WCEA is sending this communication on behalf of NMCN
As per the recent communication from the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria, with effect from 1st January 2023, WCEA is implementing new subscription plans for nurses and midwives in Nigeria and Diaspora as part of MCPDP and license renewal.

Nurses and Midwives working in Nigeria can obtain up to 3 credit units as part of MCPDP through WCEA.

Those in Diaspora must obtain a minimum 3 credits units via WCEA before renewing their license in Nigeria and you will be able to benefit from courses which can be used for license renewal in the country where you are currently practicing (ANCC accredited & Royal Colleges in the UK etc).

Here are some of the benefits of the platform:

- Study at your own pace, from the comfort of your home/workplace, saving you travel, time & money.
- Maintain competencies and learn new skills.
- Study online & offline (Mobile App & Online Platform).
- 100's of new accredited courses covering all specialty areas.
- Access to weekly webinars & African research articles.

WCEA subscription fee successfully added.

Subscription for a year is #10,000 meaning after you obtained your 30 contact hours and successfully renew your license with the certificates, the certificates will no longer be valid after one year. Then if you do two years subscription with #20,000 you will be given one year free, making 3years; meaning that after using the certificates to renew the certificate will expire 3 years after.

Good luck to all of you. But just know that because you paid the subscription fee you will not be given the certificate free without completing and passing each courses, certificates will be issued when you successfully completed and pass the courses, and the requirements for 3CEU is still 30 contact hours
