HRH Princess Muna's Address

Ladies & Gentlemen

  Recently, nursing in Jordan started to enjoy more public respect and confidence. The last decade witnessed significant landmarks in capacity building in nursing education and service and in the improvement of nurses image and status. Today, I would like to highlight one of our most recent achievements, which is the establishment of the Jordanian Nursing Council.

 

Jordan is taking the lead in our region in recognizing nursing as an independent profession. His Majesty King Abdullah the Second has articulated a clear vision for the right of his people for quality health care services. HM realized that nursing is an integral part of the countryís health system development.

Based upon this belief His Majesty issued a decree in 2002 to establish the Jordanian Nursing Council. The aim of  this council is to regulate the nursing profession through the development of by laws and credentialing policies and strategies to protect the health, safety and welfare  of the public.

Currently, nursing in Jordan has the power to set national standards and mobilize resources to develop sustained reform and support development of all nursing programmes.

With the establishment of the JNC, the development of nursing in Jordan will challenge nurses and leaders to identify both hazards and opportunities that stimulate their imagination and encourage their creativity.

Our goal at the JNC for the future is better educated nursing workforce who would be able to absorb the rapid changes in medical science and technology.

Opportunities for advancement will be given to all nurses through the development of a national clinical ladder by law, Nurseís act by law and leadership development programmes, thus acknowledging each nurseís education practice and expertise.

We all realize that technology and new knowledge will change the roles and responsibilities of health care professionals over the next decade, but the publicís need for caring continues  to be top priority. The caring professional of the future will play a critical role in improving the quality of health in Jordan.
