GOVERNMENT TO PAY ABATED NURSES TRAINEE ALLOWANCE
A Technical Committee set up by the President to review the issue of nursing students’ allowances has recommended the payment of an abated allowance with a possibility to migrate them onto the students Loan Scheme.
The payment which will amount to about GHC150 a month is aimed at supporting 34,500 students who are currently pursuing various levels of health professional training across the country.
The payment amount would serve as a bridging mechanism pending the amendment of the Students Loan Trust Act, to enable students in non-tertiary Health Training Institutions access loans to support their education.
Further information will be available at the Health Training Institutions Secretariat.
