He said: “We have one of the most important initiatives in this field regionally - the ‘National Initiative to Enhance the Attractiveness of Nursing,’ - which aims to attract local human resources to contribute to the community's health needs, thereby providing healthcare that complements the environment and culture of the country and enhancing the efforts to implement Emiratization in this profession.

This will contribute to improving the quality and effectiveness of healthcare services and ensure satisfaction of patients and staff. She added: “We look forward to inviting nursing staff and leaders in the UAE to discuss and find solutions to the main issues related to the impact of technological development on nursing and healthcare in general. We have plans and programs to further develop the National Initiative to enhance the attractiveness of the nursing profession and to understand the role of technology in changing the concepts of nursing care and the best ways to implement them.”

Saqr Al Hemeiri, Director of MOHAP's Training and Development Center, said: “As a Training and Development Center, we are very proud to participate in the first Emirati Nursing Conference in cooperation with the Nursing department at MOHAP, which reflects the Ministry’s commitment and keenness to develop the capabilities of nursing staff.”
