The Governor further said that Nurses must assure every patient a quality service. “Nursing is not a profession but a mission which requires kind heart and sharp mind.  For a patient, a nurse is no less than a God. Nurses perform their duties at par with the doctors, hence, we have to look at it as a positive career option,” the Governor said.

The Governor appreciated Minister for Health, Shri Vishwajit Rane for his contribution in the field of healthcare. “The facilities introduced such as Bike Ambulance, Ayushman has brought health care at our doorstep”, the Governor said.

Dr. Wilson Fernandes In his keynote address highlighted the journey of nursing education. He iterated that healthcare facilities have prospered since past few years and so, the role of nurses. However, there are still many people who lack essential health care facilities as 28.5% of Indian population is below the poverty line. During instances, sickness is not addressed due to lack of finance. The International Council of Nurses (ICN) believes that good health is a human right, and a nurse is bound to provide primary check-up thereby contributing towards a healthy nation.”
