COMMUNIQUE ON TWERKING ON SOCIAL MEDIA BY A “NURSE
The attention of the leadership of Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association (GRNMA) has been drawn to a video clip on Social Media, which projects a “nurse” twerking in her uniform.
It is not clear who this individual is, whether indeed she is a Nurse and which health facility she works or it is just someone simply dressed in Nurses uniform.
The GRNMA strongly disapproves of such capers by Nurses and Midwives and regards the twerking in a professional unform as an unacceptable conduct and a disgrace to our noble profession. Such practices do not reflect the ethics, etiquette and standards of our professions and therefore the GRNMA vehemently disassociates itself from the video.
In view of the above, the leadership of the GRNMA is directing all District and Regional Executives as well as the general membership to assist in the identification of the said “nurse” if indeed she is one and provide the Head Office with any information that can assist in investigation by contacting the GRNMA National Public Relation Officers.
Nursing and Midwifery are noble professions and as such all Nurses and Midwives in Ghana are advised to desist from such unacceptable behaviour especially when in uniform in order to protect the dignity of the profession.
PERPETUAL OFORI-AMPOFO (FWACN, FGCNM) PRESIDENT
DAVID TENKORANG-TWUM (FGCNM) GENERAL SECRETARY
