The Jirapa District Director of the Ghana health services, Feeby Balangunyentimi has expressed worry about the poor performance of students of the Jirapa Nursing Training School. The school performed abysmally last year in the licencial examination which according to Madam Feeby Balangunyentimi could lead to the closure of the school by the nurses and midwifery council. “I am saying the results we received the last time should be the last of its kind because if that should continue, they will close down the school,” she warned. The Jirapa District Health Director made the remark after the school received three pickups and a bus all valued at a little over two hundred thousand Ghana cedis (GHC 200,000) at Jirapa. The Health Director said it was about health practitioners changed their approach to the profession. She said the negative perception of health workers must cease. The Jirapa Member of Parliament (MP), Dr Francis Bawaanaa presented the vehicles to the school on behalf of the Health Minister. He said the presentation was in fulfillment of the NDC government’s Better Ghana Agenda. “There is no doubt that the direction that the NDC government is going with professionals, university lecturers, doctors, and nurses, gradually your pockets will be full,” the MP told the nurses trainees.
