Keeping in view the shortage of trained nurses and paramedic staff in hospitals, National Vocational & Technical Training Commission (NAVTTC) has taken an initiative to introduce a modern training course for nurses. In this connection, a meeting was held today at NAVTTC Headquarters which was attended by the executive director NAVTTC Zulfiqar Ahmad Cheema, officers of NAVTTC, Vice Chancellor PIMS University Dr. Javed Akram and his team.
NAVTTC will soon introduce a training course for nurses at par with the international standards to cater the shortage of training staff in the hospitals, Zulfiqar Cheema said while addressing the meeting. It was decided in the meeting that a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) will soon be signed between NAVTTC and PIMS University through which young boys and girls, after completing the nursing course under NAVTTC, will be given on-the- job training at PIMS so that they are able to secure jobs both at home and abroad.
Vice Chancellor PIMS Dr. Javed Akram appreciated the initiative of NAVTTC and extended their full cooperation in this regard. Principal Nursing School & College and the concerned authorities were also present in the meeting.
