Govt suspends Nurse Assistant Programmes

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) has announced the suspension of the Nurse Assistant (Clinical) and Nurse Assistant (Preventive) training programmes effective the 2019/2020 academic year.

The decision was taken in consultation with the Health Ministry.

A letter signed by the registrar of the NMC Felix Nyante said: “The Nursing and midwifery council of Ghana in consultation with the ministry of health would like to inform you that the training of nurse assistant (clinical) and nurse assistant (preventive) would be suspended effective 2019/2020 academic year.

“This follows the outcome of a desk review meeting held by the ministry, NMC, Ghana Health Service, CHAG, Teaching Hospitals and other stakeholders in respect of the health sector needs for this cadre of staff; the statistics show that there are adequate numbers of NAC/NAP practitioners for the health sector”.

The letter further disclosed the reduction of the quotas for admission of these programmes since last year.
