At its 114th Executive Council Meeting, The Honorable Commissioner, Ministry of Health reminded Council, through contents of this memorandum that, the report from the Government Transition Committee revealed the need for the establishment of additional Schools of Nursing in the State. Gwarzo town and Gaya town were identified as suitable for such laudable development.
Nevertheless, the Ministry of Health still considered it pertinent to submit an update on the issue for consideration by Council. Thus:
Proposed school of Nursing, Gwarzo;
i. In 2013, the present administration identified a site adjacent to School of Environmental Studies, along Gwarzo- Dayi Road for establishing a School of Nursing.
ii. A land donated to the Government by Alhaji Isma'ila Gwarzo (Former National Security Security Adviser) exists and awaits utilization for the envisaged purpose.
iii. That three (3) housing units/Staff quarters were constructed up to DPC level.
iv. That the donor of the land pledged to construct an administrative block whenever the project commences.
v. Foundation for the perimeter wall fence for the proposed School has already been executed.
Proposed School of Nursing, Gaya;
The Gaya Local Government Council has provided a piece of land in Gaya town for the establishment of the proposed School of Nursing
Essentially, the Ministry of Health deemed it necessary to notify Council of the need to establish more Schools of Nursing in addition to the ones currently being established in Madobi and Gazawa LGCAs. This is worthwhile because healthcare services delivery require professionally trained personnel. A budget or against 2014 proposed budget is advisable. Council appreciatively noted and kept the presentation in view
