RESOLUTION


The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF NIGERIAN NURSES AND MIDWIVES should catalyze cohesive harmonization of all stakeholders in nursing services at all levels of policy making and implementation, and other political nurses’s association and non-governmental nursing agencies to initiate a laudable ” One Voice One Destination Agenda”

The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF NIGERIAN NURSES AND MIDWIVES should launch a RE-BRANDING COMMITTEE for the profession.

All Nursing Luminary Events and Congresses should be well broadcasted on the digital, social and editorial media systems in Nigeria.

The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF NIGERIAN NURSES AND MIDWIVES website should be revitalized with innovations and exploit the opportunities it can give, social media handles must be functional and informative, e.g, twitter , facebook page, instagram and others. We want Nigerian Nurses’ dynamism well projected and the social media systems well-harnessed.

It is resolved that RN/RM Certificates should have educational quantification and commencement of POST GRADUATE PROGRAMMES tantamount to the academic transformation of Nursing profession in Nigeria must be structured with adequate intervention by the  NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF NIGERIAN NURSES AND MIDWIVES,  NURSING AND MIDWIFERY COUNCIL OF NIGERIA, and NIGERIA UNIVERSITY COMMISSION.

The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF NIGERIAN NURSES AND MIDWIVES should begin to have a scientific partnership with WEST AFRICAN COLLEGE OF NURSES and agencies to commence progressive research activities in the healthcare industry as it relate with Nursing in Nigeria.

The Nigerian Nurses hereby request that the MANDATORY CONTINOUS PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME which is not currently meeting the net demands of professional  development of Nigerian Nurses  should not be compulsive i.e optional, other avenues of professional development via workshops, trainings and conferences should be graded with points adequate enough to meet up with pre-licensing requirements rather than having a monopolized system for professional development.

Media misrepresentation of Nursing image must be strategically suppressed through individual roles via written articles on media, telephone calls to radio shows relating to healthcare matters, and confronting authorities when necessary. Nurses must start speaking for themselves.

A committee should be set up to inhibit the malignant activities of auxillary/certified nursing assistants (Quacks in Nursing) and their association in Nigeria.

Nigeria Nurses are not being employed because of them and public health is greatly at risk.

All Nigerian Nurses must be begin to start strategic and dynamic politicking to drive a forceful change necessary for the sustainability of the progressive future of Nursing in Nigeria with consequential benefits for the public healthcare system.

There is an urgent need to review the legislation that establishes the practices of Nursing in Nigeria. We need strong, versatile and robust legislature to achieve the glorious dreams of the Nigerian Nurses.
