About a month ago, there were controversies when Nigerian Nurses got hold of the documents and logbook meant for Nursing assistants training program by the Lagos state Government, this led to an emergency press conference jointly organised by the Nurses on Air, National Association Of Nigerian Nurses And Midwives, Lagos state chapter.

 

At the end of the press conference,  Lagos state government was given 30days ultimatum with effect from 11th March 2018 to put a hold on the training or face total industrial action as the Nursing and Midwifery council of Nigeria has the sole responsibility of training all categories of Nurses.

 

In his words, the President, National Association Of Nigerian Nurses And Midwives, Lagos state chapter, Comrade Awojide reiterated that the planned strike action has been put on hold.

 

The Lagos State Employment Trust Fund executives met with State NANNM just few days after the press conference.

NANNM reemphasized the fact that only the regulatory body, NMCN can engaged in such training or give approval. 

 

They apologized and promised to develop another program that will be exclusive of Nursing care.

 

The Honourable Commissioner for Health also wrote NANNM to inform us that the ministry is looking into the matter. 

 

Reports state that the Lagos State Director of Nursing at the ministry is equally on top of the matter.
