Dear minister Deepak Bohora 

Ministry of health and population .


I, on the behalf of all nurses want some clarification regarding nursing profession and reputation which has been underestimated since so many years . Sir , kindly draw you attention in these following topics promptly . 

1) Recently I got to know you have changed national health policy which was launched to get ammended previously by health minister Gagan Thapa, with the excuse of lacking nursing personnel . Sir , let me tell you about this ,75,000 nurses have been registered till now and  each year around 1000 nurses used to go abroad  for job placement due to lack of placement in Nepal . And you think we don't have 12000 nurses for school health program.

2) Secondly , Dr. Pradhan passed statement by stating "nursing  are self centered " . Kindly sir , suggest me which profession is devoted for human kind in health issue and misseries other than nursing  profession . 

3) Being in reputed post like Health minister , have you ever thought about  solving the issues of nurses. When nurses reached to your office with their problems  , they were shattered  down .

4) We have nurses who are obliged to do volunteers and doing it in low payments. You didn't see them  but you felt scarcity of nursing profession in nepal . Kindly review the current  status of nurses.

5) Kindly draw your attention on the payments /salary of nurses . This is the major alarming issue now .

6) Every time nursing is shattered down but no one is there to raise voice and there is no separate department for nurses  with nursing personnel . When it was about to launch again people with higher authorities merged it. 

7) We nurses need respect , dignity like other profession .We too hold degree . But I don't know what is the problem with people of those higher authorities who always dominate nursing profession .  So , we need separate department for nurses to handle our issues. 

8) Do you have any idea that nurses pursuing degree in India (karnataka state) are not getting registration . They have closed registration since 2013 september  . But anyone from our country didn't bother to ask reason neither nepal embassy . Still our government is silent  .why?

So, we request you to draw your attention on these problems  as soon as possible .
