Isabelle Bonnal has been selected as patron of the students of Monaco’s Nurses’ Training Institute (IFSI) for the class of 2016-2019.
Isabelle Bonnal is well-known as Director of National Education for Youth and Sports. During a ceremony held at the IFSI, in the presence of their director, Monique Le Du, the nurses explained the reasons for this choice of new patron.
For her part, Ms Bonnal enthusiastically accepted the role, saying she was very honoured to have been chosen. She reiterated her esteem for healthcare professionals in general, and nurses in particular.
Saying that “one does not become a nurse by chance, but by vocation”, she applauded the quality of the teaching team at IFSI and the training provided in the Institute. “Along with professionalism,” she concluded, “altruism, exemplarity and dedication are qualities that are expected of you. These are values that will mark the nobility of your commitment.”
