The government has started recruiting nurses to meet the 2 000 posts that were approved by the treasury. Health Services Board (HSB) said nurses would be recruited in three batches, this month, in July and in September this year. HSB advised all applicants to be registered with the Nurses Council of Zimbabwe.
In a statement the HSB said:
The Health Services Board as the employer of Public Health Workers has begun deploying Registered General Nurses within the Health Sector. The deployment will be in three phases, with the first group on nurses assuming duty in April, the second on July 1 and the final in September this year.
The board in line with its mandate to appoint persons to offices, posts and grades in health services deploys nurses according to the years they completed training, with those who graduated earlier being deployed first. In deployment, efforts are made to deploy nurses according to their preferred provinces.
Furthermore, the board would like to advise members of the public that it does not make communication through social media platforms
