Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday said that nursing and paramedical staff are the backbone of the health and medical system. “In the Covid-19 era, we all have seen and understood their massive importance. It is necessary to make significant adjustments to nursing and paramedical training in light of future needs,” he said.
In view of this, the CM gave instructions to launch ‘Mission Niramaya’. He issued several directives on the enhancement of educational quality while assessing the operation of nursing colleges in the state. The chief minister guided the Medical Education Department’s officers on how to better employ the skilled youth.
He said that prior to giving nursing and paramedical institutions recognition, the requirements should be strictly followed. recognition should only be given when there are sufficient teachers and the institute has infrastructure that meets the required standards. “Institutions that don’t meet standards shouldn’t be acknowledged at all. While verifying the Aadhaar of the teachers serving in all the nursing/paramedical institutions of the state, their details should be provided on the portal,” CM Yogi said.
He urged the officers to pay special attention to the fairness of the admission test in the institutes. “There should be a system in which the invigilators are from other institutions. CCTV surveillance should be used to watch the exams as well,” he said.
CM Yogi said that many institutes of the state are doing good work including some private sector institutions. “Such best practices should be implemented in other institutions as well. For this, a mentor-mentee model should be adopted,” he said.
The CM urged to work systematically toward better employment in addition to improved training. “In order to decide on this policy, reputable private sector hospitals should be consulted. For young people pursuing nursing training, practical experience is crucial,” he said.
