CFBC Nursing Students Receive New CPR and Intravenous Training Arms

Basseterre, St. Kitts (SKNSOURCE) — The donation of a new Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) training kit and Intravenous (IV) Training Arms will have a substantial positive impact on nursing students at the Division of Health Science Nursing Education at Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College (CFBC). 

Hon. Dr. Terrance Drew, Minister of Health and Prime Minister, facilitated the equipment’s purchase. 

“I came basically to make a presentation of simulation equipment so that our nurses who are in training can learn effectively and through international standards, how do you revive a patient, how do you find a vein, how do you set up a drip system. This type of training is critical if we are to continue to produce quality nurses here as we seek to continue to improve our healthcare delivery,” Dr. Drew stated when presenting the equipment.

The CFBC Division of Health Science and the St. Kitts-Nevis Student Nurses Association teamed up to solicit donations to improve the services offered to students in the Nursing Education Department, according to press secretary Adelcia Connor-Ferlance. Through Ms. Marshalette Smith, who at the time served as the Academic Advisor and is now the Division’s Dean, they made their appeal for assistance. The objective was to obtain modern equipment and secure the required funding to enable efficient training.

On Monday, October 2, 2023, there was a ceremony to hand over equipment. Students in other Division programmes, such as the certificate programmes in Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) and Elderly Care, will also benefit from the donated equipment. Prime Minister Drew’s dedication to elevating the standard of healthcare education and, in turn, enhancing healthcare services in Saint Kitts and Nevis is highlighted by this comprehensive contribution.
