Nursing and Midwifery Training Institutions in Ghana To Run Degree Programmes

For some time now, the nursing and midwifery training institutions in Ghana have only been offering both certificate and diploma programmes ranging from two years to three years respectively.

The recent recommendation coming from the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Ghana (NMC) is for the various Nursing and Midwifery Training institutions to upgrade their diploma courses to bachelor degree courses.

Mr. Felix Nyante, the 6th registrar of the council, said that this strategic move from a diploma to a degree is to help improve the practice of nursing and midwifery in Ghana. This is deemed a necessary move looking at how healthcare practice and the needs of the general public have changed over time.

This he made known during the credentialing forum convened by the council to evaluate and validate the standards of operations of the various training institutions before granting them the requisite accreditation.

He added that the act of credentialing these institutions helps to assess the problems that need to be addressed in these institutions and ensure that the right things are done to promote the implementation of quality improvement mechanisms.

Another important thing that came up was the fact that the council had made plans to categorize nursing and midwifery training institutions and various universities offering these programmes. This is to ensure some sort of healthy competition and challenge each of them to strive for excellence.

During the forum, the Catholic University College and the FLOSAM Institute of Nursing and Midwifery and Allied Health Sciences were assessed by a five-member panel. Some of the issues that were identified and needs urgent address included:

  • The need to expand their computer laboratories
  • Providing students with more spacious classrooms
  • Providing adequate office cabinets for the tutors
