The Management of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (N&MC) says it will in due course grade health training institutions in the country from A to F base on their student’s (nurses and midwives) performance.
Speaking at a credentialing forum for two Nursing and Midwifery training institutions, the Registrar of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (N&MC), Mr Felix Nyante said will ensure nurses and midwives are well trained.
Mr Felix Nyante in the light of the above consequently charged Management of the various health training institutions to employ competent and qualified tutors for the courses they are offering.
According to him, poor performance or low grade would mean that a health institution does not have the requisite human and material resources to trained nurses and midwives to deliver quality service to their clients.
The Registrar of Nursing and Midwifery Council further advised health training institutions still offering certificate and diploma programmes to begin the process of upgrading to degree-awarding institutions.
“The quality of health care given to patients depends on the quality of training received by health care professionals,” Mr Felix Nyante stated.
