NANNM President statement on internship

Unread post by Kunle Emmanuel » Mon Jan 20, 2014 8:15 am

On Internship, the NANNM president had this to say:

The issue of internship became something so turbulent after we have taken over and that is why we have included it. In a manifesto and in leadership, when you are planning your programme, it is a 4 {four} years programme. You leave room for things that are emerging issues, internship is an emerging issue and I want to comment about one of our colleagues who wrote an open letter to me as the president of NANNM.

I want to beg your pardon that this is an attempt to contribute to the achievement of internship but most things in the write up are just hearsays. Because the individual is not informed about the level of things and the stages that the process involves, he believes that we are doing next to nothing about internship and I make bold to say that the issue of internship is an establishment matter and before internship is successful, the national council on establishment will have to sit on it and see these interns as part of the workforce of the health care industry and this is what we have been working on.

I am proud to inform you that the association put up a memo in seeking and defence of internship in Markurdi at the separate council levels 1, 2 and 3 last month and by the grace of God this memo was accepted and adjudged fit to be taken to the joint council and we have just arrived from the joint council in Benin where it was presented to a larger house of the public service joint negotiating council and I am happy to inform you that the memo seeking for the placement of internship and seeking approval for the internship apart from meeting in the federal ministry of health, apart from the letter written by the NUC, apart from pursuance of the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria has been put together by the National Association of Nigerian Nurses and Midwives under my leadership and this paper has successfully passed the hurdles to go to the national council on establishment.

The only prayer I am seeking from Nigerian nurses is for the success of this paper at the national council on establishment. If it has not passed through all these stages, all the protest, all the paper publications, all the open letters amounts to nothing but noise making but the rudiments of the process involved is understood by the national association especially where it pinches and these are the stages we are going through. I have had cause to address the prospective interns and I want to assure them that we will not leave any stone unturned. It is not a simple thing because it is an establishment matter and we are setting the pace, we are following the pace to ensure that the issue of internship scales all the hurdles that it entails for it to succeed

Nigerian Nurses lighting up the world one candle at a time.
