* News / #JOHESUStrike2018: We Remain Resolute Despite Withheld Salary – NANNM President by katty: May 14, 2018, 02:38:25 PM
The National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives (NANNM), has condemned strongly, the enforcement of the  ‘no work no pay’ policy by the federal government on the striking health workers.
 
President of NANNM,  Comrade Abdrafiu Adeniji, who made this known while briefing journalists at the end of the 2018 nurses and midwives week, held in Abuja, reaffirmed the association’s commitment to the Joint Health Sector Union (JOHESU) struggle.
 
He said that the  April salary of JOHESU members, in  which NANNM is part of, is being withheld, even though they had worked dutifully until early hours of 18th April, 2018.
 
“According to all regulations, the ‘no work no pay’ is only applicable when an illegal strike is embarked on. An illegal strike means a strike embarked upon without notice to government. The situation we have at hand is for the federal government to look into what it signed and implement the agreement,” he explained.
 
Recall that the federal government, in a letter  written and signed by the Head, Department of Hospital Services, Dr. J.O Amedu for the Minister of Health, had directed the enforcement of the ‘no work no pay’ policy, in line with provision of Section 43 of the Trade Dispute Act CAP 18, Law of the Federation of Nigeria(LFN), 2004.
 
Adeniji also accused the Federal Ministry of Health of employing measures targeted at frustrating and humiliating the union members rather than simply implementing agreement entered into with JOHESU and obey court order. He lamented that while other countries are counting their gains and achievements towards attaining universal health coverage, the Nigeria government was doing the opposite.
 
He therefore urged the federal government to accede to the demand of health workers without any further delay.

* News / Nigerian Nurses, Midwives Kick Against Propose Privatisation Of Health Service by katty: May 14, 2018, 02:35:10 PM
The National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives NANNM has warned that the ongoing strike by the Joint Health Sector Unions JOHESU will not end, if government continues its lackadaisical attitude towards the union’s demands.
 
It said government has the wherewithal to end the strike.
 
Briefing journalists, yesterday, in Abuja, NANNM President, Adeniji Abdulrafiu Ajani, said the strike became inevitable because of government’s insensitive position, urging it to immediately attend to the workers’ demands.
 
He noted that Universal Health Coverage will remain a mirage, if nurses and midwives are not given due recognition and remuneration.
 
He kicked against the planned privatisation of some healthcare services, saying any type of privatisation that will put healthcare services beyond the reach of ordinary Nigerians will not be accepted.

* Articles / The Future Of The Nursing Profession in Nigeria By Kareem Oluwagbemiga Light by katty: May 14, 2018, 02:33:04 PM
The future of nursing profession is focused on Education. Nurses with doctorate degrees are needed to teach the future generation of nurses and to conduct research that will become the basis for improvement in nursing science and practice. To meet health cares growing demand,  nurses must be competent in several disciplines such as Leadership, system improvement, research and public health. NURSING is also expanding into technology and information management roles.
 
But it's quite unfortunate that Nigerian nurses are not advancing in education at all, the moment they have gotten a license to practice as a registered nurse(RN ) that is the end of the road in Nursing education. Nigeria Nurses are not longer engaging in research work, seminars or even in pursuit of their bachelor in Nursing science(BNS) or even Masters not to talk of PHD in nursing. And this is what is killing Nurses in the country as a whole, instead of acquiring more knowledge we prefer turning ourselves as slaves in the hand of  Doctors.
 
Importance Of Education In Nursing.

 
Because nursing is one of the many profession that is changing rapidly in terms of complexities and technologies .
 
1. With improved health literacy, people are living longer than ever before. Currently, the average Australian life expectancy is around 80years but with greater longevity comes more complex health concerns. This makes providing the Nursing care more challenging and means it is ever more important to be well educated as a Nurse.
 
2. Education and understanding best practise care delivery is more than numbers earned each year. It's a commitment to be a professional. Keeping up-to-date and continuously seeking to improve and ultimately to provide individuals with the best care.
 
Nurses should arise up to these clamour call, to fight for the new generation of Nurses. To improve on their educational standard as we together make NURSING great not only in Nigeria but to other part of the world.
      Thanks

* Nursing Jobs / Internship vacancy at Federal Teaching Hospital Abakaliki by Sansa: May 14, 2018, 02:11:41 PM

* News / Jobless Foreign Nurses 'stuck' in Namibia over Certificate of Good Standing by katty: May 14, 2018, 01:34:51 PM
THE non-existence of a nursing council in Namibia is making it impossible for more than 32 jobless foreign nurses to apply for jobs overseas because they cannot get certificates of good standing from the government.
The 32 foreign nurses of different nationalities have applied for certificates of good standing after 31 March when their contracts with the ministry of health were not renewed.

The ministry last year announced that it would not need the services of foreign nurses any longer or renew their contracts, particularly those who have reached the retirement age of 60, in order to provide opportunities for Namibian graduate nurses.

Since then, many foreign nurses have been scrambling to apply for jobs overseas, but are unable to leave the country because the Health Professions Council of Namibia (HPCNA) is delaying issuing them with good standing certificates required to apply for jobs elsewhere.

“I'm begging the Namibian government to issue us with our certificates so that we can leave this country and get jobs esewhere. As it is now, we are stuck here in Namibia without work,” said a foreign nurse, who declined to be named.

A good standing certificate is required by a prospective employer when applying for employment elsewhere. Registrar and chief executive officer at the HPCNA, Cornelius Weyulu on Friday said what is normally issued by the Nursing Council of Namibia to nurses, on application and as per the stipulations of the Nursing Act of 2004, is the certificate of good standing in which the professional credentials of an applicant are indicated.

