Ghana's Health Minister, Alex Segbefia has asked unemployed private nurses to exercise patience as government goes through the necessary processes to have them employed.

He made this known last week after a meeting with some privately trained nurses at the Ministry.

More than 2,000 privately trained nurses last week threatened to picket at the Flagstaff house should government fail to employ them.

According to the aggrieved nurses, even though the national posting forms were opened to all publicly and privately trained nurses who sat the national licensing examination under the auspices of the Ministry of Health (MoH), for more than three years now no single privately trained nurse had been absorbed into the public sector.

They added that the teaching hospitals and the Christian Health Association of Ghana (CHAG) have also refused to employ them.

But, the Health Minister has assured the nurses that processes are due to have them posted to work.

He said demonstrations and picketing are not the solution to the problems, adding that he is operating an open-door-policy and expects any person with any difficulty to come to his office for a discussion of the issue.

Mr Segbefia added that his ministry is in the process of requesting for a list of qualified nurses from the Nursing And Midwifery Council (NMC) to enable it seek financial clearance for all.
