Steps taken by a foreign trained Nurse before she was registered last year:
1. She obtained the form @NMCN office in Yaba(she is closer to Lagos), filled and submitted with passport photogrphs and pay the required fees (Note that you have to authenticate your certificate before you proceed. Check below for the authentication procedure )
2. Her transcript was sent directly from her school to NMCN office in Yaba and she confirmed it before it was forwarded to NMCN office in Abuja
3 . She was called for both written and practical exams in Abuja. If you pass the exam,you will proceed to 3 months adaptation course but if you fail,you will be required to undertake a 6months-1year training before you will be allowed to retake the exam
HOW TO AUTHENTICATE YOUR FOREIGN NURSING DEGREE IN NIGERIA
The Federal Ministry of education is responsible for authenticating foreign degrees for Nursing registration and participation in NYSC scheme.
For NMCN registration,you will need to write a letter to FME for your certificate to be recognized. You write a request letter asking them to authenticate your institution in order to be able to process ur licence and you will have to attach a copy of your certificate If your school is on the list of school that the ministry have on it list, your certificate will be endorsed immediately and a certification letter will be given to you.
If your school is not on the list, the ministry will write to the ministry of education in d country where you graduated from to confirm the accreditation status of the said institution.
The letter should be addressed to the honorable minister of education and you will have to submit it by hand.
