Sheikh Hasina urged nursing graduates to utilize their acquired knowledge and experiences in serving ailing people across Bangladesh

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said nursing education and training in Bangladesh is set to be upgraded to international standard as the country needs a large number of trained nurses.

She made this remark while addressing the first Graduation Ceremony of Sheikh Fazilatunnesa Mujib Memorial KPJ Specialized Hospital and Nursing College at Kashimpur on Wednesday.

 “Alongside foreign trainings (for nurses), we are also planning to take measures so that the training standard in Bangladesh can be upgraded to an international one,” Sheikh Hasina said adding that the government has already created a scope for overseas training for nurses.

She also said Bangladesh needs nurses in a great amount. Specialized and trained nurses, in particular, will also be needed as the country plans to set up various specialized (healthcare) institutes.

“I think services like nursing is a most respectable profession,” Sheikh Hasina said adding that no other profession can be more respectable than serving an ailing person and standing beside the distressed humanity.

The Prime Minister also urged the nursing graduates to utilize their acquired knowledge and experiences in serving the ailing people across Bangladesh.

Sheikh Fazilatunnesa Mujib Memorial KPJ Specialized Hospital and Nursing College is a humanitarian initiative of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Memorial Trust. The trust built the specialized hospital and nursing college on its land.

Later, Sheikh Hasina inaugurated the nursing college on April 8, 2015.

Since its inception on April 11, 1994 at Bangabandhu House on Dhanmondi-32, Bangabandhu Trust has been conducting various welfare activities.

Sheikh Rehana and Health and Family Welfare Minister Zahid Maleque were also present at the stage.

Vice-Chancellor and Dean of the School of Medicine of Malaysian KPJ Healthcare University College Professor Dato' Lokman Saim also spoke on the occasion as the graduation speaker.
