Abubakar, who briefed journalists in Awka yesterday about the 15th Biennial Nursing Leaders’ Conference, which started in the Anambra State capital on Monday, said nurses trained in Nigeria provide the best nursing care anywhere in the world.
He also said poor scheme of service for nurses in the country aid brain drain among nurses from Nigeria.
This, coupled with the economic situation in the country make Nigerian nurses leave the country in droves, he added.
Besides, Abubakar said the country cannot absorb the number of nurses trained in the Nigeria, which he put at 11,000 yearly.
Speaking on the conference which has as its theme: “Repositioning Nursing and Midwifery Work Force for the Achievement of Universal Health Coverage and Sustainable Development Goals in Nigeria”, Abubakar said it would be a scientific session because “experts from within and outside Nigeria will deliver papers during the five-days it will last.”
According to him, the aim of the conference was to bring together nursing leaders in Nigeria to discuss current issues and developments that have implications for nursing education and practice.
It would also discuss the health needs of Nigerians and articulate ways forward in confronting the challenges of the nursing profession in Nigeria.
