Guv Heptulla honours nurses on Nurses day

Imphal, May 16 (UNI) Nurses are treasure of human resource, appropriately skilled for health challenges and are destined to play a greater role in delivering a better, faster and more convenient healthcare service to the country.,said Governor Dr Najma Heptulla.
She stated this while observing International Nurses day at RIMS, Imphal, here today.
She said there are thousands of nurses currently practising in this country and they are a massive resource which the Government intends to safeguard and strengthen. Nurses are also reaching new levels of competency as the demand for more complex nursing care increases she added. There is now an impressive quantum of highly skilled nurse practitioners in the country, she further said.
'' Nurses of Manipur are very popular for their mild mannered behaviour and skill. They are very much in demand in other states and even abroad and the demand is growing,'' she said.
The Governor said the service delivery role of nurse practitioners in primary healthcare has not improved as much as many originally envisaged. There are a number of reasons for this and the Government is making serious efforts to address them, she observed.

Modern nursing and healthcare need another level of nursing expertise than is currently allowed for Nurse Assistants who primarily work in aged care and rehabilitation facilities she said. Many Nurse Assistants have argued that their scope of work and training can be broadened, which would allow them to play a stronger role in nursing care, with supervision from registered nurses, she said.
Vumlunmang Vualnam, Principal Secretary (Health & Family Welfare), Dr. K. Rajo Singh, Director (Health & Family Welfare), Dr. A. Santa, Director, RIMS and others also attended the function. Floral tributes were given to the portrait of Florence Nightingale and nurses honoured by presenting certificates.
The function was organised by Trained Nurses Association of India, Manipur Branch was celebrated in memory of the pioneer and founder of Modern Nursing, Florence Nightingale . The theme of this year’s International Nurses Day is ‘Nurses: A voice to lead – Health for All’.
