Bangladesh has achieved a significant progression in health sector during the last one and half decade both in public and private sectors. Almost all the indicators that prove the improvement of health status are running upwards. Practically an enormous contribution of private health care sector has made it possible.
SQUARE College of Nursing is established with a view to contributing to the health care sector in Bangladesh by producing a large number of skilled and qualified nurses. Because there is a huge demand of nurses, who have real professional dexterity. Public and private health care settings need nurses with increasing responsibilities and advanced pro-active roles to ensure the delivery of health care services. Most of the good private hospitals employed foreign nurse to meet the need of quality nursing care. SQUARE College of Nursing has been established to fulfill the inland need of accomplished nurses and then to send them abroad as a part of our skilled manpower.
We know nursing is a challenging profession in Bangladesh. Nursing training began in Bangladesh in 1947. But the scope of higher study was very limited till the recent past. There are only 5 government and 7 private nursing colleges all over the country that run B.Sc. Nursing course having around 500 intakes in total per year. The number is not at all sufficient to meet the demand. All these efforts and its success depends on well trained , well motivated and well compensated health care professionals in which nurses are a critical component. Without qualified nurses the whole health care system will not improve, patient will not be cared for and there will be great health problem. There is serious shortage of diploma nurses, too, in the country. The quality of nursing education and clinical skills are below the minimum world standard. For a well balanced health care system there should be 4-6 nurses for every doctor. But in Bangladesh present doctor nurse ration is frustrating (3:1). The alarm bell rings when the demand ofdiploma nurses is increasing and there is decreased production rate.
However the present government of Bangladesh has taken some steps to promote nursing as a dignified profession.SQUAREis always with the good initiatives SQUARECollege of Nursing is an emblem of that spirit.
Health is a basic right for all human beings regardless of gender, nationality, religion, ethnicity, caste or creed. This is a unique endowment from the part of the almighty creator. Though health is an individual property, the responsibility to keep it sound is collective. An individual cannot lead a healthy life if the people around him carry diseases and remain unhealthy. So the whole human race should be treated as a ‘unified cluster of holy spirit’. SQUARECollege of Nursing believes on the sanctity of soul and serenity of human life on Earth.
