The College of Health Sciences at Qatar University collaborated with the Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC) in hosting a graduation ceremony for 325 nurses who received intensive training of 24 hours divided into six modules over six weeks. 

The graduation ceremony started with opening remarks by Prof. Asmaa Al Thani, Vice President of Medical and Health Sciences at Qatar University followed by Dr. Layla AlDahnaim, Manager of School Health at PHCC and Dr. Hanan Abdul Rahim, Dean of College of Health Sciences.

This program is part of the strategic partnership and collaboration between QU Health and Qatar's national health care system. The event aims to recognize and celebrate the outcomes of this extensive training program, which began with the needs assessment of the school nurses’ training needs through content development and delivery.

Dr. Hanan Abdul Rahim, Dean of College of Health Sciences, commented: "School health nurses are a vital part of the public health system, and their impact extends well beyond the school walls into the larger community. This training program aimed to develop their professional capacity and was prepared carefully and thoughtfully by faculty members in the Department of Public Health at the College of Health Sciences and the Department of Human Nutrition with consultation and collaboration from colleagues in School Health. We are proud of our collaboration with PHCC and with the School Health department, which was very keen to invest in the capacity building of their school nurses."

Dr. Layla AlDahnaim, Manager of School Health in PHCC, commented: “Based on the goals and visions of the school health program, the School Health Department at the Primary Health Care Corporation, in cooperation with the College of Health Sciences at Qatar University, has prepared the intensive training program in preventive and public health, which is one of the pillars of training for school nursing as community health nurses. The effectiveness of this training for school nurses and the positive impact of utilizing such valuable training outcomes in nursing practicing will enhance students’ health and promotion.

Feedback received from participants was highly positive with regard to the content and delivery of the sessions and the anticipated benefits. Moving forward, the College of Health Sciences plans to continue delivering engaging training sessions related to public health topics.
