This statement was made Monday to Angop, in the city of Cuito, by the head of the ORDEFA in the province of Bié, Eduardo Cahangula, noting that due to greed and easy profit, certain nursing schools continue to disobey the standards required by the International Nursing Council.

Without mentioning the names of the institutions, he denounced as major irregularities the excess of students in the classrooms (more than 70 students), lack of laboratories and libraries with literature that corresponds with the epidemiological profile of the country.

He said that ORDEFA is concerned about the poor technical conditions in the health units for the practical training of nursing professionals, pointing out that these and other factors can negatively influence the performance of the newly graduated.
