Universities in the Cauca Valley, Colombia, launch their Nursing Now group

Earlier this year, the Universidad del Valle, along with the Universidad Pontificia Javeriana, Universidad Santiago de Cali, Universidad Libre, and delegates of the National Nursing Association as well as the Ethical Nursing Court launched their Nursing Now group.

Approximately 120 people attended, including guests such as Dr. Alexander Camacho, Assistant Secretary of the Municipal Health Department, Consuelo Burbano, Academic Vice Dean of the Faculty of Health and Dr. Claudia Patricia Valencia, Director of the Nursing School of the Universidad del Valle, as well as undergraduate and postgraduate students and teachers.

“During the launch event, we planted a tree as a symbol of the growing process that generates hope and that requires care and motivation, much like the nursing profession,” said Claudia Valencia, Professor of Nursing at the Universidad del Valle.

In the afternoon, students from the university presented some innovative ideas relating to direct care, complementary care with holistic guidance and nursing education.
