Lagos State Govt Bows to Nurses, Shelves Plans to Train, Recruit Quack Nurses by katty : April 12, 2018, 12:14:24 PM
The Lagos State Government has finally bowed to pressure from Nurses and stopped the proposed  training of quack nurses. This was was revealed by the the Lagos State Chairman of the National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives in a WhatsApp post earlier today.

Lagos Nurses had earlier last month called a press conference to accuse the state government of planning to jeopardize the health of her citizens by training quacks for six months and deploying them to the hospital to render nursing services without recourse to the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria which is the statutory body recognized to monitor nursing training in the country.

Below is his Whatsapp update:

RE: TRAINING OF NURSING ASSISTANTS

The planned strike action has been put on hold.
The Lagos State Employment Trust Fund met with State NANNM just few days after the press conference.

NANNM reemphasized the fact that only the regulatory body, NMCN can engaged in such training or give approval.

They apologized and promised to develop another program that will be exclusive of Nursing care.

The Honourable Commissioner for Health also wrote NANNM to inform us that the ministry is looking into the matter. Our Director of Nursing at the ministry is equally on top of the matter. AIT mentioned the latest development on the matter.

We are watching.

Notify us if you noticed any new development
