The Principal of Ondo State School of Nursing Akure and now HOD Medical-Surgical Nursing Department, UNIMED Ondo who handed over the School to the University, four days ago has been recognized by the Ondo State Senior Staff Club.

At an elaborate ceremony held yesterday in Akure the capital of Ondo State, Dr (Mrs) Edward M.I bagged Career Excellence Award in recognition of her commitment to improving Nursing education and career development in the Ondo State Civil Service.

Dr (Mrs) Edward Mary Idowu  who assumed office as the principal of School of Nursing, Akure in 2015 began her Nursing journey in 1989 when she gained admission into OAUTHC School of Nursing, Wesley Guild Ilesa where she graduated in 1992 and became a Registered Nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery council of Nigeria. She immediately proceeded to Ondo State School of Midwifery, Igbatoro Road Akure for her Post Basic Midwifery program in 1993 where she graduated and became a Registered Midwife in 1994 according to findings by

Not wanting to stay at the crowded bottom ladder of nursing profession in Nigeria, Dr. (Mrs) Edward Mary Idowu enrolled for her Nursing Degree at the prestigious Nursing department in Nigeria- University of Ibadan where she graduated in 1999. She later returned to the institution in 2008 for her Master degree which she completed in no distant time.

Not satisfied with an average professional life, Dr (Mrs) Edward returned back to her alma mater in pursuance of her PhD in 2010.  She defiled all odds to complete her course in 2017.

Dr (Mrs) Edward has served as NMCN Examiner at various times. She is also a course facilitator at the Nursing Department, National Open University of Nigeria among others. She is equally an astute writer and Nurse researcher who has had several publications in both local and international Journals to her credit. Two of her research works include:

*Perception of Objective Structured Clinical Examination and Traditional Practical Examination in Assessment of Nursing Students Clinical Competencies by Nursing Students in South West Nigeria published in International Journal of Medical Research in 2016.

*Relationship between School Quality and Student’s Performance in Selected Schools of Nursing in South-West Nigeria published in IOSR Journal of Nursing and Health Science.

Her achievement thus far placed her as the only Nurse among 15 outstanding civil servants celebrated by the Club in Ondo State.
