The precarious situation has led many nurses to go into the volatile issue of studying 'allied courses' to nursing, the implication of what we are battling with till today.
The stakeholders have however resolved to assist the association and the nursing and midwifery council of Nigeria in designing a more pragmatic abridged program to provide an academic link for willing and eligible graduates of our schools of nursing to be able to scale up and further their education without let or hindrance. The solution lies in pursuance of degree courses in nursing science for our professional growth and development. Concerted efforts are ongoing and at advanced stage on actualization of NBTE programs to provide academic certification for our registered nurse programs.
Open and distance (NOUN) learning is another way out of our education bottle neck in Nigeria. Therefore, the national Open University is a welcome development and all hands are on deck to clear the problem of accreditation while the graduates of the institution should not entertain any fear.
However, following series of complaints from some nurses that their managements especially in some of the teaching hospitals refused to accept the validity of the degree certificates awarded to nurses by the national open university of Nigeria for the successful completion of the nursing program. NANNM reported the matter to the board of the nursing and midwifery council of Nigeria.
The board deliberated on it, resolved and directed the management of the N&MCN to write a circular to convey the validity of the certificate as the program was approved by the national university commission.
The current suspension of admission into the school for want of a re-new accreditation is another challenge before NANNM and would be pursued accordingly with the cooperation of the N&MCN. The nursing and midwifery council of Nigeria is also working towards undertaking an accreditation visit and ensure that the program meet the expected standard.
