Sierra Leonean 50 Nurses and Midwives Complete 2 Year Program in Ghana by Idowu Olabode : November 15, 2019, 11:27:09 PM
 Fifty (50) Sierra Leonean nurses and midwives who arrived in Ghana in 2018 to undergo a 2-year training and education in Registered Nursing and Registered Midwifery programmes have successfully completed and sat for the online licensing examination conducted by the Nursing and Midwifery Council. The examination took place simultaneously in the computer labs at the Council’s Head Office and NMTC, Koforidua.



Twenty five of the candidates were given training in General Nursing at the Nursing and Midwifery Training College, Koforidua, while the rest were given Midwifery Training at the Nursing and Midwifery Training College, Korle-Bu.

As the programmehas come to an end, successful candidates will be given Diploma in General Nursing and Diploma in Midwifery by the University of Cape Coast. The Nursing and Midwifery Council will also present certificates of Registration to candidates who will pass the online licensing exams.



According to the Registrar of the Council, Mr. Felix Nyante, the successful candidates in the licensing examination will be inducted on December 17, 2019 at the Council’s Head Office before they return to their Country.

The Candidates after the exams were thankful to God for seeing them through the 2-year programme successfully and pledged their preparedness to raise the flag of Nursing and Midwifery profession high when they go back to their Country.

It will be recalled the in 2018, Ghana’s Ministry of Health in partnership with the Nursing and Midwifery Council signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Mèdecins Sana Frontières (MSF) to train 50 Sierra Leonean nurses and midwives in Ghana.

The training formed part of MSF’s strategy to develop the required level of Human Resources for a proposed 160 bed Pediatric and Obstetric Hospital in Kenema, Sierra Leone, which was hard hit during the Ebola outbreak.
