Philippine Nurses Association is currently under fire from nurses who are expecting for more meaningful content postings in the organization’s social media accounts.
A concerned group named “Nurses for change” asked the highest governing body of professional nurses to post relevant issues such as nurses’ rights instead of advertising for seminars or training.
In addition, netizens joined the sentiment of the group, some blatantly described PNA as a mediocre organization.
With what is happening concerning the nursing profession in the Philippines, it is clear as day that nurses are starting to get dissatisfied from the governing body.
Enshrined in the purpose of the PNA is “To promote professional growth towards the attainment of highest standards of nursing.”
However, this does not sit well with the nurses who are expecting more from the organization. Some of the nurses even said that PNA is too distant and too insignificant to their professional growth given the fact that nurses (both the old and the new) pay for their registration fee, once every year.
