AMMAN — HRH Princess Muna, president of the Jordanian Nursing Council and patron for nursing and midwifery in the eastern Mediterranean region, on Tuesday attended the inauguration of the second Jordanian nursing forum.

The forum, titled: “Activating laws and policies organising nursing and midwifery”, hosted representatives from healthcare institutions affiliated with the Health Ministry, Royal Medical Services (RMS) and nursing faculties to discuss challenges facing the profession, and explore policies aimed at developing the profession and its personnel.

Princess Muna, in her speech, called for expanding specialised nursing in all healthcare institutions and creating a clear outlook for training policies, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

The princess said that addressing challenges and fulfilling nursing needs in the community would require everyone’s cooperation, and their commitment to realising goals by 2020, which will mark the year of nursing and midwifery.

Health Minister Ghazi Zaben said that the ministry works to enable nurses to move into specialisations by proving their training and educational capabilities, as well as expanding the continuous education programme.

Zaben added that nurses constitute one third of the ministry’s employees and are keen on providing the best possible services.

Assistant Director General of the RMS Brig. Gen. Shawkat Tamimi said that the forum and its dialogue provide an opportunity to translate national policies into action to contribute to the Jordanian nursing sector.

During the conference, Princess Muna signed a pledge to implement all laws and policies related to organising nursing and midwifery, including the outcomes of the national conference.
