An award presentation to the Registrar at the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria was stalled over the week as representatives of Nursingworld Nigeria who were at the Council head office to make the presentation met his absence.
Nurse Jude Chiedu and Onyebo Emeka who were in Abuja visited the council office twice but were not able to make the award presentation as a call to the Registrar's P.A confirmed he was not immediately available.
In a remarkable feat, Alhaji Faruk Umar Abubakar clinched the Nursingworld 'Nurse of the Year Award' for the second time in a row. You would recall that his outstanding performance for 2017 didn’t go unrecognized and he emerged the 2017 Nurse of the Year.
After scrutinizing all nominations under consideration, He again emerged 2018 Nurse of the year.
The Nursingworld Nigeria NURSE OF THE YEAR AWARD recognizes outstanding and extraordinary contributions to the Nursing profession and honours any nurse who distinguishes himself, going above and beyond in the preceding year
