FMIC’s Nursing Services is central to supporting the realization of our mission to promote optimal health and wellness for the people of Afghanistan. Our staff is committed to employing the most up-to-date knowledge and practices of our field, in an effort to maintain the highest professional standards.
FMIC’s team of over 250 national Afghan nurses and midwives provide support to the hospital’s 169-bed facility, which includes the intensive care units for neonates, pediatrics & adults; the operating rooms & Cardiac Cath Lab; and the emergency, in-patient & out-patient departments. Our nurses and midwives are certified in Basic Life Support (BLS), Paediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS), Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS), intravenous (IV) cannulation, medication, and many others.
FMIC’s Nursing Services began in 2005, with a team of ten Afghan nurses and one French nurse, led by a Nursing Administrator from Aga Khan University Hospital in Karachi, Pakistan. This international team established a strong foundation for the nursing division by sharing and building on their diverse knowledge, for example by setting up FMIC facilities according to French standards and AKUH processes.
Further, at a time when there was no standard for nursing education in Afghanistan, French missions to FMIC provided Afghan nurses with hands-on clinical training in international standards of nursing practice. The high demand for this training led to the formal establishment of FMIC’s Nursing Education Services and Infection Control Programme in December 2006.
Nursing Education Services
FMIC believes that the delivery of quality care begins with a dedicated and able caretaker. This is why Nursing Education Services is an integral part of our nursing division. NES supports our nursing staff’s’ continuous professional development by providing comprehensive orientation, in-house specialized training, and in-service education opportunities. Training is offered both on-site and through our eLearning program. Topics covered range from general and basic nursing knowledge and skills to advanced and critical care nursing. A number of our nurses have got the chance to pursue their bachelor’s and master’s degrees in nursing.
