An appeal is being made for Barbados to establish a nursing school.
Minister of Health Jeffrey Bostic made the call yesterday during the launch of the new auxiliary nursing programme at the Barbados Community College (BCC).
“As we launch this nursing programme, I strongly believe that nursing is too important and too huge an undertaking for it to be just under some other department in this institution. I would love to see the day when there is a Barbados Community College Nursing School and then we could really do some good work in this country. [We] would also be able to facilitate some of our sister territories that do not have the capacity to train. I hope this is the direction the college goes.”
His statement was followed by loud applause and cheers. (SB)
