Which University Offers Nursing?
All Universities, whether Federal, Private or State Owned Universities can offer Nursing, but not all do. This is because not all Universities are able to meet up with the minimum requirements set by the National University Council (NUC) and Nursing and Midwifery council of Nigeria (NMCN) for this course.
Only Universities able to meet up with the minimum requirements can accept student through JAMB or any other acceptable admission process to Study Nursing, the good thing about Nursing science is that, aside Universities, you can also become a Nurse or a Midwife by applying to any of the Nursing Schools in Nigeria.
The only limitation is that, the degree awarded is not a BSc certificate, since this post is to cover Universities offering Nursing and not Nursing schools in Nigeria, I will not dwell much on this, but will cover it in a later blog post.
