The Nursing and Midwifery Council of Ghana (N&MC) at the grand durbar of the Council’s 50th anniversary on November 20 outdoor the first French course book for Nursing and Midwifery trainees and practitioners.
The book was launched by H.E. Ron Strikker, Ambassador, Kingdom of the Netherlands. He was supported by Mr Felix Nyante, Registrar of the Council and some members of the 14th Governing Board.
Launching the course book, H.E. Ron Strikker said that “the ability of our Nurses and Midwives to communicate effectively in French will help healthcare professionals better understand and assess the patient’s needs.
He added that the introduction of French in the curriculum and the French course book for the training of Nurses and Midwives will go a long way in promoting and contributing to the attainment of universal health coverage by 2030.
At a subsidized rate, the book is being sold at Fifteen Ghana Cedis (GHC 15.00). Stakeholders interested can get copies at the Council’s Head Office or call the call centre on 0200862772.
