President Maithripala Sirisena said the government will provide required financial provisions immediately to establish the Nursing Faculty to award Nursing Degrees, which has been a long term demand.
President held a meeting with the Government Nursing Officers Association yesterday at the Presidential Secretariat.
International Nurses Day is celebrated around the world on 12 May each year. The meeting was held to coincide with the celebration, where nurses are acknowledged for the contribution they make to society.
The President also drew his attention into the matter that when the unions make demands they focus only on career needs.
He pointed out the importance for them to present new ideas and proposals through their unions to achieve national goals.
