The paediatrics and child health nursing program has been training nurses in paediatrics in Zambia since 2014. Currently the sixth cohort started the training on 7th January 2019. The aim of Zambia Registered Paediatric Nurse Training Programme is to educate students to become competent and professional practitioners in the delivery of care to children, within a family centered framework and to ensure there are sufficient qualified Registered Paediatric Nurses graduating annually to meet the needs of children in Zambia.
To date 181 nurses have completed the training and they are working across Zambia.
The programme is a partnership between the School of Nursing and Midwifery at the University of Brighton and Lusaka University College of Nursing and Midwifery.
