The University of Medical Sciences (UNIMED), Ondo City, Ondo State has received full accreditation from the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria (NMCN) for the Bachelor of Nursing Science programme.
Temitope Oluwatayo of the institution’s PR unit in a statement obtained by The Precision NG, stated that the full accreditation status is for a period of five (5) years with a yearly intake of Seventy-Five (75) students, after which the Department will be reassessed.
“The approval was conveyed in a letter which was addressed to the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Adesegun Fatusi, by the Secretary-General and Registrar of the Council, Faruk Umar Abubakar, on Thursday, June 10, 2021.
“A yearly intake of Seventy-Five (75) students, as approved by the NMCN, represent a fifty percent (50%) increase in the total number of candidates that will be admitted for the programme in subsequent academic sessions.
“This development follows the visit of members of the Council to the University in February 2021 and it means that Nursing Students of the University who are presently in 500 level will graduate as and when due,” the statement noted.
