You must be the agents of change for the benefit of all … patients must leave satisfied.”UG Vice Chancellor, Professor Ivelaw GriffithThis was the charge delivered by Advisor to the Public Health Minister, John Adams to the 27 nurses graduating from the University of Guyana’s Bachelor of Science Nursing Programme. Adams was speaking at the annual award ceremony hosted at the Pegasus Hotel on Sunday evening.He told the nurses that as agents of change, they must educate others in order to make a difference within the public health sector. This, he noted, will involve a willingness on their part to continue to build their own capacity as they strive for excellence as health-care professionals.“That step will not only benefit you, but boost the Ministry of Public Health and the country, as a whole … It will bring you on par with your colleagues in the Caribbean since qualifying yourself in the various health fields will certainly aid Guyana in achieving Goal 3 of SDGs [Sustainable Development Goals] – ensuring a healthy life and well-being for all. The acquisition of these skills will surely benefit you and the country, once it is utilised properly,” he is quoted as saying by the DPI.Chief Nursing Officer at the Ministry, Linda Johnson, said the award ceremony speaks volumes for those who have graduated.“It is indeed an undeniable fact that the progress of any health-care system is through the development of nurses via higher education. Globally, nurses are the centre of almost every health-care team and they make an enormous contribution to the health of any nation … as graduates that emerge with a degree in nursing, your experience and added knowledge are valued assets,” Johnson said.The Chief Nursing Officer also charged the nurses to map out and develop new approaches to nursing care, health promotion and disease prevention. She advised them to secure leadership role opportunities within the sector in order to demonstrate the skills and knowledge they have learnt.In his remarks, UG Vice Chancellor, Professor Ivelaw Griffith encouraged the nurses to embrace the values of respect, integrity and excellence and to be exemplars of all three attributes.last_img read more
