he Nursing Services department of Federal Neuro-Psychiatric Hospital, Benin City yesterday Wednesday 16th December 2020 launched a Handbook for Nurses in the hospital. It is noteworthy that the book is first of its kind since the inception of the institution. The essence of the handbook was to provide a guide for Nurses to be abreast with the procedures, work ethics and standard practice in the hospital wards.
The event which held in the hospital’s conference hall at Uselu, had in attendance: Dr. I.O. Agbonile, Medical Director; Dr. J.O. Omoaregba, Head of Clinical Services department; Mr. J.E.

Esene, State Chairman of NANNM; Mrs. Igbe, representative of the Director of Nursing Services department, University of Benin Teaching Hospital (UBTH); Nursing staff, student Nurses, and other invited guests.
In his address, the Medical Director extolled Mr. J.E. Agbidi describing him as a pace-setter and commended the entire Nursing department for publishing the book. He said that, “the book will be a good guide for nurses in the hospital and those who will join the hospital in the future and also for others who wish to know what nurses do. This will thus aid better operation and collaboration”.
He further stated that, the nursing profession is currently one of the most sought after courses in tertiary academic institutions in the country, and therefore enjoined the Nurses to continue to uphold the ethics of the noble profession. He thereafter challenged other departments of the hospital to emulate the worthy example set by the Nursing department and urged them to come up with a similar book for their own department given the deadline of the first quarter of the year 2021. He added that, the essence of the foregoing is aimed at having a comprehensive book, a compendium that will contain the various departments of the hospital.
