NUST Introduces Three-month Nurse Aide Course

The National University of Science and Technology (NUST) has introduced a three-month nurse aide course.

The new course will be managed by NUST’s Department of Nursing and Midwifery Sciences and the Centre of Continuing Education. Part of a statement released by NUST reads:

At the end of 12 weeks, participants will be well equipped with knowledge skills and competencies to feed, bath and groom patients thereby contributing enormously to their sense of normalcy and wellbeing.

The first four weeks or month will be theory, while clinical placements will run for the remaining eight weeks or two months.

… Clinal placements will be at the United Bulawayo Hospitals (UBH) and Mpilo Central Hospital.

The programme fee has been set at US$200 while entry requirements for potential students is a minimum of three Ordinary Level subjects.

The course modules will consist of Basic Concepts in Health Care, First Aid, Home Nursing, Maternal and Child Health and Clinical Placements.

Lessons will take place on Monday and Friday, between 8.30 am to 16.30 at NUST’s Centre for Continuing Education Town Campus located at 55 Jason Moyo and 4th Avenue.

There has reportedly been an increasing number of Zimbabweans seeking to train as nurse aides in the past few months following a high demand for nurse aides overseas, especially in the United Kingdom.

many students will take it to enhance their chances of going to the diaspora, some will drop from their current studies and do it and leave our hopeless country.

It will be colleges and universities for Nurse Aides as the future is only in the diaspora since Zimbabwe has been brought to its knees by Zanu. Holders of masters degrees who are sitted at home with nothing to do have no choice but to join the 3'O'level holders in the first aid class. Other colleges do not require any educational qualification at all so its a chance for everyone to stampede for a ticket to bath grannies and khulus in the UK.

That's a wise step done. So many youths in Zimbabwe right now claim to be lacking enough educational qualifications and most of them start ranging from those 3 O'Levels. Better acquire this qualification now. Tomorrow is a mystery, you'll be paying one of your fellow citizens to help in that way and it'll add some financial costs to your long maintained budget...think fast at a very low pace with constant speed with more positivity of the future😅
