Comfort Terngu Abaa Always my take,why ask a student to cut grass in the name of punishment. During my days our punishment was extra night duty,and we learnt a lot during this times. We are teaching our young ones to have low self esteem. We are our own problem. Stop schools of nursing and midwifery, train direct into the university and see who will dare you. Nurses wake up.
Sagir NuhuSagir I learned how egocentric the NMA & its members are, how our politicians are dumbfounded in knowing the worthy of other health workers, they value only Drs, even Scholarship is for MBBS.
I also learned that we need to study further up to Masters & PhD level.
Nurses should protect one another, see themselves as Brothers keepers.
Olufemi Iseyemi Folakemi Yes, too many divisions.
Taibat Shuaib Balogun Little by little we will reach that stage wit God ,s power.
Abiola Olayinka Ogunlewe I have learnt that the doctors are not our friends, stop covering up for them, every man for himself
Adaobi Nnadozie Onyemenah From the strike, I have come to realize we are not in power. Nurses needs to start assuming political position so the we can be heard.
Micah Bognet Mathew NANNM representative(s) in JOHESU don't want to present proper placement for nurses for reasons best known to them. JOHESU is using us!. Why should a Pharmacist, Lab Scientist etc be placed above nurses who also spend 5years in the University? WHY WHY WHY
There is need for EQUITY in JOHESU too
Bola Ajepe Jolaogun Thank you very much sir, this the point let nurses pull out of johesu and fight for our right and position, nobody will do that for us except us. There should be equity in johesu. Nurses alone can hold this country into ransom
Micah Bognet Mathew We have NANNM representatives in JOHESU and I keep wondering why they are mute about it
Akinsanya Balogun Iyabode I believe the future is brighter for nursing profession with more people acquiring more educational qualifications, knowledge is power. We can only aspire for higher political post and executive with education. We wil get there.am proud to a nurse always.

I learnt that our core procedures stylishly being taken away from us under the pretence of hospital policies masterminded by almighty doctors to relegate the nurses and leave us with the urinal and bedpan. This is to prove to the world and Nigerians that they do every skilled procedures in the hospital and earn public respect. Why will public respect nurses who only come to the hospital to carry bedpan and urinal, make beds, chase visitors away, write meal ticket, collect receipt before ward admission (other people's jobs). It is high time we took back our hijacked procedures, disobey hospital policies that prevent us from performing our roles as nurses. Be ready to face the hospital management and challenge the authority in cases of intimidation. As for me, I'm determined to start doing all these in earnest on the wards and turn a
deaf ear to any Superior that will want to stop. Laziness and loss of interest on our part majorly. Nurses wake up.
Idia Kasum I like that boldness is what we need.
Idia Kasum until we start taking actions
Idia Kasum To my surprise somebody from the outside asked me, why the doctors allowed us to go on strike and I was like wao! I sat her down and made her understand that doctors are no nurses employers in a government hospital, that, we are all employed by the govnt and each one of us have different role to play on a patient. I let her know that I can open a maternity home or clinic and employ a doctor. My explanations cleared her mind. This made me go along with what Tara submitted, that we made ourselves to be irrelevant by calling doc for any little procedure which we can carry out successfully before calling the attention of the doctor, all you need do is to explain why you do that and the benefit to the patient, I know, no right minded individual will penalised you for that. We have big role to play to redeemed our image. This strike should be an eye opener to all nurses, we need to come together despite your qualifications in nursing to right the wrong in nursing. By and large I am not happy that the strike is off without achieving anything.
Olagunju Taiwo Bolatito I now know that basic n post basic nursing school is our problem
Kunle Emmanuel Those school of nursing this thing should stop. It is obsolete.
Alhassan Lurwan Very bad at last we lost the game they achieved what they want to achieve but nest time it will not be proper like this becarefull.
I learnt that doctors are united and value one another.Thats y they were able able to sabotage the strike plus they av power and position which we lack.Let nurse start from loving themselves and having the interest of one another at heart.A lot of nurses don't like tbemselves.Theybcan do anything to pull one down and even boast about it.We really av a long way to go as nurses.Reason why I doubt if we can stay out of Johesu as some people r suggesting because nurses will leave the important things they will fight for and start fighting themselves,something they are well known for.I rest my case.
Oliobi Oranwa Nkem Felicity They will start fighting for caps and designers black shoe.... very annoying
Oliobi Oranwa Nkem Felicity One CNO told me that she will take my day off if I wear designed black shoe to work again... just imagine!
Iheanacho Gold N
I increased my knowledge in the aspect of nursing not being appreciated in Nigeria, so I SHOULD WORK HARD AND MOVE OUT OF HERE AND PRACTICE ABROAD. Yea!
Secondly, NANNM has got a lot to do.
Thirdly, I got some rest during the strike.
LASTLY, WHETHER NIGERIANS VALUE YOU OR NOT, DO YOUR JOB RIGHTLY AND YOUR WORK WILL SPEAK FOR YOU SOMEDAY.
Stella Peter Gold nwanyi nurse. It shall soon be well. All hands must be on deck to make it work. Work without faith...Nigerian nurses must arrive...
What do you expect in a country like Nigeria, when even the Senate president is a doctor, minister of health and other key position under health.
Nurses and Midwives need to be United, lack of confidence and low self esteem is killing the nursing profession, the change have to start from nursing and midwifery schools, the much punishment given to the students sometime make them to develop low self esteem, is as if Nurses don't have right , Nurses need to wake up on every side both political and in other aspects.
