12th April, 2012 Rufaidah Nursing College (RNC), I strongly believe will become a center of quality nursing education. RNC will play a crucial role in its contribution towards quality nursing care not only in private sector but also in public sector of the country. It has been created on the basis of a clear vision to produce nurses with excellence in educational competence and ethical values. As a chain institution of Prime Foundation, Peshawar Medical College (PMC) it is led by a visionary team who mean it whatever they say. The tariff and fee structure it offers is highly subsidized. This was said Prof. Azmat Tallat, Dean Postgraduate Medical Institute (PGMI), Peshawar in his speech here at Peshawar yesterday while inaugurating the first ever nursing college in the private sector of KP province.

Earlier Prof. Najibul Haq, Chief Executive Prime Foundation and Dean PMC in his opening speech welcomed the Chief Guest Prof. Azmat Tallat and the distinguished audience. He informed the audience that Prime Foundation, Peshawar Medical College has remained in the forefront of health and social development since its inception in 2005. Today while launching RNC, we are simultaneously holding closing ceremony of the series of refresher courses that were held over the period of one year as capacity building initiative by Prime Foundation in collaboration with International Development & Relief Foundation (IDRF), Canada to upgrade the birth assistance skills of midwives from flood affected districts of Charsadda and Nowshera. Through these refreshers of six weeks duration with an intake of 16 midwives in each, a total number of around 130 midwives have been trained. Importantly most of them had their first opportunities of practical training through these refreshers because their pre service training at various public and private sector institutes extending over years did give them theoretical training but provided them little opportunity if any of hands on training. He hoped that RNC will enable us sustaining such initiatives on a continuous basis. Clean delivery kits and certificates were also distributed among the trained midwives on this occasion.

Ms. Akhtar Bano, Principal of RNC in her introduction about Rufaidah Nursing College told that the college was named after Rufaidah bint-e- Saad. She was Sahabia and first nurse in the documented history. As such Muslims were founders of this caring and healing profession for mankind. She told that RNC by being placed within the premises of Kuwait Teaching Hospital afforded one window opportunity of quality clinical care learning to its prospective students. RNC is recognized by Pakistan Nursing Council and is affiliated with Riphah International University, Islamabad. It is mandated with offering 2 years degree program in BSc Nursing starting with Post Registered Nursing (Post RN) course for the existing staff nurses.

The event came to end with Vote of Thanks by Prof. Inayat ur Rahman Khalil, Director, Postgraduate Studies at PMC
