Nimba County District #9 Representative Johnson Gwaikolo, has called for the closure of institutions operating nursing education in the Country without accreditation by the Liberia Board of Nursing and Midwifery.
Speaking over the weekend, Representative Gwaikolo called on the government and the Liberian Board for Nursing and Midwifery to scrutinize institutions before awarding them Licenses to operate.
He noted that the lack of adequate preparation by institutions would lead to deficiency in managing the Health Care System of the country, adding that having a vibrant and Sustainable Health Care System in any nation, requires appropriate education and technological structures.
The Nimba County Lawmaker also called on the government to develop the political will to shut down institutions that are not up to standard as a way of bringing an end to the flooding of unqualified nurses and laboratory technicians.
Representative Gwaikolo maintained that it is better to have few schools that are of high quality than to have Multiple Schools that cannot deliver.
