Govt Suspends Nurse Training Indefinitely

Zimbabwe’s government has indefinitely suspended the recruitment of nursing students.

This was announced in a circular to provincial medical directors and schools of nursing, the secretary for health Gerald Gwinji.  Gwinji did not provide reasons for the decision. In a circular dated December 18, Gwinji said:

Please be informed that the recruitment of student nurses from May 2019 and beyond has been suspended.

The freeze on recruitment comes as the government has been failing to offer employment to nursing graduates, citing financial pressure and an out-of-control wage bill.
