The ProNurse Project – Advancing Women’s Empowerment in Bangladesh

This year, CASN joined a new initiative called the ProNurse project, which aims to improve the quality of gender-responsive education and enhance the professional status of nurses in Bangladesh. Outputs include implementing an accreditation program for nursing education programs in that country.  

This 5-year project (2021-26), funded by Global Affairs Canada, will be led by Cowater International and delivered  in association with the University of Montreal, and CASN. The team will be collaborating closely with the Directorate General of Nursing and Midwifery (DGNM), the Bangladesh Nursing and Midwifery Council (BNMC) and the Bangladesh Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW).
