New Abu Dhabi Program Will Enhance Nurses Skills

The Department of Health – Abu Dhabi will launch a new educational programme, entitled, "Next Generation Nurses." The programme is targeted at nursing professionals in the emirate to improve their skills and enhance their capabilities.

Set to commence in June 2021, the first batch of 250 nurses will begin an intensive training four-stage course.

After passing each stage, participating nurses will receive a special badge identifying their classification as per the following order:

  • Qualified nurse
  • Experienced nurse
  • Professional nurse
  • Distinguished nurse

Dr. Rashed Al Suwaidi, Executive Director of Healthcare Workforce Planning at the Department, said, "The programme is an investment in aspiring nurses in Abu Dhabi and aims to boost their clinical and nursing skills, enabling them to play a vital role, as they represent 52 percent of all healthcare professionals working within the emirate.”

“The programme will also provide them with the necessary support to master the art of communication and polish up their nursing skills across all levels, by offering them a supportive environment for professional growth," he added.

The programme is expected to benefit over 15,000 nurses working in the emirate's health sector.
