PROPER PLACEMENT: UGONSA CONFRONTS COMPTROLLER GENERALS OF PARAMILITARY OUTFITS

UGONSA has taken the battle for Proper Placement to the Comptroller Generals of the Nigerian Prison Service (NPS), Nigeria Imigration Service (NIS), Federal Fire Service (FFS) and the Commandant of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC). UGONSA also wrote a reminder on the subject matter to the Federal Minister of Interior with attention to the Director of Human Resources of the Ministry. In another separate letter  UGONSA further wrote the Director/Secretary of the Civil Defence, Fire, Immigration, and Prisons Services Board (CDFIBP). Recall that CDFIBP had in its advert for employment on Daily Trust Newspaper of Monday 30 April, 2018 placed all nurses (including those with B.N.Sc degree) on CONHESS 06 under the inspectorate cadre whereas their counterparts in Pharmacy (another core healthcare profession as nursing) with the Bachelor of Pharmacy (B.Pharm) degree were placed on CONHESS 09 under the superintendent cadre. Following the marginalizing advert, UGONSA had written the Federal Ministry of Interior on May 18th, 2018 but latest investigation revealed that the Ministry is yet to correct the aberration, hence the latest confrontation of all the heads of the paramilitary outfits under the Ministry of Interior involved in this aberrant under placement of the graduates of B.N.Sc degree as well as the board that oversees them with a reminder to the Minister. Below is a sample of the letters:    



The Comptroller General,
Nigeria Prison Service,
Prisons National Headquarters,
Bill Clinton Drive, 
Airport Road, Abuja.

Sir/Madam,

PROPER PLACEMENT OF GRADUATES OF BACHELOR OF NURSING SCIENCE (B.N.Sc) DEGREE

Nightingales’ greeting from members of University Graduates of Nursing Science Association (UGONSA), the professional association of nurses with a minimum of first degree in nursing. 

2. We write to bring to your attention the extant situation on the placement of graduates of Bachelor of Nursing Science (B.N.Sc) degree in the Civil Service post-NYSC (National Youth Service Corps).

3. Kindly note that on September 8, 2016 the office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation (HCSF) released a circular, Ref No. HCSF/EIR/CND/S.100/ST/97, which prescribed the placement of graduates of B.N.Sc degree as Grade Level 09 (.i.e CONHESS 08) post-NYSC (Kindly refer Annexure A). The release of the referred circular was sequel to National Council on Establishment (NCE) meeting held on July 22, 2016 in Minna, Niger State.

4. Following the release of the circular, the placement of graduate nurses in the civil service anywhere in Nigeria became the new base of Grade Level 09 post-NYSC (.i.e. the equivalent of the CONHESS 08).

5. This was as evidenced by the Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH) Circular, Ref No.C6093/T/13 dated 19th June, 2017, which succinctly clarified that the extant placement of graduates of B.N.Sc degree post-NYSC is GL 09 effective from 8th September, 2016 (being the date of release of the circular by office of the HCSF) and that Nursing officers who were already in the service before this date, and are still below this new base shall be upgraded to the new base (.i.e. Grade Level 09) effective from the said date of release of the circular by the office of the HCSF (.i.e. 8th September, 2016) (Please refer Annexure B).

6. To ensure speedy implementation of the circulars by all institutions that employ graduate nurses, the FMOH vide another circular Ref No. C.6093/T/16 dated February 20, 2018 directed heads of institutions to expressly effect the proper placement of graduate nurses (kindly refer Annexure C). This resulted in massive implementation of the circular in many institutions round the federation.

7. We therefore most respectfully request that you kindly implement the proper placement of graduates of B.N.Sc degree in the Nigeria Prison Service by moving nurses employed by the service, who have B.N.Sc degree, to the superintendent cadre and forthwith make fresh appointment of the graduates of B.N.Sc degree on the superintendent cadre.

8. Our demand stemmed from our observation that in the advert for recruitment of officers made by the Civil Defence, Fire, Immigration, and Prisons Services Board (CDFIBP) on Daily Trust Newspaper of Monday 30 April, 2018 all nurses (including those with B.N.Sc degree), were aberrantly placed on CONHESS 06 under the inspectorate cadre whereas their counterparts in Pharmacy (another core healthcare profession as nursing) with the Bachelor of Pharmacy (B.Pharm) degree were placed on CONHESS 09 under the superintendent cadre (please refer Annexure D).

9. This aberration, which we hope was not intentionally done, is at variance with the gazetted verdict of the Industrial Arbitration Panel (IAP) award of the year 1981, which granted that the profession of Nursing is on parity with that of Pharmacy in Nigeria, as is the case in Great Britain (kindly refer Annexure E). 

