Cuban Nurses are Superbly Trained, Says International Expert

Havana, September 28 (RHC-ACN)-- “Cuba has excellent training in nursing which is reflected in the early advancement of specialization,” said Chilean Erika Caballero.

Caballero, a member of the Board of the International Council of Nurses (ICN), told Cuban press that for several years the Caribbean nation has given degrees of MSc. and PhD. in that branch, while these processes are just beginning in other regional nations.

“I have a high respect for Cuban nursing. Cuba's experience in the specialty has taught us several valuable lessons on how to do things well,” she stated.

The representative of the Board of the International Council of Nurses participated here in Cuba in the 17th Cuban Nursing Congress, held at Havana's Convention Center. The event was attended by more than 400 representatives from some 15 nations.
