The deputy minister of health, Tina Mensah, has cautioned trained nurses against high expectations from government.
A Mynewsgh.com report shows that she explained that the government is under no obligation to employ nurses once they graduate from school.
In an interview on Starr FM, she added that the nurses need to conduct themselves professionally as the government employs some of them as 'favours'.

For that reason, she went on, they should not think of giving the government pressure to get them jobs.
She was reacting to news that the Coalition of Unemployed Private Nurses (CUPN) threatening to hit the streets over the government’s inability to offer them employment.
The coalition maintains that its members deserve to be employed into the mainstream health sector, just like other state-trained nurses.
Mensah went ahead to say that all ministries source their funds from the ministry of finance, and for that reason, the health ministry can only oversee the employment of nurses if there are vacancies.
