This is Important for Nurses in Nigeria as over 70% of Nurses are graduates and certificate holders in the 36 months intensive hospital based Nursing training programme. The holders of this certificate are mostly well grounded in practicals, working in the clinical areas and a bridge programme to obtain a degree in Nursing will go a long way in enhancing their knowledge and practical skills in the discharge of their duties to meet up with current trends with best international practices and standards.
Nursing is being relegated in the health care settings in Nigeria because other health care workers see Nurses as being less Educated than they are(80% of Nurses working in hospitals are Graduates of Schools of Nursing with/without post basic Specialty Nursing Certificates["diploma"]) and in most cases, Nurses are not being involved in decision making despite the fact that Nurses have the highest Population in these settings and are at the front line of quality health care service Delivery.
We got this!, ...Yes, We can achieve this...We are the FUTURE OR NURSING IN NIGERIA and TOGETHER,WE CAN!!!!!!!!!