He explained that the term of office of the previous members of the nursing council came to an end on 31 March 2018, and no new nursing council has been constituted to date. The nursing council under the HPCNA is mandated to issue certificates of good standing to nurses in the country.

“We are, however, aware that the Minister of Health and Social Services is seized with the matter, and hopefully a new nursing council will be constituted soon,” he said.

He said this would mean all nurses, whether foreign or Namibian, who applied for the certificate of good standing from the Nursing Council of Namibia after 31 March 2018, were not given such certificates simply because there is no nursing council in place to issue them as required by the Nursing Act.

He further explained that the reason for not issuing certificates of good standing to the applicants concerned has nothing to do with the fact that they are foreigners. “Even Namibians are not issued with such certificates for now,” he said.

Meanwhile, foreign nurses whose contracts have not been renewed say they face a bleak future because they cannot apply for jobs anywhere.

“The only thing standing between me and leaving this country is the certificate of good standing,” said a Zambian nurse, who is based at a hospital at Oshakati, and who also declined to be named.

She said she came to Namibia in 2012 with her family when the country was in desperate need of nurses, and has been working at that hospital since then.

Her contract with government ended recently, and has also not been renewed.

“I applied for a nursing job at a company in the United Kingdom, but they cannot employ me without the verification letter (certificate),” said the nurse, who burst into tears as she spoke of how she is desperate to leave Namibia and start afresh in another country.

“I respect the fact that the Namibian government wants to employ its own people. All I am asking for is that they give me my papers to enable me to get employment in another country,” she stressed.

Another nurse, who is also based in the north, said she applied for her certificate to go and work overseas two months ago, and has been making follow-ups with the responsible person at the HPCNA.
“Each time, she would say my papers are not done yet. I then called again, only to be told that the HPCNA is not processing verification letters at the moment,” she continued.

“I think this is very cruel and heartless, considering the fact that I am not employed anymore. I have children and parents that l have to take care of. Please, let us consider the fact that our contracts were not renewed. This is inhuman because I have to earn a living, and the HPCNA and the ministry are sitting on my papers,” charged the nurse.

The ministry of health's acting permanent secretary, Petronella Masabane, declined to comment, and referred all questions to the HPCNA.

* News / NANNM Calls on Stakeholders to Curb Quackery in Nursing by katty: May 14, 2018, 01:26:12 PM
The National Association of Nigerian Nurses and Midwives (NANNM) has called for concerted efforts by stakeholders to curb the menace of quackery in the profession.

The president of the association, Mr Abdulrafiu Adeniji, made the call at a news conference to mark the end of the commemoration of the International Nurses Week and the International Day of Midwives on Sunday in Abuja.



The International Nurses Week is an annual event commemorated from May 6 to May 12 and this year’s event has “Nurses: A Leading Voice: Health is A Human Right” as its theme.

The International Day of Midwives is commemorated on May 5 and has as its 2018 theme “Midwives: Leading with Quality Care”.


Adeniji identified quackery, mismanagement, insecurity, poor remuneration, inattention to the plight of nurses and other health workers as major challenges bedevilling the profession, thereby hindering the goal of providing quality care for citizens.

He said even though there were challenges, the menace of quackery could create huge danger to the healthcare system which was  deadlier than effects of viral haemorrhagic fever combined.

He, therefore, noted that “the fight against quackery should not be left for professionals alone”.

“Stakeholders and indeed the entire society must join hands with practitioners to tackle the menace.

“All hands must be on deck to deal with the problem, just the way we fought the scourge of Ebola disease and Lassa fever.

* News / Zimbabwe: Dismissals will not affect nurses’ benefits, says Parirenyatwa by katty: May 14, 2018, 10:26:05 AM
GOVERNMENT says the recent sacking and readmission of striking nurses has not affected their benefits and other conditions of service amid reports of rampant victimisation of junior members of the clinical staff by their bosses.

Some 6,000 nursing staff were summarily sacked for ignoring government pleas to return to work following their recent strike over poor wages and conditions of service.

Government immediately ordered their replacement while those who were still interested were asked to reapply but this was abruptly stopped when nurses quickly resumed work to save their jobs.

However, most formal job dismissals often affect one’s benefits, an action which Health and Child Care Minister David Parirenyatwa said will not be targeted at nurses.

He was speaking while responding to questions by Senators on Thursday.
 
“I would want to clarify that when nurses were dismissed, those who were dismissed were then also requested if they want to come back to work and we immediately asked them to resume duty.

“What that meant was that their conditions of service had not been disturbed. In other words, there was that continuum because they resumed duty. We did not penalise them so to speak. What just happened is, we said sign your form to resume duty and they resumed duty,” he said.

It has emerged that the dismissals have opened an avenue among vindictive hospital bosses to settle scores with their junior staff with reports that names of some of those who did not join the strike were included in the list of nurses whose employment was terminated.

Parirenyatwa confirmed the reports, adding that officials from his ministry have since been assigned to investigate the misdemeanors.

“We are aware that there are a lot of accusations and counter accusations,” Parirenyatwa said.

“That is why my teams are on the ground to find out from the Provincial Medical Directors, the Provincial Nursing Officers and the Senior Tutors in hospitals what really happened and this investigation is taking place.

“We know there are accusations and counter accusations. Some are actually saying ‘you came to work and they are saying we did not come’. There are all these counter accusations and we need to put that into perspective. In the meantime, service delivery is continuing and we are pleased with that.”
