Ministry justifies hikes in trainee nurses, midwives' fees
The Ministry of Health has justified the hundred
percent hikes in school fees of trainee nurses and
The Ghana Nurse and Midwife Trainees Association
and some students of the Mampong Nurse Training
College are protesting the increment in school
fees by the Ministry.
Some students of the Mampong Nurse Training
College, who spoke to Joynews, insisted the new
fees be reviewed.
“At first, we were paying GHS400 but now we are
paying GHS1500. It’s too much...,” one student
Another added: “Last (semester) we paid GHS409 for
our fees...but this semester we are paying almost
GHS1600 and the most annoying thing is about the
(hike in the) hostel fee.”
Despite the concerns raised by the students , the
Public Relations Officer of the sector ministry,
Anthony Goodman has maintained the increments are
not as outrageous as being portrayed.
He explained that the increment has resulted due
to high cost of living and asked the students to
forward their grievances to the ministry.
