“It’s a great distress for qualified graduate nurses who completed training in November 2015 to stay at home as at this very day without employment. We hear different stories each and every day concerning our posting and this makes the future of our nursing career seem very uncertain, bearing in mind the four-year mandatory bond period,” the Coalition said in a letter written to the Health Ministry.

Below is the letter from the Group to the Health Ministry:

THE HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGER

MINISTRY OF HEALTH.

REQUEST FOR CLARIFICATION ON POSTING OF QUALIFIED NURSE ASSISTANT CLINICAL (2016)

The leadership of Coalition of Non-posted Nurses (CNN) request your clarification on the posting of Nurse Assistant Clinical who completed in November 2015 and had the results released in February 2016.

It’s a great distress for qualified graduate nurses who completed training in November 2015 to stay at home as at this very day without employment. We hear different stories each and every day concerning our posting and this makes the future of our nursing career seem very uncertain, bearing in mind the four-year mandatory bond period.

The question we keep asking ourselves is, ‘’for how long are we going to languish at home after satisfying all the necessary requirements?’’.

This very question, for which we have no answer to, have caused severe unrest among graduate unemployed nurses. Most of these graduates who seek temporal employment with the various private facilities have failed to secure any, since those facilities are not ready to work with staff that will surely terminate their appointments in no time.

We acknowledge the relentless efforts of your ministry in resolving issues concerning its stakeholders and therefore seek for clarification  on matters of our posting. Counting on you to ensure pragmatic solutions to our plight. Thank you.

REPRESENTING CNN
