Improving the Quality of Nurse Practitioner Education (Botswana)

International Journal

The Nurse Pratitioner Volume 33 Number 3 Mar 01, 2008

“The FNP Program offered nurses the opportunity to acquire advance skills in diagnosis and management of common health problems in PHC settings. Because there were so few allied professionals, FNP students were trained in dentistry, minor surgery, and laboratory diagnosis. They had to be prepared to handle any emergency situation, especially if they were the only trained health professional in a remote rural village.”
