The Ghana Health Service has said that from Wednesday, February 27, 2019, it would begin recruitment of unemployed nurses who completed training in 2016.
The Service said nurses who fall within the category are expected to log on to its online recruitment portal to apply when the portal is opened on Wednesday.
The Ghana Health Service announced this in a statement issued and signed by the Director of the Ghana Health Service, Dr Anthony Nsiah Asare on Monday, February 25, 2019.
There has been controversy over the president’s claim that the government had given financial clearance for the employment of 14,000 graduate nurses and some 11,018 health personnel.
While delivering the 2019 State of the Nation Address last Thursday (February 21, 2019), President Akufo-Addo said government had recruited the over 14,000 graduate nurses who subsequently commenced work on February 1, 2019.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that, some unemployed nurses chastised President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, for saying the government had granted financial clearance and recruited more than 14,000 graduate nurses who completed their training in 2016.
Akufo-Addo said to augment the efforts of clinical staff, in September 2018, the Ministry of Health received further financial clearance to employ fourteen thousand, five hundred and twenty-four (14,254) Nurse Assistants (Clinical and Preventive).
These nurse assistants, he said, belonged to the tranche of nurses that passed their exams in 2016 from government health training institutions and have commenced work by February 1, 2019.
The unemployed nurses said they were still at home waiting on the government to give them their job posting.
