The Coalition of Unemployed Nurses and Midwives has registered its displeasure about the undue delay in the posting of its members to the various hospitals.

Spokesperson for the group, Nutakor Selassi Hilarry has said that “It is totally unacceptable when we have over 2,000 qualified health professionals sitting at home while the nurse to patient ratio in the country is 1:22 as compared to the WHO standard of 1:3.”

According to the aggrieved nurses, various petitions they have sent to the Ministry of Health over the years are yet to yield results.

They have therefore decided to petition President John Mahama on February 29, 2016 if the Health Minister does not respond immediately to their demands for postings.

The Coalition is a group of qualified but unemployed Registered General Nurses, Psychiatric Nurses, Midwives and Community Health Nurses who had completed their various training programmes and licensed by the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Ghana in March 2014 to practice in the country under a bond of at least five years after a mandatory National Service.

Every member of the coalition had completed their one year National Service since August 2015 but complain that they are yet to be employed by the government.
