Update on Nursing Students

AIL recently received an update from 9 graduates of its nurse/midwife program, including where they are working.

One is working in a hospital laboratory, examining and testing 220 – 270 patients daily. The second is working in the delivery ward of a clinic and delivered 15 babies in the month of April, including preventing a women from having surgery by successfully delivering a baby in the breech position. A third is working in a hospital emergency room as well as working with pre- and post-op patients. The fourth is working as an administrative assistant in a hospital, and also dresses patients wounds. The fifth graduate is working in a pharmacy as well as assisting in surgeries. Graduate number six works in a children’s health clinic providing first aid for 30 – 25 children each month. The seventh graduate is also working in the delivery ward of a clinic. When she’s not helping to deliver babies, she dresses wounds and works in the physiotherapy department. The eighth and ninth graduates are working with AIL as health trainers teaching Afghan women various health workshops and assisting in one of AIL’s clinic when they are needed.

We would like to thank you for your support. It is because of donors like you that these bright young women were able to have career in hospitals and clinics around Afghanistan.
