The news that the Nursing and Midwifery council of Nigeria is expecting some amendment to its Act should the bill be passed is no longer news in the face of the Nigeria Community of Nursing and Midwives. For years, many nurses have clamoured for an amendment on some old and rough parts such as the punishment for quackery and many others.
While many are aware of a proposal for a bill, many are unaware of the content. Earlier this week, in response to questions in a virtual meeting with Nursing group administrators, the Registrar of the Nursing and Midwifery Council Chairman said: (paraphrased words with similar meaning)
Act had first reading last year
Scheduled for second reading last month but i think last month, on 17 or 24 last month scheduled for reading.
Senate had to adjourn that day
They are still pushing on the bill
