According to the 2016 accreditation status report by the National Universities Commission (NUC), obtained by, only 25 of the universities in Nigeria currently run Nursing programs.

The Quality Assurance Department of the NUC is in charge of accrediting courses in the universities.

For a course to be accredited, the NUC says, it must meet the Benchmark Minimum Academic Standards (BMAS) that has been drawn up by the commission.

Such a course, officials say, must have qualified faculty members, good learning environment and adequate teaching materials – equipment, books and journals.
Courses with full accreditation are due for re-accreditation every five years nuring which some courses might lose or retain their certification. Some fully accredited courses could be slammed with interim accreditation if their facilities and faculty are found to have depreciated.

Courses with interim accreditation are due for reassessment after two years, and back to back interim accreditation automatically leads to loss of accreditation.

The NUC says accreditation of courses is necessary to ensure “employers and other members of the community that Nigerian  graduates of all academic programmes have attained an acceptable level of competency in their areas of specialization.”

The commission says it is also important to certify courses to assure “the international community that the programmes offered in Nigerian Universities are of high standards and that graduates of the institutions are adequate for employment and further studies.”

According to the NUC, pre-accreditation activities include drawing up a list of academic programmes to be certified, compilation of list of panel chairmen/members, time-tabling, budgeting and organizing the accreditation coordination meeting for panel chairmen and members in a simulation workshop.

The post-accreditation activities, according to the commission, include analyzing accreditation reports (technical and administrative), ranking of programmes and universities based on their accreditation status, publishing of accreditation status of programmes, issuance of certificates to programmes that earned Full and Interim accreditation results.

It should be noted that Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria also conducts it own accreditation exercise on universities offering Nursing programs but the current list of Council's approved universities is not available at this time. Below is the NUC accreditation report for Nursing programs :
