Nursing is a caring profession that plays a pivotal role in delivering health care. Nurses in the modern era have diverse and complex roles. This demands that nurses must be equipped with knowledge and skills in order to play their roles effectively in hospitals, communities and other health care settings. Therefore, continuous professional development (CPD) is the need of the day and ongoing education is the corner stone for the enhancement of quality care. Quality nursing care is dependent upon the quality of training that nurses must be provided with. Therefore, standardizing nursing education should be the foremost goal of nursing institutions in Pakistan. There is a grave national level deficiency of qualified nurses. This urge for taking initiatives in public as well as private sectors in this country to establish quality nursing training institutions in order to overcome this deficiency. College of Nursing BKMC-Mardan is one of the steps in this regard. I wish all the students of CNM-BKMC every success in their professional and personal life.
