Historic Midwifery Strategic Plan launched

Basseterre, St. Kitts – On 10th April, 2024, the Ministry of Health launched the historic St. Kitts and Nevis Nursing and Midwifery Strategic Plan 2024-2028.

This is part of a greater plan to advance healthcare in the Federation.

The four-year plan will support the activities and plans of the St. Kitts and Nevis Nursing and Midwifery Services Organisation by outlining specific goals which define their work. It will also provide the foundation upon which their activities over the lifespan of the plan are developed.

Speaking from the meeting Wednesday, Principal Nursing Officer (PNO), Dr. Rondalyn Dennis-Bradshaw, indicated that the launch of the plan is a tangible representation of the organisation’s commitment to improving healthcare in the Federation. It also stands out as it is one of the first of its kind in the region.

“It reflects our unwavering resolve to embrace innovation, foster collaboration and uphold the highest standards of professionalism and compassion in our noble profession,” said Dr. Dennis-Bradshaw.

“While being among the pioneers is praiseworthy, the true value of this strategic plan lies in its potential to drive performance excellence and continuous improvement in the nursing and midwifery services organisation.”

The country’s federal minister with responsibility for health, Prime Minister Dr. Terrance Drew, was also present and praised the nurses’ organisation for “…having a strategic plan convinces me that we are serious about enhancing and upgrading the nursing and midwifery profession here in St. Kitts and Nevis.”

“In spite of the challenges, you have achieved a lot. Celebrate your achievements,” he said.
