GRNMA Tells Unemployed Nurses To Seek Greener Pastures Abroad (See Details)



Perpetual Ofori-Ampofo, the president of the Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association (GRNMA), has urged unemployed nurses to leave Ghana if they are given the chance to work elsewhere in the world.

She said that since one cannot spend their free time at home after school, if they have the opportunity to travel, work, and generate some revenue for themselves, why not? They should make the most of the situation.

To that effect, Mrs Perpetual recommended that: “The only thing we can do is advice our members, now there is opportunity abroad, and you need to go and top up your skills and work there so that you can earn money for yourself, then go there;

Or if you have support in this country from your family that you can upgrade yourself, go back to school and upgrade yourself, take advantage of this,” she added.

The President, who has over 15 years of experience as well, stated that while she understands that those who have already moved are based on experience and that may be a barrier for them, that should not stop them from improving themselves and exploring opportunities to work and earn money abroad because if they stay at home, the skills they have acquired will be forgotten.

Her remarks follow the announcement by the finance minister, Ken Ofori-Atta, that public sector hiring will be frozen in the 2023 budget that was delivered to parliament on Thursday, November 25, 2022.

On Monday, November 28, 2022, Alfred Ocansey and the President of the GRNMA spoke on 3FM’s Sunrise Morning Show.

According to Mrs. Perpetual Ofori-Ampofo, finding work in the private sector might occasionally be challenging.

‘They try to get employment in the private sectors, but sometimes it is difficult for them because employers think that, when they employ such nurses and the government of Ghana gives them permanent employment, they will leave, so they block them off.

It is only in some few cases that the private health facilities employ them, but the fact is that the majority of them are home doing nothing”, she emphasized.
