GNCZ Extension of Re-registration for Nurses 2019

EXTENSION OF RE-REGISTRATION EXERCISE:

NOTICE is hereby given that the deadline for the re-registration exercise for post-basic qualified Nurses and Midwives (RN/RM, RN/ROTN and RN/RMHN) that started on 1st November 2018 has been extended to end on 28th February 2019.

However, the deadline for the renewal of the 2019 nursing and midwifery practicing licences that started on 1st August 2018 is not extended, instead remains the same 31st December 2018.

In the same vein, the Council (GNCZ) wishes to congratulate all the eligible nurses and midwives who have already re-registered their post basic qualifications and renewed their 2019 professional practicing licences.

Fo those who have not yet re-registered and/or renewed their 2019 practicing licences, are encouraged to do so now in order to avoid the last minute panic, financial stress associated with payment of children’s school fees and the congestion that has started building up at GNCZ offices (since the online registration and licence renewal services are not yet available).

Further information on this matter including bank details can be obtained from your local workplace management since circulars (memos) are already sent to all provinces.

Thank you.

GNCZ Misplaced Comparison of RNMs And RN/RMHNs

MISPLACED COMPARISON OF RNMs AND RN/RMHNs:

The comparison being made between pre-service (direct) trained Registered Nurse Midwives (RNMs) and in-service (post-basic) trained Registered Mental Health Nurses (RN/RMHNs) who have been considered for the award of the automated bar code security enhanced Advanced Diplomas is misplaced.

As clarified in the last posting, the Mental Health Nurses that are eligible for re-registration and award of Advanced Diplomas are those who first trained and qualified as RNs with Diplomas then they went for post basic training as Registeted Mental Health Nurses and qualified with a diplomas in mental health nursing. So the direct (pre-service) trained Registered Mental Health Nurses (RMHNs) beinging trained nowadays are not the ones eligible for re-registration.

Therefore, there is no need for comparison between direct RNMs and direct RMHNs, since it is not the direct trained RMHNs that are eligible for re-registration and award of advanced diplomas.

For the sake of those who do not know or perhaps have just forgotten the historical development of Mental Health Nurse training in Zambia, be reminded or informed that Chainama College of Health Sciences first used to train Enrolled Psychiatric Nurses (EPNs), then in the late 1990s it started training In-Service RNs as Registered Mental Health Nurses for a period of one year and six months (making the training of a Mental Health Nurse in Zambia last a total of 4 years and 6 months). Upon graduation, they were being awarded Diplomas in Mental Health Nursing. These are the ones being refered to as RN/RMHNs and now eligible for re-registration and award of Advanced Diplomas.

Chainama College of Health Sciences is now training direct Registered Mental Health Nurses (RMHNs) just like Lusaka College of Nursing and Monze College of Nursing are training direct RNMs. All these are not eligible for the current re-registration exercise. Instead, they will be advised at an appropriate time.

Hopefully, now people know and understand the correct category of Registered Mental Health Nurses that are eligible for Advanced Diplomas.

Thank you

Tanoso Nursing College to benefit from GH¢2 billion student hostel

Freda Prempeh, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Tano North Constituency in Brong-Ahafo, was at a ceremony for work to begin on 100-bed capacity hostel facility for the Tanoso Community Health Nursing Training College (CHNTC) in the Tano North Municipality of the Region.

 

The project, to be executed by Victory for Us Limited, a local construction firm, is estimated at the cost of GH¢2 billion and is expected to be completed by 2020.

 

 

 

It’s jointly funded by the Ministry of Health and the MP’s share of the Common Fund.

 

Mrs Prempeh, who is a Deputy Minister of Works and Housing, said the facility would improve on student enrolment.

 

She said the government places priority on improving on access to quality education, hence the introduction of the free Senior High School programme which was making a significant impact in the education sector.

 

The MP urged the nursing students to avoid unhealthy lifestyles and concentrate on their books.

 

Mrs Prempeh said nursing is a divine call and advised the students to prepare themselves well and develop the mindset of serving the people anywhere they would be posted after the completion of their studies.

 

Mrs Elizabeth Wiafe, the Principal of the CHNTC, said hostel was among the urgent needs of the school and commended the MP and the government for the assistance.

 

She said with the hostel facility, the security and welfare of the students would improve, noting because of the poor security, students were always attacked by robbers.

 

Mrs Wiafe said because the students rented private hostels outside campus it was making it extremely difficult for authorities to monitor their movements.

 

She said the College, which has 610 student populations, was in urgent need quarters to solve the accommodation problems facing tutors as well as a befitting administration block.

The Students of the School of Nursing of the University College Hospital, Ibadan, Nigeria kicked off the Annual Christmas Carol Tour of the Entire Hospital today. Serendipitously, I witnessed the ceremony after reviewing my patients on the Wards. May their melodious voices bring succour and be like a Balm of Gilead for the patients on Admission.
