Rural Community-Health Nursing Programme

SVCON at their Rural Community-Health Nursing Programme

The distant village of Kunjirwadi, Dist. Pune, is the current address of the 16 students of the fourth year batch of SVCON, Pune. As part of their 4 – week Rural Community-Health Nursing programme, the students have taken up an accommodation in the village itself and have become full-time health care-takers of the villagers here.

The Work Begins…
As a first step, the students conducted a survey to establish the immediate health concerns of the people living here, along with the other required statistics. Each student has adopted a total of five families of the village, and on a daily basis, monitors their health conditions, especially of the ailing persons. The various cases include diabetics, paralysis, and pediatric cases, in addition to common diseases like malaria, flu etc. The students work in close association with the government Public Health Centre in the village, as also with the government-run public school, the Aanganwadi, and the office of the Sarpanch, or head of the village.

Awareness as a Preventive Step…
On learning that basic cleanliness and hygiene are a crucial matter in the village, the students have taken additional efforts in the direction of creating awareness in the minds of the villagers, of the need as well as the benefits of maintaining hygiene, also as a first step towards prevention of one of the most common diseases in these parts, malaria. The awareness activities include exhibitions with models, charts etc., street plays in different parts of the village as well as at the Gram Panchyat meeting, health talks in the schools, at the Aanganwadi , and many others. The students also touch upon the topic of the current pandemic of ‘Swine Flu’ – educating the villagers about the symptoms, the cure, and the preventive measures to be taken, to help fight the pandemic.

CEO, Sadhu Vaswani Mission, Visits the Students…
The CEO of the Sadhu Vaswani Mission, Gen. Israni, on a visit to the village was truly impressed with the difference that the students’ work was creating in the village. He further encouraged the students by pointing out to them that it is in the villages that the development of the country should first begin, the most important avenues being health and education. The Sarpanch, the Principal at the public school, and the medical officer at the PHC, all shared wonderful reviews of the students’ work with the CEO, who made personal visits to all of them to gain feedback and comments on the students’ performance.

A Home Away From Home…
It gladdened the hearts to see that the students, during their stay in the village, were mastering several other skills as well – in their rooms they have divided themselves into different committees, each responsible for house-hold activities such as cooking, cleaning, shopping for daily ration, etc. Principal Lt. Col. (Mrs.) Manonmani. V. (Retd.), is confident that the students will do good to master these skills. She also pointed out that this would help the students a great deal in their overall development of their personalities, in addition to learning-on-the-job and contributing to the community at large. During their stay in the village, the students also continue to hold their sanctuary period, or their prayer period, to seek the blessings of the Master for their daily endeavours.

Towards a New Beginning…

At the end of their programme, the students will submit to the Sarpanch, the results and findings of their studies, along with any suggestions for improvement for the betterment of the villagers.

The Lamp Lighting Ceremony at SV College of Nursing: A Solemn Tradition Continues..

The Lamp Lighting Ceremony at SV College of Nursing

The Sadhu Vaswani College of Nursing continues the solemn tradition of old – The Lamp Lighting Ceremony – that symbolizes the passing of knowledge and igniting the souls of the budding nurses with the ideals of compassion and care. It is held every year at SVCON for the new batch of first year students who are essentially being initiated into the field of nursing.

It was held on the 18th of November in the sacred hall of the Gita Mandir at the Sadhu Vaswani Mission, Pune.

Rev. Dada also took time out to grace and bless the occasion. The proceedings started with prayers, and a thought taken from the Noori Granth (a collection of songs and hymns by Sadhu Vaswani).

The song of the Lady with the Lamp, Florence Nightingale, “O, she comes” sung by the students reminded of the legendary woman, the founder of nursing, who taught the world the importance of compassion and selfless service.

The Principal of SVCON, Lt. Col. (Mrs.) Manonmani Venkat, read out the Annual Report of the present 104 nursing students of the college. Out of the 30 First Year students of SVCON, three are sponsored by the company – Lexi pens and one by the Mission itself.

Then the Principal took the stage to start off the tradition of lamp lighting – with a lit candle and two teachers lighted their candles from her. Each student then came forward with a candle and lit it from the teachers as a symbol of that light.

SVCON leads International Day of Midwife in Pune –
Report on Celebration of International Day of Midwife – 5th May, 2011

International Day of Midwives is celebrated all over the world on 5th May, every year. This year the theme is “Midwives around the world take to the road to highlight maternal mortality”.

Over 340,000 women die each year, with millions more suffering infection and disability as a result of preventable maternal causes. The International Confederation of Midwives, alongside UN agencies, WHO and a range of other international partners, is committed to addressing maternal mortality and morbidity through greater access to essential midwifery care worldwide, particularly in developing countries where 90% of maternal deaths occur.

The aim of the day is to celebrate midwifery and to bring awareness of the importance of midwives’ work to as many people as possible. This is done in many different ways according to what works best in each country.

This 5km walk is the first stage of the road to Durban where midwives from around the world will gather at the ICM Triennial Congress to be held in June 2011 and help us ensure that global commitments to midwifery remain firmly on the agenda.

As member of the Society of Midwives, Pune chapter, Sadhu Vaswani College of Nursing (SVCON) organised 5 km. walk on 6th May, 2011 from 8.30 a.m. onwards, under the guidance of Lt.Col. Mrs. Manonmani Venkat, Principal of SVCON and Secretary of Society of Midwives, India.

This walk started from Inlaks and Budhrani Hospital and covered the Koregaon Park and Bund Garden area. Total 75 nursing students and 10 faculty members participated in the walk. Students had prepared banners, posters, placards creating awareness about the role of a midwife and drawing attention to the severity of maternal and newborn mortality and morbidity. Before proceeding for the walk, Lt. Col.(Mrs.) Venkat addressed the students highlighting the importance of the role of the Midwife in reducing the maternal mortality rate.
