Enthusiastic Nursing students in Uganda

In the UK it's not a matter of "once a nurse always a nurse" which is a quote from nurse Ruth today in Kiwoko. We must maintain our registration by showing we have practised and by showing how we have updated our skills theoretically and practically. We all grumble about doing updates lectures even those that are statutory and we all ensure we get the time back, but this is Uganda
The nine nurses who came for continuing medical education today were just off duty and they will not get their time back I doubt they would even ask. They do not need to show evidence of their continuing education but they want to learn and our so enthusiastic. The topic I led today was assessing the trauma patient using ABCDE.
We had a practical session at the end on basic life support and again they were all very enthusiastic.
