Nurses here intend releasing a video showcasing their work, in keeping with the May 12 observance of International Nurses Day.
The Dominica Nurses Association (DNA) says it will be holding a range of activities leading up to the May 12 commemoration, beginning with a church service at the Deliverance Baptist Church on Tuesday.
President of the Dominica Nurses Association Julie Blaize says the occasion provides an opportunity to recognize nursing as an important profession.
“On May 2nd and 3rd, we will visiting the Princess Margaret Hospital to meet and discuss with them. On the official day, there will be radio addresses by the ministry of health,” She disclosed.
The association is also organizing a panel discussion “where the public will be able to come and give their views about nursing and the sector”.
Blaize says the DNA will also use the opportunity to have a tea party for retired nurses.
“Many times we forget our retired nurses, so this year we want to make them feel special,” she said.
A Symposium for nurses at the Public Service Training Center, a nurses appreciation day and an awards ceremony to recognize nurses who gave outstanding performances will bring the curtains down on the activities.
