Over 600 Nurses And Midwives Cry For Work backposted 2 week ago at 12:25
About 600 nurses and midwives who were referred after sitting for the licensing Examination in 2010 to rewrite in 2011 and later passed the exams, have raised concerns over the inability of the Nurses and Mildwives Council to post them to the field
The group wonders why a great number of the Nurses and Midwives are wasting away in their homes when health institutions continue to get choked with patients with a small percentage of nurses and midwives struggling to attend to them.
Spokesperson for the group, Michael Amponsah at a press conference in Kumasi called on the National Service Secretariat and the Health Director to immediately post them without further delays.
"We are just surprised about the reluctance of the Nurses and Midwives council and the National Service Secretariat to post newly qualified nurses and midwives to work" He said.
"In times like this we expect the council to be proactive, people are not qualified but they are working in private institutions and are being paid so why is that people who’s fees were subsidized have completed and are sitting down" He queried
