Deputy Minister of Health reveals Zimbabwe has over 4 000 unemployed nurses

Responding to a question by Southerton legislator Gift Chimanikire who had asked the minister to state the number of trained graduate nurses who are currently unemployed in Zimbabwe, Health and Child Care Deputy Minister Aldrin Musiiwa said that Zimbabwe has over 4000 unemployed nurses.

Said Musiiwa:

At the moment, we have about 3,150 registered general nurses who have graduated and are out of employment. Besides that, we also have 1,100 primary care nurses who have also graduated and are awaiting employment.

To solve this situation, Musiiwa said, government was exploring ways through which it could “export” the trained labour pool to countries in need.
