The National Service Scheme (NSS) has released postings of 10,975 nurses and midwives to undertake their mandatory service at approved health facilities across the country for the 2022/2023 service year.

A press release dated June 9 announced that their service will begin on Friday, July 1, 2022.

The registration process began on June 9, and is expected to be completed by all prospective personnel by June 30, 2022.

“Kindly note that there exists a backlog of 346 nurses and midwives yet to be posted due to their inability to complete registration on time. The affected persons failed to present one of the accepted national IDs (Ghana Card, passport, SSNIT, new Voter’s ID) during the registration process.

“Such personnel have already been requested to complete their registration for deployment,” the release signed by the NSS Executive Director, Osei Assibey Antwi added.

Management of the Scheme has urged all posted nurses and midwives to accept their placements and “consider them as part of their contribution towards building a prosperous Ghana.”

“All eligible nurses and midwives are required to log onto the Scheme’s website to check their placements and proceed to their various user agencies to endorse their appointment.”
