Ghana Nursing Council Suspends Training of Nursing Assistants Program by katty : July 04, 2018, 05:40:04 PM
The Nursing and Midwifery Council of Ghana in consultation with the Ministry of Health has announced the suspension of the training of Nurse Assistance (Clinical) and Nursing Assistance (Preventive) effective 2019/2020 academic year.

This follows the outcome of a desk review meeting held by the Ministry, Nurses and Midwifery Council, Ghana Health Service, Christian Health Association of Ghana, Teaching Hospitals and other stakeholders in respect of the health sector needs for these cadre of staff, of which the statistics show that there are adequate numbers of NAC/NAP Practitioners for the health sector.

This was affirmed during a Human Resource Forum held by the Ministry of Health early this year at the Capital View Hotel in Koforidua to review the country’s Human Resource needs for the various cadre of Nurses and Midwifes in the country among others.

A statement signed by the Registrar of the Nurses and Midwifery Council, Felix Nyante said “It was in this regard that the quotas for admissions of these programmes have been reducing since the last academic year.”

“The aim of this regulatory policy is to streamline the and strengthen the Degree and Diploma awarding Programmes in Nursing and Midwifery in order to improve the standard of practice of Nursing and Midwifery.”

The statement further advised all Deans, Heads and Principals of Nursing and Midwifery Training Institutions to plan towards the folding up of these programmes if their institutions are currently running such programme(s).
