Give private trainee nurses allowances – Dr. Wilhelmina to Gov’t

The President of Garden City University College Dr. Wilhelmina J. Donkoh has called on government to ensure that private trainee nurses benefit from the trainee allowances.
The Akufo-Addo’s government this year restored trainee nurses/teachers’ allowances after the allowances were cancelled by the Mahama administration.
Ahead of the 2016 general election, the NPP promised to reintroduce the scrapped allowance.
Dr. Wilhelmina J. Donkoh speaking at the 10th Anniversary ceremony of Garden City University College of the Nursing department on November 25, 2017 described the restoration of nurses’ allowance as discriminatory saying private nursing students must also enjoy allowances.
“I don’t see why nursing students in public schools are giving allowances and those in private nursing students are not giving allowances. I am appealing to government to consider private nursing students by giving them allowances,” she said.
