Ogun Clamps Down On Illegal Nursing Training Institution


An enforcement team comprising Ogun State Ministry of Health and members of the State Nursing and Midwifery Committee (SNMC), has sealed the Nursing Department of Harvarde College of Science Business and Management Studies, Obada, for offering a degree programme in Nursing Sciences for six years without accreditation from the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria (NMCN).

Speaking during the enforcement exercise, the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Health, Dr. Kayode Oladehinde, stated that such unauthorised programmes contributed to quackery in the profession which posed a threat to the health of the populace, maintaining that the Nursing Department of the institution would remain closed until fully accredited.

Responding, a 300-level student, who wished to remain anonymous,expressed shock at the institution’s lack of accreditation, lamenting the amount of money her parents had spent on the programme.
