N&MC sends notice to nurses over 2022 national service

The Nursing and Midwifery Council of Ghana (N&MC) following the release of enrolment pincodes for nurses and midwives says it is cooperating with National Service Scheme for the health professionals to start the 2022 national service.

In a statement copied to EducationWeb, the Council said it will present names of qualified nurses and midwives who have fully paid for the N&MC registration fee and have completed the registration process to NSS on June 3, 2022.

“Newly qualified nurses and midwives who have paid the registration fee but have not yet completed the registration process should kindly visit any of our regional offices before June 3, 2022, to complete the process,” N&MC stated.

For qualified nurses and midwives who have not yet paid the registration fees, the Nursing Council has urged them to pay at either GCB or ADB Bank and proceed to their regional office to complete the registration process before June 3.

“Persons who are unable to pay for the registration fees or complete the registration process will not have their names as part of the list to be presented to the NSS and as a result cannot participate in the 2022 national service,” it noted.

The Midwifery Council notice comes after the National Service Scheme on Wednesday released 11,272 PIN codes for enrollment of newly trained nurses/midwives to start their one-year national service for the 2022/23 academic year.

NSS in the statement copied to EducationWeb said all personnel are to visit the official website of the Service nss.gov.gh to access the Personal Identification Number (Pin) codes using their school index number and date of birth.

“Subsequently, prospective personnel are to proceed to any branch of ADB Bank throughout the country and make payment of an amount of forty Ghana cedis (GHC40.00),” the Ghana National Service Scheme noted in the release.

Alternatively, the Scheme says personnel can resort to MTN mobile money for convenience and most importantly, to reduce human contact as means to adhere to the safety coronavirus protocols outlined by the Ghana Health Service.

“Please note that you are required to pay an amount of forty-one Ghana cedis (GHC41.00) if you resort to the MTN mobile money for activation of the 2022 nurses/midwives pincodes for enrolment,” the Scheme said on Wednesday.
