Among the issues presented by the union is the transition of nursing professionals from the old career to the present.

It also includes the transition of the skilful auxiliaries with the promotion course for the categories of nursing technician, the internal public tender for the technicians who increased the academic levels in the area and the salary increase.

For the success of the negotiations, according to the National Director of Human Resources of Minsa, Óscar Isalino, the fact that the employer proved to the class of nurses that there will be no salary reduction in January, due to the entry into force of the new remuneration system.

Pleased with the agreement signed with Sindea, Óscar Isalino told Angop that the Government, through Minsa, is doing everything to improve the working and salary conditions of the class.

The new nursing career regime, which comes into force in January, determines the roles of health professionals at the country level, as well as the duties and obligations of nursing technicians.
