President John Mahama has said that government is putting in place modalities to ensure that trainee nurses who had their allowances scrapped are placed on the Students's Loan Scheme.

In an interview on Radio Savannah to end his ‘Accounting to the people’ tour of the Northern region, the president said the move is to offer some amount of relief for the trainee nurses.

“We are coming up with some resolution for them. Health professional institutions have increased phenomenally, there are a lot of health assistant training schools, community health training schools, midwifery training schools and so we are looking at seeing how we can do some combination to be able to give them something that makes them able to go through their courses,” the president indicated.

He said a Committee has been set up to amend the law on the Student Loan Scheme so that the trainee nurses could also benefit from the scheme.

The Student Loan Scheme is currently restricted to tertiary institutions, thus many training schools which have not attained tertiary status are unable to benefit from the scheme.

However, the president said when the law is amended, “government will do a combination of some part of the allowance in loans and part given to them as stipends.”

The president added that the Committee report will be ready next week for the recommendations to be fully implemented.
