Harare Hospital CEO Dr Nyasha Masuka said the Harare Central Hospital School of Nursing will be conducting their recruitment process in public from this year onwards.
There are reports some prospective nurses have had to bribe officials to get a place at a nurses’ training school. Dr Masuka invited members of the public to observe the selection process.Said Dr Masuka:
All applications will have to come via the post office and will conduct the selection in a ballot box. We will invite members of the public to observe the selection process.
Harare Hospital will be reducing its intake from the current 72 to 35 so as to scale up the standards of its graduates. Last week, the Ministry of Health and Child Care announced revised requirements of trainees for the registered general nurses’ course from May 2019, citing that they now require 5 Ordinary levels including Mathematics in one (1) sitting.
