The nurses held placards with inscriptions "A hungry nurse is a potential killer," "We are tired of staying home" and "evidence bases nurses and midwives demonstration" among others.
Clad in training uniforms and red bands, the nurses went on their knees to ask God to touch the hearts of authorities so that their petition will be addressed before the demonstration started.
The aggrieved nurses petitioned the office of the president for financial clearance from Finance Ministry.
Their petition was received by the Health Ministry on behalf of the President.
President of Ghana Registered Nurses Association, Krobea Asante, told Asempa Fm that government is deliberately refusing to engage the unemployed nurses.
He described the situation as frustrating and disappointing, calling on government to walk the talk.
Asante added government by its action is infringing on the rights of the unemployed nurses.
But The Ministry of Health's public relations officer, Tony Godman, criticised the nurses, accusing them of refusing to submit "instructions and procedures for employment."
