11 - Apr - 2019

A NORWAK Delegation has visited the faculty of nursing in the framework of reinforcing the ongoing cooperation between the IUG Faculty of Nursing and the Norwegian Aid Foundation NORWAC. Besides, it comes to discuss the coming scientific visits of Prof.  Yousef Aljeesh, IUG Associate Professor in Public Health, to the University of Oslo in Norway for the purpose of opening joint cooperation and knowing about the educational systems in the field of nursing and midwifery.

The delegation included Mrs. Synne Holan, from NORWAC; Mrs. Ellen Blix, Professor in midwife at Oslo Metropolitan University. In this visit, Mrs. Holan provided logistical support to the midwifery laboratories of the faculty, consisting of a modern model and teaching module that mimics the birth process. This module is characterized by simplicity and flexibility and suitability for the increasing number of midwifery students in the faculty. The delegation has praised the Midwifery Department for its sophisticated modules that keep pace with modern and newborn births.
