NURSING ACT’S AMENDMENT: UGONSA FORWARDS ITS WORK TO THE NMCN, NANNM & SENATOR MOHAMMED HASSAN GUSAU


Following the completion of the work of its expanded committee of a reliable think tank set up at its 19th National Professional Conference to oversee the review of the establishment Act of the NMCN and having got input from the general nursing community, the University Graduates of Nursing Science Association (UGONSA) has transmitted the work on the bill for parliamentary amendment of the Act to the NMCN, NANNM and distinguished Senator Mohammed Hassan Gusau (Zamfara Central), who is astutely championing the parliamentary amendment of the Act at the National Assembly vide separate letters dated 2nd March 2020.
The extract from one of the letters read thus:



Senator Hassan Mohammed Gusau (Zamfara Central)
The National Assembly Complex,
Three Arms Zone, P.M.B 141 Abuja FCT.
Sir,
FORWARDING OF OUR WORK AND PROPOSAL ON AMENDMENT OF THE ESTABLISHMENT ACT OF NURSING & MIDWIFERY COUNCIL OF NIGERIA TO YOUR ESTEEMED ATTENTION
Following the inauguration of the expanded committee of a reliable and intellectual think tank (at our 19th National Professional Conference & Scientific Update – Kaduna, 2019) to oversee review of the Establishment Act of the Nursing & Midwifery Council of Nigeria and preparation of a bill for the parliamentary amendment of the Act, we are pleased to avail you the work of the committee and the proposals made thereto for further actions.
2.      It is our considered judgment as well as that of the general nursing community, whom we received input from in the course of executing this assignment, that this prototype bill document we are submitting to you if adopted and passed by the parliament shall address myriad of flawed sections in the current obsolete Act that fall short of contemporary complexities of nursing and midwifery practice, current trends and international best practices.
3.      We profoundly appreciate your selfless effort to see that the amendment of the Act sees the light of the day and our humble way of encouraging you to superlatively get it right for the profession is by articulating and availing for your guidance this document that represents the changes the general nursing community wish to be made to the Act.
4.      We are hopeful and prayerful that by the grace of God, the best shall be made out for the profession from this bold, selfless and patriotic move. We strongly assure you of our readiness to do more at any stage of the bill's process and therefore urge you not to hesitate in beckoning us when it demands. Our official email address is gnan2ugonsa@gmail.com.
5.      Please kindly find the attached bill proposal document (in soft & hard copies) and accept the assurances of our esteemed regards.


                                                                         Signed:
    

CHIEF (HON.) S.E.O. EGWUENU                                    NURSE P.O. ETENG
                          National President                                                           Ag.National Secretary
