23 Jamaican Nurses Heading To China For Training
23 nurses, including 5 instructors are scheduled to depart the island to China next Monday, to participate in a 2 month training programme.
According to Health Minister Dr. Christopher Tufton, the aim of the training is to help fill the shortage of specialist nurses in the island’s health sector.
Having done part of their training here, the nurses will receive clinical rotation training in Chinese hospitals.
The nurses will be supervised by Jamaican tutors who will accompany them.
Dr. Tufton explains that the bilateral agreement came to fruition because Jamaica presently lacks adequate training space and the Chinese government graciously offered to make their clinics available.
The Chinese government will take care of costs associated with travel, accommodations and hospital training for the nurses.
Additionally, the nurses will receive their local salaries while being trained in China.
