    I don’t know what is this organization doing apart from kuponda chiphazi ma nurse technicians. Do you know that these technicians are changing profession because of this kind of leadership. A bona nanu mungoyang’ana ndi kusekerera this organization wasting our money through kukhomerera because I’ll wishes for these technician. For a technician to go to a degree level has to spend not less than seven years kkkk. Bola sindine nurse kkkk

Do not lie, anyone with the right brains can easily upgrade from Nurse Technician to Registered nurse and ambiri apanga zomwezo! Vuto ndi ena amene akufuna Degree through years of service, zomwe sizinachitikepo! Train for two years and pass an exam and you will have a degree in nursing, basi!!!

    Good lesson to Gama, akuti usiye matama but I do not have a problem with a male heading an institution dominated by ladies. Problem with ladies amayamba kulimbanirana amuna. The truth of the matter is that nurses have been known to be promiscuous . Ndiye Dorothy amaithatu,congrats

  10. Ngoma amaitha yomenyera nkhondo ma nurse. Koma lately anaoneka kuti was becoming more political than advocate. And surely turned to politics. Now ndale zamulaka akubweranso ku ma nurse. Take note Ngoma, don’t fight govt. Help govt make better decisions that your ideas. Don’t give govt ultimatums, they derail progress. If you continue your ridicules, you will fall like chanika. Nurses council is not a human right body. Take that in your head.
