Gov’t to pay abated nurses trainee allowance

Mr Alex SegbefiaA Technical Committee set up by President John Mahama to review the issue of nursing students’ allowances has recommended the payment of an abated allowance with a possibility to migrate them onto the students Loan Scheme.

The payment which will amount to about GHC150 a month is aimed at supporting 34,500 students who are currently pursuing various levels of health professional training across the country, according to a statement signed by the Health Minister Alex Segbefia.

“The payment amount would serve as a bridging mechanism pending the amendment of the Students Loan Trust Act, to enable students in non-tertiary Health Training Institutions access loans to support their education,” it added.

Further information will be available at the Health Training Institutions Secretariat, the statement served notice.
