On 12th May, in particular, we’re talking about nursing and its role in pandemics. They were especially overworked and exposed during the pandemic, and we appreciate their humanity during that time. Nursing is the backbone of all healthcare systems around the world, and without nursing, there would be no healthcare, demonstrating how vital this subject is to us,” said Dr Nida Hussain, Pro-chancellor, Ziauddin University.

Representing the government of Sindh, Director General Nursing Shabir Hussain Jhatial said that since the country’s founding, Sindh province has had almost 1100 BSN admissions and nearly 600 midwifery admissions. The Covid was at its peak when the Sindh government interpolated 2000 nurses, despite the country’s financial problems. The nurses were given hundreds of job opportunities. The federal government has allocated 8.1 billion rupees for the improvement of nursing and midwifery services. As far as the Sindh government is concerned, nurses and midwifery are being developed and improved, and nurses are being invested in for the good of our country.

Talking about the importance of education, Dr Khairunissa Ajani, Assistant Dean, School of Nursing & Midwifery AKU, said, “education is a building block; if we as nurses don’t have a solid scientific knowledge base of what we’re doing and where we’re going, we won’t be able to stand up for ourselves, stand up for the patient, and make the impact we’re supposed to make, so we must ensure that we have the scientific knowledge about nursing.”
