Nursing: A Profession Never To Desire In Ghana by Iddrisu Alfred by katty : August 27, 2018, 11:46:17 AM
Gone are the days when the nursing profession was a profession desired by both young and old. In those days political influence has no impact on the profession and every call was genuine and pure. It was those times that nurses work with enthusiasm and with the 'nightingale' spirit. It is not like that today! Politics has dabbled in, and spoiled all the gains and successes we have chalked so far.

The nursing profession is now on a downward trend not because the human skill needed to work is not there, but because nurses are now trained and allowed to rot at home not because the demand for nurses in our hospitals are low, but because someone somewhere has failed in his or her responsibilities.

It beats my imagination and leave me with the feeling that , the nursing profession is the easiest route to getting unemployed.

Every past and present government has helped in one way or the other in making the nursing profession redundant and unattractive but the latter has done worst in terms of helping the trained nurse and improving health ( no malicious intent).

While the previous NDC government will accept blame for scrapping off the nurses trainee allowances amidst tangible reasons, the current Npp government should also squarely embrace the blame for failing to provide clearance and subsequent posting of nurses after promising same while in opposition.

And to even add insults to injuries, nurses that were trained to heal patients are now persuaded to enrol in a not too good policy known as NABCO where they will be required to heal Ghana; a sick nation with sick leaders.

Don't get me wrong, the professional bodies set up to regulate nursing activities in the country are not better. Over the years, leadership of the nursing profession has given in to the caprices and whims of political players perhaps in a bid not to be shown the exit.

It is sad that after several years of various struggles, you complete school and instead of the government of the day to keep to their end of the bargain, they rather ungratefully resort to doing hide and seek with the trained but not posted nurse.

As Ghanaians we can't run away but we can help build a better Ghana with our decisions on elections day. As unposted nurses, once we drink our kalypo and resort to taking selfies , we won't fall for honey dripping promises ,never !! Not again.
