Pregnant nurses protesting exam ban won't be victimized
The deputy Minister of Health, Tina Mensah, has
assured the pregnant nurses who spoke against
decision to bar them from taking their exams due
to their conditions will not be victimised.

The Nursing and Midwifery Council Tuesday ordered
principals of nursing schools to allow pregnant
students and nursing mothers to write their
examinations.

Over the last months, principals of two midwifery
schools; the Pantang Midwifery School and the
Gushegu Nursing Training College have been in the
news for preventing pregnant students from taking
part in ongoing exams.

The cases sparked a backlash with some of the
affected students vowing to defy the directive
from their authorities. Some of the principals
have insisted the rule is a directive from the
Midwifery Council.

But the Registrar of the National Midwifery
Council, Felix Nyanteh, in an interview with Starr
News’ Naa Dedei Tettey said there is no such
directive which prevents pregnant and nursing
mothers from writing exams.

He said: “We had a meeting and brought all the
principals together chaired by the deputy minister
of health, Tina Mensah and the conclusion of the
matter is that from today onward no principal will
bar students from writing licensing exams or any
college exams and the reason is that we do not
have any laws in our statues; that if you are
pregnant you cannot take any exams”.

Commenting on the development Wednesday, Ms Mensah
expressed delight that the impasse has been
resolved, assuring that “the students who have
come out to make their concerns known will not be
victimized.”
