Good evening Idowu and thanks so much for the good work you are doing. Inspired by Royalty thread, I started my USA registration journey. Although I haven't gone far as I'm still expecting my cgfns ces report but here are few of the things I have done.
1. Started cgfns ces report for Texas Board of Nursing last year April and expecting my ces report any moment from now.
2. Ordered for FBI fingerprints card and already in transit back to USA after fingerprinting and police report
3. Applied to the Texas Board of Nursing just last week.

By tomorrow I'm going to give details of these steps so far including the cost analysis. I'm a self applicant based in Nigeria.

Thanks so much once again Pecu

* News / India Nurses Stage Strike over ill treatment of a Nurse by a Doctor by katty: February 15, 2018, 12:13:07 PM
Over 200 nurses boycotted duties for the better part of the day on Wednesday to protest against the alleged ill-treatment of a nurse by a doctor at the state-run Gandhi Hospital. This protest affected patient services.

The incident took place late on Tuesday night at the Pulmonology ward, when a PG doctor allegedly verbally lashed out at duty nurse Renuka for not attending to her duties properly.

By Wednesday morning, a huge group of nurses launched a massive protest in front of the hospital's administrative building, demanding that the doctor apologise to them.

The boycott continued for four hours, delaying three scheduled surgeries. Many patients faced hardships due to the absence of nurses.

"Usually duty nurses administer injections to admitted patients. But today (Wednesday) many people had to wait for three hours for their injections and for having IV drips changed," said an insider.

"Every time there is an issue, doctors tend to blame contract nurses. We work very hard and even take on extra work, changing IVs apart from attending to patients. This kind of behaviour lowers the morale of nurses," said a nurse.

Hospital authorities later intervened and the doctor was summoned by superintendent Dr P Shravan Kumar to tender an apology. He apologised to the hospital superintendent and other senior authorities, before wrapping up his night shift on Wednesday morning.
However, agitating nurses wanted him to return and apologise at the protest site to the nurse he had abused, leading to a stalemate. "The issue was resolved amicably between both the parties," said Kumar.

* News / Ghana : Ankaful nurses declare another strike over director’s conductNurses and by katty: February 15, 2018, 09:30:39 AM
Nurses and physician assistants at the Ankaful Psychiatric Hospital have proceeded to lay down their tools to protest the conduct of the facility’s Medical Director, Dr. Emmanuel Dordoye.

According to them, Dr. Dordoye’s presence at the facility posed a danger to their mental and physical health.

The spokesperson of the Ankaful Psychiatric nurse’s group, Emmanuel Ofori, explained to Citi News that the nurses will resume work only after their director has been sacked.

“Dr. Eugene Dordoye’s presence in the hospital is a psychological stress to us. So we are notifying our immediate supervisor, who is the of the Health Authority CEO to take action. The nurses are not coming back to work until the hospital’s director is removed,” Emmanuel Ofori said.

In 2017, the medical practitioners embarked on a similar action after they gave the government a 3-day ultimatum to fire Dr. Dordoye.

The nurses complained of gross disrespect of staff and mismanagement of the hospital by Dr. Dordoye.

“We are emotionally and psychologically breaking down and we do not have peace of mind to care for our patients. We need peace and sound mind to care for our patients. The Accra people have a saying that ‘when the frog comes out of the water and says the crocodile is dead, you don’t challenge him’. In the same vein, when the psychiatric health workers who provide care to the mentally challenged say they are psychologically and emotionally breaking down, don’t condemn them, take them seriously,” a Deputy Public Relations Officer of the Psychiatric Nurses’ Group, Benjamin Anewotey, told Citi News at the time.

Dr. Dordoye however in a letter to the hospital staff apologized for his approach in trying to reform the hospital and pledged to improve on his management of the facility.

“I apologize unreservedly to all staff of Ankaful psychiatric hospital who have been hurt by my approach, the CEO, MHA [Mental Health Authority], Central Regional Minister, Health Minister and all others affected and I will surely improve and manage the change better than I have done in the past going forward,” he said.

But the hospital staff, who say they have not seen any improvement in the director’s conduct, are calling on the Health Ministry to immediately remove him before they resume work.

* News / First Batch of Oncology Nurses from Aga Khan University Graduate in Kenya by katty: February 14, 2018, 09:37:34 PM
The first batch of nurses specialising in the care and treatment of cancer patients from the Aga Khan University (AKU) graduated on Wednesday.

