|We need to start Calling Nurses by their professional title in Nigeria by peter: Mon Nov 2021 08:00pm|
Good day everyone. Nurses are wanderful and unique set of people ready to change the narrative of many unprofessional practices in Nursing, one of which is the way we are called Oga, Matron, Sister, Mrs and Mr. All of these doesn't reflect our Professional tittle.
Do you know that Nurse title Nr is not part of office title abbreviations, you will see Dr, Eng, Pharm, Cheif, etc but no Nr to acknowledge our existence as professionals.
As part of our move to change things, I advise that we begin to deliberately address ourselves and colleagues as Nr (NURSE).
Start to use the professional title Nr Taiwo, Nr Grace, Nr Raliat, Nr Samuel.
At the end of your report, write Nr Bolaji J. and sign, Nr Bridget O. and sign.
NURSES!!! Stop calling yourselves matron, sister, Oga, Mr and Mrs and correct any Doctor or anyone who calls you wrongly. You have a Professional title, USE IT.
Let us advocate this. Give this orientation to your colleagues.
God bless us all.
