The Nursing and Midwifery Council of Ghana (N&MC) has commenced the process to select applicants who submitted applications to be admitted into various public health training institutions for the 2021/2022 academic year.
The Council’s Deputy Registrar, Mrs Philomina Woolley announced this at a 3-day selection meeting of applicants into the public health training institutions for the 2021/2022 academic year organized by the health training institutions Unit of the Ministry of Health.
Speaking at the meeting, Mrs Philomina called on all health training institutions to embrace technology and adapt to the contemporary practice of teaching and learning saying “Technology will be a “game-changer.”
She pointed out that the use of technology in administration, teaching and learning had become the norm in modern-day educational delivery.
“There is the need for training institutions to invest in that area to stay relevant and contribute to the health needs of the country,” the Deputy Registrar of the Nursing and Midwifery Council stated.
Mrs Woolley stressed that effective leadership is both a critical and an indispensable component of any functional administrative system adding that “organizational success depends ultimately on the qualities of its leaders and state of an organization is a reflection of the dynamism of its leader.”
The N&MC official urged the Heads of the Institutions to adopt the developmental leadership style to get their staff to work with them. This she said will make the heads of institutions understand the weakness and strengths of their staff.
