The government says it has paid “the final part” of allowances due trainee nurses for the 2018/2019 academic year.
A statement from the Ministry of Health said the monies were paid on Thursday, August 8, 2019.
“This is in fulfilment of the government’s commitment to the restoration of the Nursing Trainees allowance in 2017,” the statement said.

The Ministry said a total of GH¢198.2million was released from September 2018 to June 2019 to pay all trainees in public health training institutions.
