Nearly 200 nurses graduated at the Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals on Friday. Health and Child Care Minister, Obadiah Moyo, urged the graduands to keep pace with new technological developments to remain relevant in their profession.
In a speech read on his behalf by Health Services Board (HSB) vice-chairperson Auxillia Chideme-Munodawafa, Minister Moyo said:
If you remain static, be careful your patients will be ahead of you and it becomes very difficult for you to execute your duties.
Today’s patients are techno-savvy to the extent that before they go to a health institution, they would have already googled their condition and possible treatment.
Among the graduands, 31 were midwives while 48 other nurses who were pursuing different post-basic courses and 56 specializing in different areas of care graduating.
