Soon a fresh generation of Barbadian nurses will be qualified to care for their fellow Bajans at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
Minister of this portfolio, John Boyce, addressed participants and members of the 31st gathering of the Caribbean Cardiologist Society at Hilton Barbados – he explained what the first batch of graduands will be fully prepared on entering the workforce as medical professionals for the Intensive Care Unit and Cardiac Suite after training since August last year and May this year.
The Health Minister of Barbados also explained how a further batch of nurses would be certified in approximately nine weeks or less, thus improving on the human resource base of the QEH’s institutional strengthening, by having another 20 nurses ready by September while the course is finalised to be a formal part of the nursing syllabus for the Barbados Community College.
