While the Ministry of Health has announced that processes are underway to secure financial clearance for unemployed nurses and midwives from the 2020 to 2022 batches, the affected graduates remain skeptical and are demanding specific timelines for their employment.

Expressing their frustration, the graduate unemployed trainee nurses and midwives have lamented what they perceive as the government’s neglect in offering them clearance and permanent employment. The backlog includes graduates from the years 2020, 2021, and 2022, all of whom have successfully passed their Nursing and Midwifery Council Licensing exam but are yet to receive clearance for employment.

In response to the Ministry’s assurance, the nurses and midwives are insisting on clarity regarding the timeline for their engagement. With skills decay becoming a growing concern as they remain idle at home, some are considering picketing at the Ministry of Health this week to draw attention to their plight.

Isaac Ofe Baah, the Public Relations Officer of the Ministry of Health, acknowledged the concerns of the nurses and midwives, urging them to exercise patience while assuring them that efforts are being made to address their grievances. He stated, “The Ministry is working hard to ensure their concerns are addressed. The Chief Director has even scheduled a meeting with the Finance Ministry, so we are working on it.”

However, despite these assurances, the group remains adamant about the need for clear timelines to alleviate their uncertainty and provide them with a sense of direction regarding their employment prospects.

As the standoff continues between the Ministry of Health and the unemployed nurses and midwives, all eyes are on the government to provide concrete answers and solutions to resolve this pressing issue in the healthcare sector.
