“Our continues stay at home is more harmful and can lead to more harm if we find ourselves in the facilities some day after staying longer without practicing”

According to them, regardless of the promise by H.E president Nana Addo, they are still left unemployed.

They said government’s silence on their postings have ignited anxiety, frustration, and suffering among them.

They revealed that the 2016 batch of the Nurse Assistant Clinical (NAC) and the Nurse Assistant Preventive(NAP) have over total population of over six thousand graduates.

Some of the aggrieved graduates at a press conference said they are not happy staying in the house for a decade without been posted to the various health institutions.
