Today, the 27th day of June 2022, the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria (NMCN) released a circular stating the approval and implementation of computer based test (CBT) for all her professional examinations starting with the Midwifery examination slated for September 13th-16th, 2022.
This decision was reached during the 58th General Meeting of the Board of the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria held on 23rd-24th June.
According to the NMCN, this is in line with global best practices in promoting and maintaining excellence in Nursing education and practice.
The NMCN are prepared for this implementation as they have identified dedicated CBT Centres across the six geopolitical zones of the country where the examination will take place.
Also, there shall be sensitization on the CBT examination implementation strategies at the forthcoming training of the Heads of Nursing/Midwifery training institutions and their focal persons.
It is worthy of note that the CBT examinations will contain theory and objectives questions just as the pen and paper examination used to have.
