YEA, is in the process of recruiting senior high school graduates who are currently staying at home for certain reasons beyond their control that, they are planning to employ such individuals to become nurses and doctors who are going to be treating and attending to patients at various medical facilities in the country.
The report has it to the effect that, the authority has announced four hundred cedis of take home salaries of those senior high leavers when the authority engages them so as to attend to some pressing needs to those who have found themselves on the sick beds of hospitals in the country as a whole.
According to the authorities of the Youth Employment Authority are at the moment, employing senior high graduates to work as nurses and doctors after the agency stated it would be giving out four hundred cedis monthly payment of those who are going to be engaged to attend to the cares and supports of those at the hospitals across the country.
According to the officials at the Youth Employment Authority, the kind of people they are planning to work with, they are not necessarily going to work as full time nurses and doctors but rather, they are going to assist those who are already registered nurses and doctors and not for them to be working as professional doctors and nurses because they are yet to undergo such rigours training so that they could become registered nurses and doctors but at the moment, they are not qualified nurses and doctors therefore their duty is just to give helping hands to the registered nurses and doctors across the various hospitals the country in general.
