The Nursing and Midwifery Council (N&MC) is in talks with the University of Development Studies (UDS), Tamale to establish satellite campuses for practitioners in the Yendi and Gushegu Districts, Registrar of N&MC has said
Mr Felix Nyante speaking at a separate Staff durbar at the district hospitals in Yendi and Gushegu said the decision to set up the satellite campuses is to make tertiary education accessible to students in the area
“One of the reasons that informed the discussion to establish the campuses in those areas was not only to make nursing and midwifery education accessible to the people alone but to cut down the hectic time students went through by travelling for long distances in search of tertiary education.”
The Dean of School of Nursing and Midwifery, University of Development Studies, Dr Vida Yakong in her address said the setup campuses would allow practitioners to upgrade their nursing and midwifery education.
She emphasized that more training programmes will be rolled out to offer solutions to the myriad of health challenges facing the country.