10. Therefore, the basis for appointment of graduates of B.Pharm degree on the superintendent cadre also justifies why the graduates of the B.N.Sc degree, who are on parity with them, should be appointed on the same cadre especially as both professions of nursing and pharmacy have similar entry requirements and course duration for the first degree in the university plus a one year internship training pre-NYSC.

11. Having made these humble clarifications to your esteemed office, we anticipate soonest a positive reply that the proper placement of the graduate nurses has been effected by the prison service.

12. Attached herewith are the referenced circulars and documents.

PRAYER

We most respectfully demand that you 

1. upgrade existing officers possessing B.N.Sc degree who were aberrantly appointed on CONHESS 06 under the inspectorate cadre to the superintendent cadre on CONHESS 08 (.i.e. Grade Level 09) effective from 8th September, 2016 (being the date of release of the circular REF No. HCSF/EIR/CND/S.100/ST/97 by the office of the head of civil service of the federation) as prescribed by the civil service circular, Ref No. B63279/S.7/II/T/273 dated 24th April, 2002 (please refer Annexure F).

2. commence the employment of fresh graduate nurses into the prison services on CONHESS 08 under the superintendent cadre and upgrade the existing prison service officers possessing B.N.Sc degree who were wrongly employed below the new base of CONHESS 08 after 8th September, 2016 to CONHESS 08 effective from the date of their employment.

Kindly accept the assurances of our esteemed regards!

Attention

Director of Health Centre,

Sir/Madam,

PROPER PLACEMENT OF GRADUATE NURSES

Nightingales’ greeting from members of University Graduates of Nursing Science Association (UGONSA), the professional association of nurses with a minimum of first degree in nursing. 

2. We write to bring to your esteemed attention the extant situation on the placement of graduates of Bachelor of Nursing Science (BNSc) degree in the Civil Service post-NYSC (National Youth Service Corps).

3. Kindly note that on September 8, 2016 the Head of Civil Service of the Federation (HCSF) released a circular, Ref No. HCSF/EIR/CND/S.100/ST/97, which prescribed the placement of graduates of BNSc degree as Grade Level 09 (.i.e CONUNAS 08) post-NYSC. The release of the referred circular was sequel to National Council on Establishment (NCE) meeting held on July 22, 2016 in Minna, Niger State, which Ekiti State Government was ably part and parcel of.

4. Following the release of the circular, the placement of graduate nurses in the civil service anywhere in Nigeria became Grade Level 09 post-NYSC (.i.e. the equivalent of the CONUNAS 08).

5. This was as evidenced by the Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH) Circular, Ref No.C6093/T/13 dated 19th June, 2017, which succinctly clarified that the extant placement of graduates of BNSc degree post-NYSC is GL 09 effective from 8th September, 2016 (being the date of release of the circular by office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation) and that Nursing officers who were already in the service before this date, and are still below this new base shall be upgraded to the new base (.i.e. Grade Level 09) effective from the said date of release of the circular (.i.e. 8th September, 2016).

This resulted in massive implementation of the circular in many institutions round the federation including in Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital (EKSUTH), the teaching Hospital of your University, EKSU.

7. We therefore most respectfully request that you kindly implement the proper placement of graduates of BNSc degree in your own institution, EKSU.

8. Attached herewith are the referenced circulars and documents.

PRAYER
We most respectfully demand that you 

1. upgrade existing nursing officers who were on CONUNAS 07 before the release of the circular to the new base of CONUNAS 08 (.i.e. Grade Level 09) effective from 8th September, 2016 (being the date of release of the circular REF No. HCSF/EIR/CND/S.100/ST/97 by the office of the head of civil service of the federation) as prescribed by the civil service circular, Ref No.B63279/S.7/II/T/273 dated 24th April, 2002 (please refer the attached circular).

2. commence the employment of fresh graduate nurses on CONUNAS 08 and upgrade the existing nursing officers who were wrongly employed on CONUNAS 07 after 8th September, 2016 to CONUNAS 08 effective from the date of their employment.

UGONSA BATTLES UNTH OVER EXCLUSION OF NURSE INTERNS FROM INTERNSHIP ADVERTS

The Chief Medical Director,
University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital (UNTH),
Ituku-Ozalla, Enugu State

Attention:
Director of Administration
                   &
Head of Nursing Services, UNTH

Sir/Madam,

DELIBERATE EXCLUSION OF NURSE INTERN POSITION FROM INTERNSHIP ADVERT OF YOUR HOSPITAL FOR THE SECOND CONSECUTIVE TIME SINCE THE RELEASE OF THE NURSES’ INTERNSHIP CIRCULAR IS AN ILL WIND THAT WILL BLOW NO ONE ANY GOOD

Nightingales greetings from the University Graduates of Nursing Science Association (UGONSA), the professional association of nurses with a minimum of first degree in nursing.

