“I don’t know if you have thought about that. This is not a job now; this is national duty. You can be called upon…COVID has shown that to us, where we have retired nurses who are asked to come back out and give of their service.”

She added, “You are part of that now and I need you to understand that. This is not just a job; you are part of national duty. You and your family are not just dependant on what just you do here, the nation is awaiting your formal entry into nursing services here on the island.”

“We are glad that you chose to be here with us at the Barbados Community College. We know that the environment for educational offerings is extremely competitive and the fact that you choose us shows that you have a level of trust in what we do here at the College.”

“We had several setbacks, quite naturally, because of COVID and because of the shutdowns and the pauses and so, but right now we are going full steam ahead to try to ensure that by the end of the first quarter of 2022 we will be opening our doors at least to part of the community.”

Dr. Comma, who is also the Co-chair of the NAS programme, said Sagicor Life Inc. has and will continue to lend its support the initiative, which is a joint venture between BCC and that insurance company. The first set of students commenced classes in 2020.

“One of the features is that it has to have a heavy focus on customer service. These skills are important and paramount and they are the bedrock of the programme, but we are saying it is not business as usual. As the speakers before me have all mentioned, COVID has changed the landscape that we live in, it has changed the landscape that we work in, and so persons who go to The Estates or other homes are looking for superior customer service.”

She added, “Ladies and gentlemen in Barbados we know how to be hospitable, but what we are saying, we need to infuse that customer service in our everyday association with our jobs. And this is what this programme is designed to do.”

Among those at the head table during the orientation, held in the Liberal Arts Auditorium, were BCC’s Principal, Annette Alleyne; BCC’s Registrar, Roger Worrell; and Head of Nursing, Karen Worrell.
