INFO FOR UNIVERSITIES ON IMPLEMENTING THE NMCN CIRCULAR ON ABSORBING NURSING SCHOOLS.
I wish to share on this forum that the Federal University Oye – Ekiti (FUOYE) has finally assimilated the SON, Federal Teaching Hospital, Ido, Ekiti State.
The management of the hospital/SON and that of FUOYE have been engaging on the workability of the NMCN circular since about five month ago.
The Senate of FUOYE finally ratified the absorption in it Senate meeting held on 29th July, 2021.
FUOYE Nursing faculty will be sharing the SON physical facility for the next three years till the SON graduates all sets of SON students on ground.
However, FUOYE will take final possession of the facility after the graduation of all sets of SON students.
Though FUOYE is yet to approach NMCN for accreditation, plan is in top gear to do this as FUOYE planned its Nursing programme to be of very high standard.
I shall this here for other university nursing programmes may be interested in carrying out similar assimilation.