2. Recall that the office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation (HCSF) had on 8th September, 2016 released a circular, REF No. HCSF/EIR/CND/S.100/ST/97, that made a one-year internship training a compulsory part of nursing education for the Bachelor of Nursing Science (B.N.Sc) degree as is obtainable with the university education of other healthcare disciplines (refer Annexure A).

3. Recall also that when your hospital wrongly excluded the position of nurse intern from its advert placement for internship training in November, 2017, we complained to your office and thereafter approached the Federal Ministry of Health for intervention and the Ministry in her letter, Ref No. C2920/S.3/C.2/VOL1/116 dated 12th February, 2018 addressed to your office ordered your hospital to implement the nurses’ internship and the proper placement of graduate nurses who are already in the workforce from CONHESS 07 to CONHESS 08 (.i.e the new entry point base into the civil service for the graduate nurses) (refer Annexure B).

4. We were taken aback on Friday 16th November, 2018 as our attention was called to an advert placement for internship training by your hospital, as published by an online news media via the link http://nigerianmedinterns.com/the-university-of-nigeria-teaching-hospital-ituku-ozalla-calls-for-applications , which listed internship positions for the graduates of other healthcare disciplines except nursing.

5. This is despite the fact that the Federal Ministry of Health had on February 20, 2018 vide its letter Ref No. C.6093/T/16, written all the Chief Medical Directors (CMDs)/Medical Directors (MDs), Heads of Regulatory Bodies/Agencies, including your esteemed office, directing advertisement for nurse interns and proper placement of already employed graduates of B.N.Sc degree (refer Annexure C).

6. Accompanying the said letter (.i.e Annexure C) was another letter, Ref No.C6093/T/13 dated 19th June, 2017, where the Ministry succinctly spelt out the guidelines for implementation of the circular for the nurses’ internship and proper placement (refer Annexure D).

7. Apart from directing that the internship should be implemented, the referred letter (.i.e Annexure D) also stated that all nursing officers hitherto on grade level 08 (.i.e CONHESS 07) should be moved to the new base of grade level 09 (CONHESS 08) and that seniority on the new post should be effective from 8th September, 2016 (being the date of release of the circular REF No. HCSF/EIR/CND/S.100/ST/97 by the office of the head of civil service of the federation).

8. It is also good to further remind you that on 3rd October, 2017 the Federal Ministry of Health had, vide a circular, Ref No. DHS/800/I/T/8, specifically directed all CMDs/MDs, including your office, to implement the nurses’ internship circular and report the status of the implementation to the ministry (refer ANNEXURE E).

9. It is therefore very unfortunate, to see this directives being trivialized by UNTH under your able leadership when other hospitals have implemented it to give nurses a sense of inclusiveness and equity.

10. From the foregoing, it is very convenient to completely exonerate the Federal Ministry of Health from any culpability whatsoever in the non-implementation of internship and proper placement of graduate nurses by your hospital.

11. Having written you on this subject matter on several occasions since the release of the circular as well as the avalanche of evidences that showed that the Federal Ministry of Health had on different occasions directed  you to implement the circular, with the unfortunate outcome of yet excluding nurse interns in the current internship advert by your hospital as well as refusal to make CONHESS 08 the new entry point of the graduate nurses, we are constrained to belief that what is at play at UNTH is a deliberate and calculated discrimination against nurses.

12. Our people are already agitated and cannot continue to endure such humiliation and discrimination. Since it is a treatise that equity breeds lasting peace, we  appeal that what is due for nurses should be implemented by your hospital for them without further delay as continued denial of their right remains an ill wind that will blow us no good in the nearest future.

PRAYER
We respectfully demand that you

1. advertise the post of nurse interns as was done for the interns of other healthcare disciplines.

2. help fresh graduate nurses, both of Enugu State and non-Enugu State extraction, trained in University of Nigeria Enugu Campus (UNEC) and other universities across the country complete their nursing education vis-à-vis internship training by offering them opportunity to run internship training in your hospital.

3. upgrade existing nursing officers who were on CONHESS 07 before the release of the circular to the new base of CONHESS 08 effective from 8th September, 2016 (being the date of release of the circular REF No. HCSF/EIR/CND/S.100/ST/97 by the office of the head of civil service of the federation) as prescribed by the civil service circular, Ref No. B63279/S.7/II/T/273 dated 24th April, 2002 (please refer Annexure F).

4. commence the employment of fresh graduate nurses on CONHESS 08 and upgrade the existing nursing officers who were wrongly employed on CONHESS07 after 8th September, 2016 to CONHESS 08 effective from the date of their employment.
Kindly accept the assurances of our esteemed regards.
