RE: Why Nurses Are Not Prepared To Lead The Nations Health Section Godwin Imeka
Date Posted: 03/Mar/2018
I must say that I am very much dismayed at what a colleague Nurse. Babatunde Ogunsanwo has had published on your journal. This shows apparently that he didn't read my opinion recently published. While I am not trying to compel people to agree with my school of thought, I think it may also be logical to ask ourselves certain questions as this:
How far has being critical helped us?
According to him, nurses are behind and to justify that, he used measurement, comparing the profession to other. On what scale he makes this traumatising hypothesis, I have no idea.
Nurses do not have to have a PhD to be leaders, does this mean it is not necessary? No, it means leadership goes beyond certificates, otherwise why would have anyone voted the current President of Nigeria. By virtue of your training in whatever level, you are supposed to be a leader.
Also, joining JOHESU maybe not be that favourable and I consider that point as only nurses can best communicate their needs to others. If you think your suggesting it would help, join NANNM and change things. 
The HNDN is a way of helping nurses get across easily through undergraduate level to post graduate and it doesn't mean nurses become technicians, it means Nigerian universities do not have space for every Nigerian so, an alternative should be created.
Before the so called Dpharm, I would like to ask him, does he not know any nurse who holds a PhD?
Does the phdN not exist in Nigeria?
Before we say anything, let us not be too gay to say them out of emotions but think them through critically, a nurse made a comment on the Bnsc saga and was heavily corrected on ÑURSES ON AIR...Never to say that in public...
The BNsc is good and a PhD is too, get them, but your not being a leader isn't because you have an RN only, it is because you lack leadership skills and abilities. Lastly the issue of quackery is every nurse's business not just NMCN what have you done to change things....
My heart bleeds whenever I see these critical comments which have not head and does not lead us anywhere. The more we sing our glory and greatness, the more we become so, the more we down grade ourselves and wash our dirty linens in public, the more people take us to be unserious. Do not think only nurses read use this website... It is in the public domain.
