An Open Letter To The Registrar, Nursing And Midwifery Council Of Nigeria By Ayman Nuhu (@bobojeeen)
Date Posted: 23/Jan/2018
I will like to use this medium to congratulate the Registrar, for his award as “Nurse of the year” I would like to highlight some important issues concerning the on-going strike by the Non- Academic Staff Union of Universities
With reference to the ongoing strike action by the non- academic staff unions of universities, I will like to make the following observations.
The clinical Instructors, whom I am surprised to discover, are part of this strike action.
This is surprising, because ‘in my opinion’ they should belong to the teaching staff.
It was observed that clinical Instructors in schools and colleges of Nursing are part of the teaching staff. They partake in classroom teaching, practical demonstrations and clinical teaching in service areas. Unfortunately, when the program was moved to the universities, these set of people could not fit anywhere in the system, so they were automatically placed as senior staff only.
The issue here is that, now that lectures have resumed, these instructors are at home and the consequences’ are as follows:
1. All practical demonstrations for 200L to 500L students are on hold.
2. 500L students are in the wards without supervision 
3. 500L are to have their first contact with O&G and midwifery skills, same on hold.
4. Preparation for March and May council exams will be affected as the instructors supervise the client care and record of instructions, while putting them through their first OSCE exams.
I believe these issues are very grave and need to be addressed urgently to save the students and the system in general.

Thank You
