Young and Innovative Nurses Network Appeals to FG to Call NMCN to Order by katty : November 16, 2018, 08:46:29 AM
The Young and Innovative Nurses Network has appealed to the Nigerian government to halt the new verification fees regime introduced by the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria.

In a post obtained by, the body wondered why the regulatory board who looked the other way when issues that would positively affect development of Nursing profession in Nigeria are tabled will find it so swift to implement increased verification fee at a time when Nigerian nurses earn peanuts. Below is a copy of the post:

Appeal to the Federal Government Of Nigeria under the leadership of President Buhari through the Minister of health  to call Nursing and Midwifery council of Nigeria to order

We hereby appeal to President Buhari to take a look at the hardship one of its parastatal under the Ministry of health is causing on Nigerians.

The sudden increase in the verification fees is uncalled for. There are many changes that the Nursing and Midwifery council of Nigeria should have made over a decade ago but they are sluggish and reluctant. Why then will they want to create more hardship for nurses by increasing fees every here and there.

Below are things nurses would expect their council to resolve;
*They have refused to upgrade school of nursing to colleges affilated to a university.

*They have refused to create a Nursing assistant cadre that can serve to eradicate quackery in nursing

*They have refused to upgrade the curriculum of nursing in the university for creation of consultancy cadre.

*They have refused to create a means by which licenses are produced faster than the current long awaiting period.

*They have refused to look into the scam of MCPDP and the cost on nurses.

We cannot allow this heinous increment not even at this time that minimum wage has become a problem in all states of the federation. It is high time we wake up in this profession and challenge insensitive leadership from all angles.


Share this untill it gets to the right place.
