The department of Nursing Services constitutes about 25% of the total workforce of the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital. The Nursing workforce is quite rich in its professional qualification stratum that encompasses holders of Masters Degrees, Basic degrees, Diplomas and Certificates. The diversity in specialization and experience has significantly contributed to the upsurge in the quality of services provided by the nurses.
To steer the nursing workforce, there is an established nursing administration team of eighteen (18) members that comprises the Chief Nurse, the Deputy Chief Nurse, an Administrator and fifteen Nurse Managers, besides the ward in charges and a competent teaching team.
The mandate of the department is to provide quality-nursing services that ultimately lead to reduction in mortality, morbidity and mobility. The key components in the exercise of this mandate are professionalism, cooperation with other health team members, use of appropriate care models and processes, diligence, supportive supervision, training and research.
The department is committed to the realization of the Hospital vision through furtherance of the Hospital’s mission of providing accessible, specialized quality health care services and teaching facilities through research, training, capacity building, innovation and participation in National Health planning.
This commitment makes the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital nurses equals among equals nationally and internationally. This has resulted in the Hospital winning some of the national awards and producing some of the current nurse leaders in the African Region.
