UPDATE: Resolution On The Proposed Higher National Diploma At The Nursing Leadership Conference Kaduna 2017
Date Posted: 02/Apr/2017
Highlights
-Students to spend 4 years in Nursing College and write RN Exam in HND1
-Students to go for 1year internship before NYSC
-Students to graduate with RN,RM/RPHN and HND (Nursing)
 
At the just concluded leaders conference in Kaduna, we resolved as follows :
 
That BNSc should be the ultimate for all Nurses
 
That where possible...
Schools of Nursing school should be absorbed by the University in the locality
 
That other schools that could not be absorbed by any University should be converted to Colleges of Nursing to award academic certificates
 
That having a professional qualification without academic qualification is the major problem of Nursing education which the Council intend to correct
 
That Nursing education cannot be operated outside the educational policy of Nigeria which is based on 6-3-3-4 system. There schools of Nursing are obsolete
 
That students admitted into colleges of Nursing shall spend a total of 4yrs as ND1,ND2,HND1,and HND2. RN examination shall be taken at HND 1 while RM or RPHN shall be at HND 2. Thereafter, the graduate of the school shall go for IT(Clinical posting ) for one year before NYSC.
 
The graduates of College of Nursing shall hold RN, RM/RPHN and HND.
 
The graduates of University shall hold RN, RM, RPHN and BNSc
 
That if the Federal Government eventually resolved the dichotomy between HND and BSc then the two will then be at par.
