Patiala, June 14

The dream of getting a regular job for a 29-year-old contractual nurse of Government Rajindra Hospital shattered on Friday when she tested positive for Covid-19. Reason: She will not be able to appear for her written examination for the regular post of nurse, which is scheduled to be held in Faridkot on June 21.

The nurse, who joined the hospital in 2018 as a contractual employee, had been preparing for the exam ever since 411 posts of regular nurse were advertised by the Director, Research and Medical Education.

The nurse, talking to The Tribune over the phone, said she would study regularly after her duty hours. "I am sad that I wouldn't be able to appear in the exam for which I had been preparing for month."

Pleading for a chance to appear in the examination from the isolation facility, the nurse said, "Rajindra hospital is one of the centres for examination. Therefore, the authorities should allow me to attempt the paper from the isolation facility here. I don't want to miss this long-awaited opportunity of taking the exam."

However, the nurse said she had not lost hope and would continue to prepare for the examination. "I asked my family members to provide me books so that I can continue with my studies," she added.
