Our DFN Nurses
We now have 7 fully qualified nurses. Apsara Jirel and Binita Rai, both of whom we fully supported throughout their two years of study, qualified as nurses in June 202 and 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 taking up jobs as nurses back in their rural areas shortly.
