The Council has inducted 98 newly registered Nurse Practitioners who graduated from the University of Development Studies, Tamale Campus.
Hajia Mariama Sumani, Chairman of the out-going caretaker Governing Board of the Council, led the Nurse Practitioners to recite the Nurses pledge which binds them to, among others, place their clients at the centre of their jobs and against all odds be selfless and dedicated to their profession.
Speaking at the ceremony, the Registrar of N&MC,Mr. Felix Nyante disclosed that the Council’s decision to regulate the practice of the Nurse Practitioners was taken in October 2014 after series of stakeholders meetings.
It was a moment of joy for members of the newly inaugurated 13th Governing Board of the Council on Friday June 19, 2015 at the Ministry of Health Conference room when the Minister of Health Hon. Alex Segbefia said ‘congratulations’ after swearing them in.
The 11-Member Governing Board replaces the 12th Governing Board which ended their Tenure of Office in 2013 but held the fort as the Caretaker Board until last Friday.
Delivering his inaugural address Hon. Alex Segbefia urged the Governing Board to ensure that the practice of nursing and midwifery was carried out within the confines of the law and code of professional conduct.
Registrar of the Council, Mr. Felix Nyante has encouraged staff of the Council to work towards achieving the three Strategic Objectives outlined in the Five-year Strategic Plan which was launched in April this year.
