Nursing Week 2016: Celebrating paediatric nurse educators

For International Nurses Day on May 12, and National Nurses Week on May 9-15, the Centre for Global Child Health celebrated the important role of nurse educators in building sustainable capacity for improved paediatric health in low and middle-income settings. In the spirit of the International Council of Nurses’ theme for 2016, Nurses: A Force for Change: Improving health systems’ resilience, we asked SickKids-Ghana Paediatric Nursing Education Partnership (PNEP) educators how paediatric nurses are a force for change. See their responses below.
