Société coopérative médicale de Beaulieu scholarship
I work as a Staff Nurse II at Dzongkhag hospital under the district administration Samdrup Jongkhar.
I have joined this hospital since July, 2007 after completing my 3 years diploma in General Nursing and Midwifery from the only health institute in the country, Royal Institute of Health Sciences in Capital city Thimphu. I have also been working as EmONC focal for the district since 2010.
My additional responsibility as an EmONC Focal person for last 4 years have given me lots of ideas on where we lag behind in serving them better. For instance my districts have lots of clients who delivered unplanned babies, where family planning success is actually below normal. Our family planning services still has to pick its pace, urgently. Likewise there are lots of mother still dying of PPH. I especially want to be able to help in these areas.
The knowledge and skills that I would acquire through this course will enhance my capacity to help address these issues.
