Recruitment Day for Mental Health Nurses

Nurse practitioner Sarah Beart is celebrating 40 years with the NHS with Sarah Jane Ward director of nursing and quality assurance at West Norfolk CCG

Each year, International Council of Nurses (ICN) prepares and distributes the International Nurses' Day Kit.

Addressing International Nurses Day function at Rashtrapati Bhavan today, Mr Kovind said, a nurse who is helping a patient, in a remote village, in fighting a serious illness is a nation-builder.

Anita Kumari Parida, working as an Auxiliary nurse midwife (ANM) under the Kalimela Community Health Centre (CHC) in Malkangiri district of Odisha, was one among the 35 awardees to have received the prestigious award.

"Nurses play a very important role in the lives of people and their dedication and services are recognised by all".

He further stated that at present, there are 1.7 nurses per 1,000 people in India, and the world average is 2.5 nurses. In the past few years, the number of registered nurses and other health workers has crossed 27 lakh (till March 2017). Acknowledging the strong caring and compassionate attitude of the nursing community, the Health Minister said that we are proud of all the winners and wish that they will be an inspiration for all the nursing personnel in the country and motivate them to provide quality nursing services and standards.


It said the policy was "shameful" and is highlighting the case of a Kenyan nurse who sent two of her children back to Africa because of the charge. "But this number is not sufficient", Ram Nath Kovind said. He said, apart from curative health care there is need of nurses in the country for preventive and promotional health care.

On the occasion, Union Health minister JP Nadda gave away National Florence Nightingales Awards for Nurses.

Almost three quarters of adults think there are too few nurses to provide safe patient care, according to a YouGov poll.

The Governor also expressed his opinion that nurses have a great responsibility in protecting the health of the growing population as well as to contribute towards better healthcare and medical services. The award carries a medal, a certificate, a citation certificate and Rs. 50,000/-in cash to each of the awardees.
