Nurse Educator, Cameroon Baptist Convention Health Department, Tiko, Cameroon
I joined the Cameroon Baptist Convention Health Department as a nurse/ midwife in the year 2005. I was charged with the responsibility of monitoring and caring for pregnant women. In 2007, I was appointed as the pioneer site coordinator for the HIV care and treatment centre of Baptist Hospital Mutengene, a position which I held for six years. As the head of department I was able to coordinate and motivate a large number of staff, retained clients in a busy clinic, build on –the- job-capacity for new colleagues and also maintained the confidentiality of people living with HIV (PLHIV).
My career objective has always been to provide quality health care and contribute in capacity building in health care provision. In attempts to meet my objectives, I went back to the university of Buea in Cameroon for a master program in Nursing education in 2013. I graduated in July 2015. Since then I have been partnering with the Cameroon Baptist Convention Health department in the training of health Care personnel on the comprehensive management of PLHIV. I also render voluntary counseling services to members of my community.
My MNE research work titled “Nursing and midwifery student’s self efficacy in HIV care” is in the process of publication.
