Nursing students in the Bahamas get to grips with Nursing Now

Student nurses and the Governor General of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas, Dame Margaret Pindling.

Last week, a group of nursing students attending the University of the Bahamas joined Rosemarie Josey, Nursing Now Board Member, to learn about the Nursing Now campaign and the work of the Nursing Association of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas (NACB).

16 students participated in this event, during which the aims and objectives of the global Nursing Now movement were explained and discussed. “Nursing Now believes in empowering nurses to use their knowledge, skills and expertise in decision making, driving health promotion and leadership,” explained Ms Josey.

Ms Josey took this opportunity to encourage students to join the nurses association and act as advocates of nursing. She encouraged the students to create nursing partnerships and seek health promotion opportunities.

Thanks to Nursing Now and the work of the NACB there are several professional development opportunities for young nurses, as well as opportunities to network with students around the world. Later this year, Nursing Now Bahamas and NACB will host another meeting for nursing students, as well as the wider student population to ensure that the momentum of these discussions grows.
