Disturbed by the public’s criticisms of nurses’ attitude to work, the Assistant Director (Nursing), Ministry of Health, Lagos State, Mrs Dorcas Shonibare, has advised her colleagues to be disciplined and selfless.
She spoke at the mandatory Continuing Professional Development Programme for nurses at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), Ikeja organised by the Lagos State Nursing and Midwifery Committee.
Mrs Shonibare said the number of nurses in the state is an indication that they are important to health care.
She said the provision of adequate remuneration and welfare for them should be a motivation that must be reciprocated with positive attitudinal change, hard work and total commitment to duty.
She said the state government’s desire for a safe, affordable and qualitative health can only be achieved if nurses do their work.
Things, Shonibare said, are happening so fast in the sector. Nurses will do themselves a disfavour not to catch up with what is obtainable in their profession, she added.
Assistant Director, Nursing Services, Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), Mrs. Modupe Shode said, committed nurses would be rewarded, adding that there is dignity in labour and reward for hard work in the state.
