Non-performing nursing trainees to be sacked

 The Upper East Regional Director of the Ghana Health Service (GHS), Dr. Emmanuel Kofi Dzotsi, has called on the management of health training institutions in the region to sack non-performing nursing trainees.

The call he said is to cleanse the health system of poorly trained nurses and midwives.

According to him, the situation where students were pushed through the system even though they could not pass their semester examinations was unacceptable.

He said any nurse or midwife trainee who could not make the required pass mark must not be considered.

He made this known when addressing nurses and midwives at the regional launch of the International Nurses Day celebration in Navrongo, and said human life was precious and must not be entrusted to the hands of people who were not serious during their training, but found their way out as nurses and midwives.

Dr. Dzotsi said "So, if they don't visit the hospitals, how can they gain practical experience...we need quality and well-trained nurses and midwives to care for the sick in this Region.

"We cannot compromise on quality."

Meanwhile, the Ghana Registered Nurses' and Midwives' Association (GRNMA) said it would be campaigning for "Emotional Allowance" due to the nature of its profession.

The Association, nurses, and midwives said they go through various stress and emotional challenges in their line of duties, therefore, if some workers are demanding neutrality allowances, they would also push for emotional allowance.
