WHICH WAY FORWARD - GRADUATE NURSES WERE DISGRACED TODAY OUT OF THE SCREENING HALL AT UNIVERSITY OF BENIN FOR NOT HAVING RN AND RM
The Head of Nursing Department of the Hospital, was vehement on candidates having RN and RM and this is a pointer to the fact that the innate discrimination against this set of Nurses have eaten rather deep into the senses of some Nurses.
"We don't want people who will come to fight management for not properly placing them" This was the take of one of the senior Nurses involved in the screening.
But if they don't employ these "foot soldiers" as they implied graduate Nurses are, who would fight the very many anomalies the profession is facing? Who would help keep our profession safe from intruders and maligners? Who would remain firm in the face of adversity when the devourers appear from oblivion?
Someone said to them, "I have my BNSc. and RN", "You are single qualified" one of the senior Nurses replied.
The events that transpired today at University of Benin Teaching Hospital among Nurses and between Nurses, was pathetic, the sorry tale of a wounded soldier. The story of shooting oneself gun on the foot.
Which way forward dear colleagues?
