International Nurses Day 2022
Recognising the work of our nursing professionals and students at LSTM
Today, on the International Day of Nurses, the Diploma in Tropial Medicine (DTN) celebrates nursing across the world. The DTN is a post graduate professional short course that aims to equip nurses to further develop their nursing skills and apply to humanitarian and resource poor settings.
As nurses, today, we join the International Council of Nurses to recognise the global contribution of nurses who often work in very challenging circumstances without the support of a well-functioning health system and the resources they need. The nursing profession needs our support and investment to lead the efforts to transform health systems to meet the needs of individuals and communities now and into the future.
Terry Kana Director of Studies DTN
'This course has been phenomenal. The lectures are intriguing, interactive, and interesting in so many ways. The topics being taught are not only thought provoking but also prepare you for a career working in several middle- and low-income countries. The lecturers are fantastic, they are engaging, approachable and so supportive - each one of them has made themselves available to help and encourage us to pursue working in different areas of resource poor settings. Being both a nurse and a midwife, this course has a range of content that will inspire any discipline of nursing and encourage you to pursue a path that may not have been previously within your reach. I cannot recommend this course enough. I am so excited to see the doors that will be opened for me after completing the Diploma in Tropical Nursing and I am looking forward to the next chapter of my nursing career."
