The National Service Scheme (NSS) has announced the release of Personal Identification Number (PIN) Codes for 12,594 Ghanaian nursing trainees who are required to undertake their mandatory one-year national service in the upcoming 2023/2024 service year.
These nursing trainees, who are in their final year of training, come from 107 accredited Nursing Training Institutions across the country.
They have met the criteria set by the Nurses and Midwives Council, Ghana Health Service, and Ministry of Health, qualifying them for deployment during their national service.
In a press release issued in Accra and signed by Mr. Ambrose Entsiwah Jnr, the Acting Director of Corporate Affairs of the National Service Scheme, eligible nursing trainees were instructed to visit the NSS website (www.nss.gov.gh) and access the “Applications” menu.
Using their assigned Students’ ID or Index Numbers from their institutions, they could obtain their unique NSS enrollment PIN Codes.
Subsequently, they were required to make a payment of GHC40.00 at any branch of ADB Bank Ltd. or GHC41.00 through the MTN MoMo platform to activate the enrollment process.
The statement emphasized the importance of nursing trainees personally completing the enrollment process to avoid any errors that could affect their subsequent deployment.
To ensure inclusion in this year’s postings, all eligible nursing trainees were advised to complete the enrollment process before the deadline of Friday, June 9, 2023.
This initiative by the NSS is expected to facilitate the smooth enrollment and deployment of qualified nursing trainees, enabling them to contribute to national service within the healthcare sector.
