Wholesale Stitched NFL Jerseys by extension

The need for nurses to specialise in various fields was emphasised by Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences, Dr. Emanuel Cummings, when he spoke at an awards ceremony on Saturday, for nurses who recently completed the Bachelors of Science (BSc) Degree Programme at the University of Guyana.As he addressed the gathering, Dr. Cummings disclosed that in securing for itself the flagship status at the university, the Health Sciences Faculty has over the years developed quite a number of post graduate programmes in medicine.Dr. Emanuel CummingsSince 2005, he disclosed, over nine programmes have been established in medicine and “I want the development of nursing to go hand in hand with the development of medicine because if you have a doctor who is a psychiatrist,Cheap Soccer Jerseys, you will also want a psychiatric nurse.”“If you have a general surgeon you will also want to have nurses specialising in surgical nursing,” Dr Cummings added.Moreover,Authentic NFL Jerseys Cheap, he extended a challenge to the nurses in attendance to eye various specialties in nursing which he said can be kick-started with the BSc programme which commenced in 2002. This programme, he stated, is now well established at the university,Cheap NFL Jerseys, so much so that there is no longer a shortage of lectures.“From time to time you will hear in the press that many of the university lecturers…about 30 per cent,Cheap Soccer Jerseys For Sale, are first degree holders, but all the tutors in the BSc nursing programme have Masters Degree.”“I can tell you that our current Vice Chancellor, who was recently installed, has already told one of our graduates that ‘you need to go and do a PhD in nursing,’” related Dr. Cummings.He disclosed too that there are many nurses who seek to further their studies by venturing into medicine and dentistry. While this is a very ambitious move, the Dean noted that there is also a need for nurses to attempt the third degree (PhD) in nursing.With graduates in this area, he insisted that “we can then further strengthen the nursing programme.”Dr. Cummings pointed to the fact that the nursing profession has evolved over the years with nurses in the past only seeing themselves as registered nurses (RNs). However, with the development of the BSc programme, nurses can move up from the level of RN.However, the Dean was resolute in insisting that there is now the need for the introduction of specialty nursing at the University of Guyana so that “we can have nurses specialise in areas such as mental health.”“Currently, as we work in the School of Medicine we are working on a Master’s Programme in Psychiatry and I think at the same time we need to work on a post graduate programme in mental health nursing, because that is very, very important to deal with a lot of the issues that we do have in our society today,” said Dr. Cummings.Emphasising his conviction that they should never be satisfied, the Dean said that nurses should be motivated by the fact that theirs is a profession that is now much more visible in health care delivery. As such, he underscored the need for them to learn from their colleagues in the Caribbean, particularly those in Jamaica, Trinidad and Barbados.He alluded to a point in time when local nurses would send research work to the Caribbean Health Research Council (CHRC) and papers were accepted and presented, and they were recognised.“That is something that I have said that we need to resuscitate – the nurses and other allied health care programmes which we do in the faculty, we do want to encourage all of them, including nurses, to do research.”He made reference to the fact that a premier function of the university is research which is essential to determine some of the issues that are existing and to gain the “know how” to address these.Health care in the Region has reached a stage where at the level of the CHRC, a research agenda has been established and this is so in Guyana, Dr. Cummings added.  The research agenda,Jerseys NFL Cheap, he noted, too, is not in isolation of what goes on in the Ministry of Health or the Faculty of Health Sciences.“This research agenda has been put together by key players within the Ministry of Health and also the Faculty of Health Sciences, and so it was carefully chosen based on the issues we think are of national interest to health care delivery.”Dr. Cummings it is critical that nurses get on board with this movement and seek to do quality research so that answers can be found for a lot of the issues which exist here in the area of nursing education, thereby making an even more significant contribution and further developing themselves.  This, by extension, could see nurses not only being recognised as important,Adidas NHL Jerseys China, but on par with any other health care professional.
