‘For whom must African nursing knowledge count?’ A thought-provoking question and the perfect way to kick-start this year’s Building Children’s Nursing conference. The only event of its kind in Africa, with over 100 registered delegates, on 23rd June 2021, nursing and leadership professionals from 12 different countries came together to consider and celebrate what counts in the excellent nursing care of our continent’s children and their families.
The first meeting of 2021, for the Children’s Nursing Educators Forum (CNEF), was a virtual meeting attended by educators from 8 different countries, including South Africa, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Malawi, Eswatitni, Namibia, Zambia and Saudi Arabia. The date of our meeting fortuitously coincided with International Nurses Day!
We are heartbroken to share the news that our beloved colleague and friend Tracy-ann, Clinical Educator within the Children’s Nursing Development Unit since 2015, has passed away from complications arising from COVID-19.
