Nurses urged to be committed

NURSESActing Central Regional Director of Health Services, Dr Samuel Kwashie, on Tuesday said the directorate would ensure that disciplined, high performing and committed nurses were turned out from the various health training institutions in the region to enhance health care delivery.

According to him, health institutions would, therefore, not be allowed to become “safe havens for those who willfully provoke the long arm of the law”. Citing punitive measures taken against some offending students, he warned that students who engage in malpractices would be dismissed.

Dr Kwashie was speaking at the inauguration of Advisory Boards for five health training institutions in the region. They are the Nurses and Midwives Training College in Cape Coast, Ankaful Nurses Training College, Community Health Nurses Training College at Winneba and the Health Assistants Training Colleges at Twifo-Praso and Dunkwa-on-Offin.

The five boards made up of seven-members each, comprise a representative of the Regional Coordinating Council, Regional Health Directorate, Traditional Council, Ministry of education, the community, a religious body and an official of the institution.

They are to advice the principals of their assigned institutions on management and governance, support them to mobilize extra resources and assist in the maintenance of discipline. Dr Kwashie said in pursuant of that, the directorate had empowered the principals of the institutions to ensure discipline and facilitate the production of nurses who would promote corporate vision and image of the health service.
