, this was not the case with the Shibu Matthews.

Anjel said: “I knew my sisters had applied to study at Suffolk, it definitely influenced my decision to go to the same university.”

Aleena agreed, saying: “We were all pleased that we were able to go to the same university.”

Paul Driscoll-Evans, dean of health and sciences at the University of Suffolk, said: “We’re really delighted to welcome Aneetta, Anjel and Aleena to the university, following in their mother’s footsteps.

“This is certainly the first time we have welcomed three sisters into the same cohort of students,” he added.

  • Instead of getting a loan, I got my already programmed blank ATM card to withdraw a maximum of $5,000 daily for 30 days. I am so happy about this because i got mine last week and I have used it to get $45,000. Mr Michael is giving out the card just to help the poor and needy though it is illegal but it is something nice and he is not like other people pretending to have the blank ATM cards. And no one gets caught when using the card. get yours from him i fully recommend him. Don't ever think this is fake its real because i was actually thinking it was fake but giving it a try was the best i found. I fully recommend him to everyone. Just send him an email on ( text him +18508008129.
