The Democratic Nursing Organization of South Africa continues to be concerned by the challenges faced by the nursing profession in our country. Nursing, the core backbone of health services is arguably faced with massive challenges more than any other profession in the health sector.
“These challenges include the very same poor working conditions that we have always been vocal about, the issue of school leavers who are lacking interest in pursuing nursing as a profession due to the inhuman work environments and the issue of safety and security in hospitals.” said Spokesperson for DENOSA Asanda Fongqo
“We are calling on the government to start the New Year by addressing these issues and to ensure that our health services are improved.” said Fongqo
