Gov’t pays GHS198m allowance to nurses

The government of Ghana, through the Ministry of Health (MoH), has paid the final tranche of allowance to nurse trainees for the 2018/19 academic year.

The ministry, in a statement, said each trainee nurse received GHS400 for 10 months in each academic year to support their academic and clinical works.

In all, the government said it released an amount of GHS198,200,000 from September 2018 to June 2019 to pay all trainees in public health training institutions.

The ministry noted that it is working assiduously to ensure that trainees who could not receive their allowances owing to challenges with their E-zwitch cards are paid immediately.
