60th Nepal Nursing Day | 2022 : Historically, as well as today, nurses are at the forefront of fighting epidemics and pandemics – providing high quality and respectful treatment and care. They are often the first and sometimes the only health professional that people see and the quality of their initial assessment, care and treatment is vital. Outside, the fires of World War II were raging, people were being killed and injured every day, and Florence Nightingale, a small lamp, was always at the service of the wounded. Let’s talk about nurses who have been highly respected by people all over the world in the last century.
60th Nepal Nursing Day | 2022 Brief
This year, the significance of this day is increased immensely. As the terror of COVID is prevalent, the role of the white coat is considered equal to combatants for national security and public health. The nurse reminds me of the hospital and the main thing is health care and loving care. Nurses’ Day is celebrated in Nepal on the 15th of Magh every year. After the establishment of Bir Hospital in 1947, there were only a handful of compounders and a handful of people trained in India as health assistants. The Nepali history of nursing seems to have started in 2013 BS when some Nepali students including housewives were formally trained as nurses during the Rana regime. This year is the 60th edition of Nursing Day in 2078 BS.
During the Rana period, four Nepali disciples, Bidhavati Kansakar, Radha Devi Malakar, Dharmadevi Kansakar, and Bishnu Devi Rai, have a history of training as health assistants from Allahabad, India. After that, the trend of Nepali women coming to India after 4 years and 9 months long nursing courses has increased. Vidyabati Kansakar (Nepali: विद्याबति कंसकार) (1906 – 31 January 1976) was a pioneer of nursing in Nepal. She was among the first batch of four girls sent abroad to receive nurse training in 1928.
In the beginning, nursing was not seen as a pleasant profession, it was a night duty, it was necessary to work with the sick and wounded. Now the whole dimension of nursing has transformed in Nepal, nurses are taken as a great profession and persona in Nepal. Nurses who did not receive the insurance amount after the COVID infection because of the duty have yet to receive justice. Issues over the minimum wage of nurses working day and night in private hospitals are yet to be settled. Meaningful wishes for this day.
