Kenya Nurses threaten strike over Health Amendment Bill 2018 by katty : November 06, 2018, 08:58:48 PM
The National Nurses Association of Kenya is protesting the Health Amendment Bill 2018 that is now before parliament claiming it failed to capture its views.

The association is now threatening a nurses strike in one month to push for inclusion of their views in the bill as well as four slots in the Nursing Council of Kenya as the custodians of the profession.



Just a week after Kenya National Union of Nurses, called off Nurses strike at Kenyatta National Hospital, after reaching a compromise with the Ministry of Health, National Nurses Association of Kenya is threatening another nationwide nurses strike over the Health Amendment bill 2018 currently before parliament.

The association claims it has been shortchanged in the bill and denied its rightful position in the board of the nursing council of Kenya yet it is a major stakeholder in the profession.

The association wants nurses to superintend over all apparatus pertaining to their work at medical facilities.

It claims the bill falls short of public participation a tenet in the constitution and should be declared null and void.

It wants a clear legal framework to govern the profession and weed out those masquerading as nurses to protect the integrity of the profession.
