IMPHAL, Jun 22: Altogether 39 ANMs who underwent training at the Female Health Workers’ Training School, Lamphel RD Wing Complex have taken oath today.
The capping, lamp lighting and oath taking ceremony of the said nurses was held today at Gandhi Memorial Hall.
Family Welfare Director Dr K Rajo, Additional Director Dr Dihe Mao, Manipur Nursing Council Registrar Th Nandarani, Trained Nurses’ Association of India (TNAI), Manipur State Branch president N Tangbi Devi and JNIMS Nursing Superintendent Mutum Jibanlata graced the function as chief guest, president and guests of honour respectively.
Speaking at the function, Dr K Rajo appealed to the ANMs who took oath today and the nursing community in the State to serve the society and humanity with dedication.
While stating that there is a growing demand for ANMs in the health care setups of the State, the Director appealed the passed out ANMs not to undermine themselves by believing in the wrong notion that ANMs have very less career options.
He went on to point out that there is a great demand for trained nurses from Manipur in other States of India and abroad as the nurses from the State are well known for their skills and hospitality.
He added that ANMs can further pursue higher nursing degrees like BSC Nursing even during their service tenure and upgrade themselves.
Highlighting the role of nurses, the Director lauded that the nurses in the State Health Department and other institutions had served the people with full dedication despite many being infected and even died owing to the contraction to the virus.
He also called upon the Manipur Nursing Council and other bodies of nurses in the State to take forward the health sectors to attain new heights.
