C.M.E for Nurses, 2016

November 29th 2016

The main purpose behind holding a Continuing Medical Education (CME) is to keep our national nurses and doctors’ professional knowledge and skills up to date. JMT has been conducting Conference for Nurses since 2012 with the similar intention of upgrading their expertise in their field of cardiology.

Continuing Medical Education with Nurses has always been an interactive and a learning experience. All our hard work seemed worthwhile when the nurses showered our presenters with questions and doubts. Not only were the questions raised but the presenters were also informed of the current prevalent practices of the Nepalese Medical Fraternity. Apart from presenting the scheduled topics, our speakers also helped the nurses in ways of improving their daily practices in the hospitals. Such exchange of ideas and a sense of curiosity in them, made this educational session fun and interesting.

This five hour long session witnessed nurses from both within and outside the valley. JMT truly appreciates the efforts taken by two nurses who travelled all the way from Jumla, which is located in the Far Western part of Nepal.

Nurses from within the valley that attended the conference:

  1. Shahid Gangalal National Heart Center(SGNHC)
  2. Kathmandu Medical College
  3. Nepal Medical College
  4. Bir Hospital
  5. Civil Service Hospital
  6. Norvic Hospital

  2. Karnali Academy of Health Science  (Jmula)
