Government has applauded voluntary young nurses for their commitment to national duty despite industrial action by several doctors across the country.
Speaking during the press conference held at Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals the Minister of Health and Child Care, Dr Obadiah Moyo highly praised the work of young nurses during the festive season.
“We are happy about the young nurses who donated themselves to serve the people lives.
“We have approved 700 nurses to help junior and senior doctors.
“Government has written their names in the blue book,” he said.
Dr Moyo said voluntary is rare in young generation.
“It is difficult to find young people who can donate their time at holiday to serve the lives and they are ready to serve.
“We are also happy that these nurses are enhancing their skills,” said Dr Moyo.
Student nurse Dumisani Majongwe said they were committed to helping the ministry.
“Since senior doctors are on holiday we have chosen to serve our parents’ lives and we are ready to serve.
“We knew the ministry needed assistance and chose to assist our brothers and sisters,” said Majongwe.
