Nurs­ing pro­fes­sion­als seek im­proved work­ing con­di­tion

Daily Trust - - LABOUR - From Ab­dul­la­teef Aliyu, Ilorin

The Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Nige­rian Nurses and Mid­wifery has ap­pealed to the Head of Civil Ser­vice of the Fed­er­a­tion to re­view the con­di­tion of ser­vice of nurs­ing pro­fes­sion­als in the coun­try.

Pres­i­dent of the as­so­ci­a­tion Com­rade Adeniyi Ab­dul­Rafiu stated this when he led ex­ec­u­tive mem­bers of the as­so­ci­a­tion on a cour­tesy call to the Kwara State Head of Ser­vice, Al­haji Dabarako Mo­hammed.

Ab­dul­Rafiu said the im­prove­ment on con­di­tion of ser­vice of nurses would en­able them meet the stan­dard of their coun­ter­parts in other sec­tors, just as he urged the Head of Ser­vice to pass their mes­sage to the Head of Civil Ser­vice of the Fed­er­a­tion.

He urged the govern­ment to con­sider the scheme of ser­vice as re­gards nurs­ing of­fi­cers’ cadres in terms of rights and priv­i­leges of the pro­fes­sion.

While say­ing that in­tern­ship for nurs­ing of­fi­cers should be re­garded as very cru­cial in the Nurs­ing pro­fes­sion, he as­sured Mo­hammed that Nurses and Mid­wives in Kwara are ready to work with the govern­ment.

In his re­marks, the Head of Ser­vice charged mem­bers of the as­so­ci­a­tion to ob­tain rel­e­vant qual­i­fi­ca­tion be­fore prac­tic­ing the pro­fes­sion, ad­vis­ing that in­stead of blam­ing the Head of Ser­vice of the Fed­er­a­tion over is­sues af­fect­ing their mem­bers, the as­so­ci­a­tion should en­cour­age mem­bers to ac­quire the right qual­i­fi­ca­tion.