Speaking at the 14th graduation ceremony in Nairobi, the university’s president, Mr Firoz Rasul, said the rising cases of cancer in the country necessitated the creation of a curriculum specifically for nurses handling such patients.

According to Dr Eunice Ndirangu, the head of academics at the school of nursing and midwifery, the oncology course is one of a kind in the country and is only offered at AKU and Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital.

A total of 80 students of AKU graduated.

“The students who just graduated were selected mainly through the support of their counties and their medical service providers who saw the very high need for more specialised skills and knowledge in oncology nursing and palliative care,” Sharon Brownie, the School of Nursing and Midwifery dean, said.

Johnson and Johnson Corporate Citizenship Trust will sponsor the course making it possible for more students to be trained in the next class.

The valedictorian of this year’s ceremony was a graduand of the higher diploma in oncology nursing course.

Ms Immaculate Wambugu, a nurse, said her next step will be to develop a similar course, where she can train other nurses.

“My employer sponsored my studies, and they allowed me to be out of work for two days a week,” she said.

* News / Senator Ajayi Boroffice Donates Hospital to Ọkà Àkókò in Ondo State by katty: February 14, 2018, 09:22:26 PM
As  part of efforts to enhance the well-being of his constituents, the Senator representing Ondo North Senatorial District in the Senate, Prof. Ajayi Boroffice has donated a 24-bed obstetric hospital to his home town, Oka Akoko in Akoko South/West Local Government Area.

Boroffice, who is the Chairman, Senate Committee on Science and Technology, said the need to provide adequate health care for his people motivated him to carry out the project which was one of the projects he intends to execute.

He said: “My constituency needs facilities for health delivery, more so as health is one of the aims of the Millennium Development Goals.

“Though it is called obstetric care hospital, it also has a maternity facility,” he said.

Some features of the obstetric centre include operating theatre, delivery room, antenatal ward; doctors’ consulting rooms, nurses residential quarters and electric-motorised wheel chairs.

It also has pharmacy department, medical records department, waiting room for patients, 24-hour solar-powered electricity, solar-driven borehole for potable water, even as all rooms and offices have air-conditioners.

The Senator said the project would be handed over to the Federal Medical Centre (FMC) Owo for optimal use.

According to him, the centre will later be expanded when more doctors are available.

He promised to make financial provisions for the health centre his priority, saying he would not abandon it.

In his remarks, a member representing Akoko Southeast/Southwest Federal Constituency in the National Assembly, Babatunde Kolawole said the project is commendable.

Kolawole noted that the centre would bring medical care to the doorsteps of residents of the constituency unlike before when they had to travel to Owo to access health care.

He said the facility would also reduce the risk associated with travelling to a far place to receive medical treatment.

The Olubaka of Oka-Akoko, Oba Adebori Adeleye noted that the project would have positive impact in the lives of members of the constituency, saying it was people-oriented.

The monarch said: “This is better than when politicians give out money. I urge you to make judicious use of the facility. I also encourage Senator Boroffice not to relent in his efforts to make life significant for members of his constituency.

Earlier, the Acting Head of Clinical Services, FMC, Owo, Dr Kunle Adesokan said the Senator had brought quality tertiary health care to members of the constituency.

Adesokan said FMC Owo would ensure availability of skilled personnel at the centre.

He called for provision of facilities and equipment needed for basic surgical and obstetric procedures and the ability to make diagnostic test and enhance medical and paediatric consultations.

According to him, there must be plan for maintenance of the equipment, even as he said the facilities would be expanded and upgraded.

Dr Adesokan expressed his optimism that if the seed of the project is well watered and nurtured, it would blossom and be beneficial for all and sundry.

The Chairman of the project committee, Alfred Omosola said the project was just a tip of the iceberg when compared with other ones facilitated by the Senator in the constituency.

Some of the projects, Omosola said, include Biofuel Ethanol Plant, Ajowa, the Incubation Centre, Iwaro Oka and skill acquisition centre, Oka, among others.

He said the health care facility was another landmark achievement of Senator Boroffice for his constituents.

The Chairman, Akoko Consultative Forum (ACF) in Akoko Northwest Local Government Area, Mr. Christopher Olorunfemi, described the project as a good development, saying it would enhance the health status of the citizens.
