The university of Nigeria teaching hospital enugu recently placed an advert on October 3 2013 for the following INTERNSHIP positions: Pharmacy interns (conhess 08), Radiography intern Officers 11 (conhess 07), Medical laboratory Scientists intern (conhess 07), Nutrition and dietetics intern officers (conhess 07), and lastly physiotherapy interns on conhess 08.
Even Dental therapy and Dental technology officers who graduated with a higher national diploma in dental technology and hygiene are invited to apply for an internship position and even placed on CONHESS 07,
Nursing is obviously missing from this advert!
is there any hope in sight for Nursing internship?
Unfortunately, there is never any update from those who are leading the struggle to actualize this. The leadership of NANNM, the nursing and midwifery counil are not internet savy and hence cant boast of leveraging on the internet age to effectively disseminate and convey information to teeming nurses who are keen on contributing to this struggle.
The NUNSA body can only work within thier means as students and thus need the support of Registered nurses in and out of nigeria to fight this noble cause. These students had earlier in february 2013 protested their non inclusion in the internship program in Nigeria, 8 months after, the status quo remains. All hands should be on dectk!!,
like Nurse Solomon danmori said "NANNM and N&MCN should wake up to thier responsibilities"
