CLAIM: The Ministry of Health and Child Care is partnering with a United Kingdom institution, Axiomcare to offer primary care nursing training and take Zimbabwean nurses to work in the United Kingdom.
An advert has been circulating claiming that the alleged nursing intake is on and the Ministry of Health and Child Care’s official application portal has been put as the official link for the applications.
The advert reads “Applications for the 2-year certificate primary care nurse training to be conducted by Axiomcare institute are invited from suitably qualified persons having the following qualifications: 5 O-levels with a grade C or better including English and a science subject. Must be aged between 17 and thirty.
Nurse aides already working in the health care delivery system have an added advantage”
The advert was posted on a fake ministry of health and child care nursing intake Facebook account.
The health ministry has dismissed the advert and issued a statement warning the public about fraudsters using the government’s nursing application portal and said government and the health ministry are not in any partnership with a foreign or local institution for nurse training.
“Beware of fraudsters. Please note that the Ministry of Health and Child Care advertises through the press for all intakes,” read the statement issued on Friday.
