This programme was given an approval in the 2019/2020 academic session.
University-based nursing education is internationally and nationally acclaimed as the only educational system that can produce professional nurses. It has been endorsed by the National Universities Commission (NUC) and the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria (NMCN).
