Letter To The Punch Editor by Comrade Awojide

My attention has been drawn to a publication in your Newspaper  of Thursday 29th December, 2016 with the caption "Nurse pulls off baby's hand during delivery". The National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives, Lagos State Council is highly perturbed by this publication and wonders whether people are really knowledgeable about who a Nurse really is.  We hold your newspaper in high esteem and by this we expect correct information at all times.

Nursing is a noble profession and Nurses are well trained scientifically to identity complications at anytime.

By emphasis, let me briefly describe a Nurse; a Nurse is someone who having acquired minimum of five credits at GCE " O" level in Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics and English is then admitted into an accredited Basic School of Nursing or Department of Nursing in a University for 3 and 5 years respectively and obtain Registered Nurse certificate or Bachelor of Nursing Science degree. And both must be duly register and licensed by the Nursing and Midwifery council of Nigeria. A Nurse that is interested in establishing a Maternity Centre is equally expected to proceed for Midwifery training and be registered and licensed as a Midwife.

By this information we expected your title of the story to read FAKE/QUACK NURSE.

We want to passionately appeal to you to join us in waging war against quackery in Nursing profession. One of the dangers of quackery is what we are witnessing now.

I want to assure you that as Nurses we are committed to providing qualitative and Evidence Based Nursing Practice to the citizenry. Our goal is for our clients to attain, maintain or recover optimal health and quality of life.

Thanking you for your expected cooperation in the struggle to eradicate quackery in Nursing.

God bless you.
Comrade AWOJIDE, Olurotimi Julius
Chairman
Lagos Council, NANNM.
