International Day of the Nurse 2022
We’re thrilled to be celebrating the work of our nurses today, on International Day of the Nurse 2022.
We continue to collaborate with NGO, PHASE, which aims to empower isolated communities through health, education and livelihood opportunities to support nursing education and offer our qualified nurses opportunities for work in remote areas.
Our PHASE nursing students were auxiliary nurse midwives, and were able to go on to complete full nursing training with our scholarships. Our newest students at Karnali Academy of Health Sciences were supported by Doctors for Nepal to enter nursing college upon leaving school.
We now have 7 nursing students in the DFN family and 6 fully qualified nurses. Apsara Jirel and Binita Rai, both of whom we fully supported throughout their two years of study, are now working for PHASE in Humla, Karnali. Prahba Devkota, Yuna Shahi, Satya Ukhada and Samina Sunar all graduated in July 2021, and will be working in rural communities.
High-quality health systems need highly skilled and committed nurses and investment in nurse training. We’re so proud to be making a difference through supporting our nursing scholars and their communities.
