Abstract

The demand for nurses and midwives is growing across the globe due to expanding healthcare systems and the increasing need for healthcare. Huge numbers of nurses and midwives need to be trained and become qualified via nursing and midwifery education. This study aimed to explore opinions about advancing nursing and midwifery education in Bangladesh. This was a descriptive study featuring 70 participants who represented Bangladeshi nurses and midwives. They included directors, principals, and senior nursing instructors from government nursing and midwifery educational organizations. The data were collected from a one-day network meeting organized by the Directorate General of Nursing and Midwifery. The participants’ suggestions about how to improve nursing and midwifery education in Bangladesh were collected and categorized. The study discovered 12 recommendations for improving nursing and midwifery education in Bangladesh. These were categorized into three groups: 1) administrative, 2) academic, and 3) organizational. The present study proposes changes that will improve nursing and midwifery education in Bangladesh, thereby supporting the development of skilled and qualified nurses and midwives. Nursing and midwifery authorities and policymakers should focus on these suggestions.
