Malawi Government Beefs Up CUNIMA Nursing Skills Lab with Equipment
Malawi Government through the Reproductive Health Directorate that is under the Ministry of Health has donated skills lab equipment to the Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery at the Catholic University of Malawi to reduce the student -equipment ratio in the skills laboratory.
The donation follows a needs assessment that the directorate had in institutions of higher learning that offer Nursing and Midwifery courses in the country.
Dean of the Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery at Catholic University Susan Sundu has applauded the Malawi Government for the donation saying it has beefed up skills lab equipment that the University has.
Sundu added that the donation is to help lecturers in the demonstration to students when they have practical lessons in the Skills lab.
“As a young Faculty we lack a lot of skills equipment, as such, this donation is a relief, we planned to buy that equipment but now the money is to be used for something else” Said Sundu.
The Directorate has donated three Pelvic Models that are used for Midwifery demonstration when students are in the skills lab.
Three Pelvic Models have been donated to Nursing and Midwifery Institution of higher learning in the country with the help of the Department of International Development (DFID) and The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).
Established in 2015, the Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery has over one hundred and fifty students enrolled at the Catholic University of Malawi. The Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery released the first cohort of its graduates in 2019.
The faculty is among the seven faculties at the Catholic University of Malawi.
