BCCC Upgrades Standard at School of Nursing

first_imgAfter upgrading standards at its Department of Health Science’s School of Nursing, the Bomi County Community College (BCCC) in Tubmanburg stands to be reaccredited by the Liberia Board for Nursing & Midwifery (LBNM) in August 2016.The administration of the BCCC, under President Zobong Norman, has expanded the school’s demonstration lab; added several classrooms; acquired instructors with the requisite degrees; added an air-conditioner; and acquired current nursing and midwifery text books, among others, as part of LBNM’s requirements for the school’s reaccreditation.The college’s first accreditation was withdrawn in 2013, with 140 students sent home because the department at the time lacked standard requirements, including unqualified teachers, to execute the program.Taking over the BCCC upon his appointment by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf with a new Board of Directors and a shared vision to ensure that BCCC serves prospective students from Cape Mount, Gbapolu and Bomi counties, Dr. Norman and his new team started working.To complete the requirement for the college’s reaccreditation, the new administration further expanded the school’s library, divided classroom sections to accommodate the required 45 students per class, created a computer lab, and provided a television set. It is also installing an Internet center, among others, to get the program back in shape for the resumption of nursing and midwifery courses in the September school term.Working along with the LBNM, the school held a two-day seminar (July 18 and 19) at the school’s Fatoma Compound campus, with 35 participants, including teachers, nurses, RNs (Registered Nurses), PAs (Physician Assistants) and others attending.Facilitators included three officials from the Liberia Board of Nursing & Midwifery (LBNM) headed by Mr. Humphrey Gibbs-Loweal, the Director of Phebe School of Nursing & Midwifery, who is also the Assistant Chairman of LBNM; Mrs. Darboi G. Korkoyah, Monitoring & Evaluation Director at LBNM; and Mrs. Cecelia C. Kpangbala-Flomo, LBNM’s Registrar.They were assisted by Mrs. Josephine D. Snorton, Health Consultant at the BCCC, who shared the vision to see the resumption of the program there. The two-day seminar discussed ‘Curriculum Implementation (credit hours)’ by Director Gibbs-Loweal; ‘Inter-Disciplinary Manual & Log’ by Mrs. Korkoya; and ‘Good Governance’ by Mrs. Flomo.The seminar was interactive and the participants excitedly contributed to its progress. The second day’s session examined the ‘Roles & Responsibilities for Preceptors, Instructors and Students’ by Mrs. Korkoyah; ‘Effective Teaching Skills’ by Director Gibbs-Loweal; and ‘Assessment Tools’ by Mrs. Flomo. Earlier, BCCC President Norman expressed appreciation for the college’s persistence, and support from the various stakeholders, including the Board of Directors, the student population, the community, the Bomi County Caucus, as well as authorities at the Liberia Government Hospital in Tubmanburg, whose head, Dr. Williamatta S. Williams-Gibson, attended the program.Dr. Norman also commended the Liberia Board for Nursing & Midwifery (LBNM) for its support to BCCC that resulted in excellent progress in a short period of time since his administration took over.Meanwhile, BCCC has established the Bomi Youth Center, which provides computer literacy programs for the community. The center will resume classes on August 1, with subjects including Microsoft Publisher; Microsoft Access; Corel Draw; Photoshop CS6; Quick Books; Introduction to Microsoft Office Suite; and Internet Explorer. The center has graduated over 200 students from beginner, intermediate and advanced levels.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Stronger Human Trafficking law says Bahamas AG

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppBahamas, March 28, 2017 – Nassau – No more ambiguity, once it is passed, it will now also be illegal to even organize or encourage others to participate in human trafficking based on information gathered in any human smuggling investigation.Attorney General, Allyson Maynard Gibson yesterday presented an amendment to the current law, which she says bolsters the legislation on the books so that no one escapes repercussion for these crimes.  While addressing the Senate yesterday, the AG explained that the 2008 legislation had holes, which saw an accused perpetrator be set free after being convicted; the woman won on appeal at Privy Council.There is a repeal and replacement of a section of the bill which now makes it clearer that actions like withholding documents are indictable offenses, which due to the proposed change will certainly bring convictions.#MagneticMediaNews#notoleranceforhumansmuggling#strongerlawsonhumantrafficking#AllysonMaynardGibson#humantrafficking Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:#AllysonMaynardGibson, #humantrafficking, #magneticmedianews, #notoleranceforhumansmuggling, #strongerlawsonhumantrafficking Jamaica working to reduce human traffickinglast_img read more
