‘Separate Domestic, Professional Lives,” Says Educator
By Richard Stephens

MONROVIA, June 16 (LINA) -A Liberian medical practitioner has admonished prospective graduates of a local nursing school to divorce their domestic problems from professional engagements as they enter the nursing profession.

Stephen Caldwell, a Nursing Educator at the Tubman National Institute of Medical Arts (TNIMA), told the students that they should enter the profession with a new mind and new attitude towards their patients and colleagues.

 According to the Liberia News Agency, the health educator made the call at the weekend when he served as keynote speaker at the 11th Capping and Badging program of over 200 nursing students of the Smythe Institute of Management and Technology  in Sinkor .

Caldwell told the students not to shift their aggression on patients and avoid confrontation with them as much as possible, noting that this will create a good nurse-patient rapport.

He also challenged the would-be nurses to always prioritize the safety and dignity of patients, adding that the nursing profession is an area of sacrifice where one must endure the behaviors of “crabby patients.”

He then encouraged the prospective graduates to grow stronger in pursuing their dreams of being nurses, saying that the challenges ahead are enormous.
