Roberto, writes pediatric nurse. He is angry: “I have studied to become a health care professional, but I work as a warehouse worker”.
Good evening director,
My name is Roberto and I am a nurse for children. I’m tired of being made fun of, I had to leave the profession I was studying to become a warehouse worker because all the hospitals have slammed the door in my face.
They considered me a series B nurse who had regular nurses to fill places in the pediatric wards.
What are they waiting for to join the regular nurses?
And even by acquiring a master’s degree in management of health professions, I was left out. And what does FNOPI do for us nurses?
I thank you and I hope your voice will be heard once and for all.
Roberto, Pediatric Nurse

Unfortunately, the problem of lack of work for pediatric nurses is atavistic and difficult to solve. Many hospitals, especially in the private sector, prefer “normal nurses” as you define them, as they can be employed in different sectors and are interchangeable with each other. FNOPI has been fighting for this professional area for some time, unfortunately the governments and companies themselves are deaf. What can I say, from today we will also make more use of valuing those like you who have studied to be healthcare professionals and deserve to do so. Keep following us.
