Discharge Planning Workshop

A discharge planning workshop was held at the end of July for 33 nurses from Sandilands Rehabilitation Centre, Princess Margaret Hospital and the Department of Public Health. The purpose of the workshop was to provide nurses with a comprehensive understanding of the discharge process, including information and resources to enable the acquired skills and knowledge to be used back in the work place and to enlighten them about their integral role and responsibilities in the discharge planning process. The report of the workshop can be downloaded from the link below.

The NACB celebrates the
life of a nursing legend

Nurses in the Bahamas announce the home going service of Mrs Castella M  Bowleg, 29th June 2014. A serious, no nonsense Nurse Educator, Mrs. Bowleg can boast of her influence in leaving behind a cadre of strong Nurses who can lead with excellence and a focus on patient care. She served as President of the Association from 1992 to 1996. Mrs Bowleg was instrumental in the launching of the Global Initiative ICN Leadership for Change (LFC) Programme in The Bahamas. In addition, she served as The First Chair of the Nursing Council of The Bahamas who was not the Director of Nursing during her tenure. During the Reform of Privatization in Princess Margaret Hospital, Mrs Bowleg agitated for the position of the Private Duty Nurses to remain on the Team of Nurses in the Private Area. Mrs Bowleg was an exceptional Nurse Leader, a great Mentor to the Leadership in the Nurses Association; the Caribbean Nurses Organization and highly regarded internationally. She will be greatly missed. (Willamae Stuart)
