Nurses Kick Against Move To Cede Their Training To Min. Of Education

Published on

The Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives’ Association has kicked against a move by government to cede the supervision of nursing and health training institutions in the country to the Ministry of Education.

President John Mahama Thursday revealed he has endorsed a “major proposal” to that effect, noting it is currently being considered by Cabinet.

The move, the Mr Mahama explained, would rid the system of unaccredited health training institutions that churns out nurses who eventually become unemployed after their training.

“There is one worrying phenomenon that I think we should take note of. There are few nursing training schools, privately established, that do not have accreditation from the National Accreditation Board and yet they are turning out nurses, and that is a worry,” he said

But this the GRNMA disagrees. It’s President, Kwaku Ansate-Krobea has described the decision as unfortunate, particularly so since they have not been consulted on such a proposal by the government.

“I don’t know the negotiation before such announcement but if the stakeholders do not know of this, then it is not good. We don’t accept that it will help the nurses and health delivery in the country,” he told Onua News Thursday evening.

Mr. Asante-Krobea said it would be better for the government to strengthen and ensure that laws regarding health training in the country are adhered to rather than to bring the supervision of nurses training under the MoE.
