Madam Hussainatu Kanu said nursing is not a dumping ground for school dropouts but a profession that deals with the lives of people. Therefore she stressed whosoever wishes to enter into the nursing or midwifery school must have the required result i.e. 5 passes from the West African Senior Secondary Examination Certificate (WASSCE) including Mathematics or English Language.

She explained that these illegal nursing schools are posing a serious threat to the image of the nursing profession and there is also the risk of unnecessary deaths arising from malpractices.

She said the nursing and midwifery is a unique profession that requires a properly established process and structure to be put in place before its establishment.

The Chief Nursing Officer said one way to address the falling standards of practice is to put proper mechanism in place to improve on the current quantity of nursing by curtailing the number of illegal nursing institutions and mushroom schools in the country.

She said there are thirteen (13) accredited nursing and Midwifery Training Schools in the country with 5 in the North, 5 in the Western Area, 2 in the Southern Region and 2 in the Eastern Region.


She said it was offence for anyone or organization to open a nursing training institution without prior approval and accreditation by the Nurses and Midwifery Board.
