The Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria has inducted 53 graduates of nursing from foreign institutions.

Speaking during the induction ceremony  yesterday in Abuja, Registrar of the council, Alhaji Faruk Umar said it was the first time nurses of foreign trained institutions were being formerly inducted into the profession ever-since it started registering nurses trained outside the country.


He said the inducted nurses were trained in Cyprus, Egypt, Ghana, Georgia, India, Jamaica, Jordan, Niger Republic, Philippines, Sudan, Ukraine and United Arab Emirates (UAE).

He said following the approval of new registration policies and procedures which took effect in January 2018, applicants apply and attend a screening interview irrespective of their registration status in the countries of training, and then proceed for a six month adaptation programme in designated centres  in order to prepare for  the council’s professional examination for general nurses.

He said the new set of foreign trained nurses sat for the professional exam in 2018 ,adding that out of 247 applicants that sat for the exam, 100 were successful.

The registrar enjoined the inductees to be willing to learn from their colleagues already working in the clinical areas, accept corrections, avoid unnecessary mistake as well as improve where necessary.

The best performing inductee, Ibitoye Bukola Mary who graduated from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Ghana said the adaptation programme was a great experience with room for improvement in the future.

Prof Olabisi Adejumo of Nursing and the Head of Department of Nursing,  University of Ibadan,   advised the inductees to abide by the ethics of the profession. She also enjoined them to distinguish themselves by showing empathy and eschewing poor attitude towards patients.
