Demands hike in their stipend
Visakha City, January 5, 2010
The strike by the students of the Government Nursing School here, demanding hike in their stipend, entered ninth day on Tuesday.
The students continued their relay fast programme and patient care in the KGH and other government hospitals suffered to some extent. Government staff nurses and head nurses expressed solidarity and support to the nursing students and took out a rally. They also boycotted duty for two hours as part of a State wide programme in support of student nurses.
