Nigerian Nurses under the aegis of the National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives, Lagos chapter, on Monday, protested against the federal government’s new verification certification guideline.
WesternPost reports that the new guideline was released by the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria.
The nurses described the new guideline as an attempt to hinder their freedom to pursue career opportunities, asking the council to address nurses’ welfare, salary scale, shortage of staff, and other rights.
Nurses and midwives in the country had earlier in the week lamented the deactivation of the NMCN verification portal since December 2023.
In 2023, the NANNM said over 75,000 nurses and midwives left the country in five years to seek greener pastures.
