DIMAPUR — Expounding that the progress of any society largely depends on good healthcare facilities, the deputy commissioner of Dimapur, Dr. Tinojongshi Chang, on Friday called upon the nursing fraternity to equip themselves with the latest knowledge and reach out those unreached areas of the state.

Speaking at the International Nurses Day programme, organised by the Trained Nurses’ Association of India (TNAI), Dimapur Unit, at the Medical Fellowship hall of the District Hospital, Dimapur, Dr. Chang stated that for a society to progress, it needs good healthcare facilities. To achieve the goal, he called upon the nurses to work together and reach out to those unreached areas.

According to him, the basic principles for human to progress and achieve economic development depended on good healthcare facilities as individual health is interlinked with progress of economic status.

The DC stated that the International Nurses Day is celebrated to honour and commemorate the profound impact made by all the nurses for their dedications, professionalisms and selflessness. He added that the day is observed to create awareness among the communities about the critical role played by nurses in shaping the future.

Dr. Chang mentioned that in Nagaland, nurses, trained medical practitioners and government employees have lots to do as there are many remote areas, where healthcare facilities are yet to be reached.

While reminding that service to humanity is a service to god, he encouraged the nurses to continue with their noble profession without expecting anything in return stating that there is a god who will appreciate and bless them in the days to come.

The theme speaker of the event, TNAI general secretary of Dimapur unit, Vive S Chishi, said that International Nurses Day is observed to recognise the nurses’ invaluable contributions.

Stating that the hard work of nurses often goes unnoticed despite working for 365 days in a year, she stated that the day is observed to recognise the service they render to every patient in a community and to collaborate with nurses all over the world.

Chishi stated that this year’s theme highlighted on the economic power of care and the need of nursing to be seen as an investment. She mentioned that investing in nursing will help to reshape the economy and benefit the society.

She pointed out that investing in nursing education would benefit the society by having a stronger nursing staff with better knowledge and better outcome to create a healthy society. She was of the view that strengthening the nursing fraternity with economic power would result in strengthening the community as a whole.

The welcome address was delivered by ANM of CHC Medziphema, Watimenla, and concluded with a vote of thank delivered by principal of SON DHD, Bendangnaro.
