Nursing and midwifery institutions in the country that are not in good standing or in bad condition will not be given accreditation, the Registrar of the Ghana Nursing and Midwifery (N&MC), Mr Felix Nyante has said.
Mr Felix Nyante said the introduction of credentialing as part of the accreditation process by the Council will ensure that schools satisfy all regulatory standards.
‘’The credentialing will help determine the issues to be addressed in the institutions and promote the implementation of quality assurance mechanisms’’, the Registrar of the Nursing Council stated.
The Registrar in light of the above has urged nursing and midwifery training institutions to have quality assurance systems in place in order to address deficiencies and improve upon their training and education.
Mr Nyante made these known during an operational visit to the Nursing and Midwifery Training College, Cape-Cost as part of his tour in the region.
