Quality nursing education

  2. 2. 2 Introduction Nursing is a demanding yet rewarding profession that asks a lot of from its workers. Nursing is an incredibly self-aware profession, constantly striving to improve and provide best possible care to the patients. It is imperative that nurses should be provided with the right education and skills to equip them for their roles. A High quality education confers huge benefits for individual and the society. The primary purpose of nursing education is to generate most competent nursing workforce. Nursing education must therefore be driven by decisions and predictions about what future health services could and should be like, and what knowledge and skills nurses will need to meet individual and population needs. These needs are widely recognized. The major factors affecting the health of the population and individual includes various demographic changes (ageing population and higher birth rate); changing patterns of health and disease, rising expectations of the public and health service users; increased access and choice; the shift to delivery of more care in community settings; continuing social inequality; advances in care and treatment and advances in technology for care and communication. Patients rely on compassionate and well educated competent nurses to ensure they receive the care they need. Preparing nurses for this essential role is the top priority. “The curriculum must reflect the needs of patients and be immediately relevant and applicable to the central role of nurses: caring for patients.” QUALITY NURSING EDUCATION -: EVERYONE’S CONCERN STATEMENT PROBLEM “A study to assess the various factors affecting quality nursing education among nurses in selected government organization”
