We experience poor service at hospitals because nurses work for money, not passion - Lady reveals

Nabco trainee, Betty Agyei has disclosed that due to the high unemployment rate in Ghana, most parents push their wards into the nursing and teaching fields where jobs after completion are assured. 

In a chat with DJ Nyaami on SVTV Africa, the KNUST graduate clarified that due to this, the level of education for the job has decreased. 

”I've realised that most parents due to the lack of job opportunities, force their children into nursing or teaching because they think there is the assurance of posting. 

It is affecting our community because these days they are passionate about the job but because they need the money,” Betty said. 

She advised that the youth follow their passion and make it their source of livelihood instead of working for someone for the sake of it.

Betty moreover indicated that ”as a society, we should focus on making professions such as doctors, engineers etc attractive to the young ones instead of slay queens or celebrities.”

Betty has an undergraduate degree in geography and rural development and a Masters degree in Sustainable and Integrated Rural Development.
