Katsina 1000 Jostle For 50 Admission Slots In Nursing School

Unread post by Kunle Emmanuel » Wed Jul 08, 2015 4:18 am

No fewer than 1000 school certificate holders have obtained admission forms for entrance into Katsina State owned School of Nursing and Midwifery with capacity to admit only 50 students.

Our correspondent gathered that over 1000 prospective candidates sat for the entrance examination conducted by the management of the school preparatory to an interview both of which are requirements for admission into the school.

LEADERSHIP observed that among those jostling for admission into the school are some second year students of National Certificate of Education(NCE) programme who reportedly abandoned their study for a switch over to nursing due to fat salary.

A competent source at the school told our correspondent that the school could only admit 50 students insisting that the figure was the quota allocated to it by the regulatory body for the school, Nurses and Midwifery Council of Nigeria.

“The slot will be distributed one each to the 34 council areas with Katsina municipal having an additional two. The selection will then be based on the performance of each applicant in the written examination.”

Our source said even though the school had all the requirements to operate and has recieved accreditation for most of its courses, it has limited quota allocated to it by the regulatory body due to dearth of tutors. Findings revealed that recent increase in salaries of nurses and other health workers has engendered serious interest in the nursing profession.
