ARE NIGERIAN NURSES REALLY READY FOR THAT REVOLUTIONARY CHANGE its profession is begging and dying to have?
Will our nurses be bold enough to stand up, come out and take a stand for the kind of cause trigerred by any form of CALL FOR ACTION?
If and WHEN (still waiting endlessly for that time) our NURSING leaders wake up from slumber and decides to take the necessary action, where are the Nurses that will come out to make it work?
The same set of Nurses who in their various units have not attended any union meeting in the last 6 months? Or the Nurses in private hospitals who do not belong to a union and have been abandoned to their miserable plights?

The nurses who prefer to stay in their “discomfort zone and will start demanding for a call-off in strike action barely one week into a nationwide strike?
While it is an established fact that something is seriously wrong with NURSING leadership in Nigeria, have we simply forgotten that the MENTALITY of Nigerian Nurses also needs a total reorientation before the needed CHANGE can be made?
In the last 5 years, I have seen the huge divisive gap among Nigerian nurses being radically closed up. I have heard different dissenting voices (young and old) all call out for just one thing in common: CHANGE!
I have seen a few nursing leaders, with very good qualities of revolutionary and transformational leadership come out with sleeves rolled up and ready to work.
The big question though is: ARE NIGERIAN NURSES REALLY READY FOR ACTION?
It’s been said that: “You cannot be said to be sick and tired until you are tired of being sick and tired!”

Are our nurses really tired of being sick and tired!
30 years of complaining and lamenting, isn’t that enough to effect a change?
I pray this post does not go in the way of similar powerful social media posts I have seen in the last five years. I pray fervently look forward to see a set of generation of Nigerian Nurses who will go beyond the wall of social media and stand up to do the needful.
I hope to see all commenting on this wall go beyond words and show convincingly that they are truly ready to make the needed personal sacrifices required for a change!
It’s no longer news that Nursing leaders have failed their Nurses! Are our nurses not failing themselves?
