August 23, 2017 Pallavi Madhukar

Gramin health is back with Udaan 2- An initiative to empower our nurses who are stationed in remote rural areas of India.

I have been asked a number of times, how do you train your nurses?

To answer this question I am writing this blog.

Gramin Healthcare is a primary healthcare service provider that is dedicated to bringing change in current ecosystem of rural India, so how do we do it?

Nurses are the connecting link to the forgotten millions of rural India.We provide services for detection of chronic diseases as well as acute disease according to the patient requirements.People have trust on nurses and hence are able to create an unbreakable bond with them.

Our training program empowers them technically, digitally, introduction to new portable equipment and interpersonal skills help them to withstand and acclimatise with the rigour of rural India.In order to provide relevant and accurate service, it is necessary to keep them updated with the latest technology, introduction to latest portable equipment.

As nurses have same basic skill sets itemised in their practice portfolios but it is obvious that different fields of practice are more developed in certain areas, our training program enhances those skills.A variety of teaching methods are used to enhance the learning experience including didactic instruction, group discussions, skills laboratories, simulation, precepted clinical experiences, competency-based orientation, and online learning.


Comprehensiveness of this training programs helps the facilitating doctor to focus on acute/chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes etc. as its number is increasing in rural areas.

Why do we need to train them given they have been trained as a nurse?The theoretical knowledge is essential in dealing with the patients but by continuous upgrading their knowledge base will help them cater well in these areas.Given they are stationed in rural areas this training helps them to facilitate indigenous population in a better way.
