The Nursing and Midwifery Council (N&MC) of Ghana together with a consortium composed by CINOP Global and Advisory Services (The Netherlands) and Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST, Ghana) have initiated a four-year project to strengthen the capacity of N&MC to conduct licensing examination through the use of advanced ICT solutions.

The project, which began November 1, 2016 would ensure that the conduct of licensing examination is even more efficient, effective and credible.

In support of the project, the Dutch government through the Capacity Building programme NICHE of Nuffic has awarded a grant of €992.250,00 as funding for the project.

It responds to a national priority policy, supported by the Embassy of the Kingdom of The Netherlands in Ghana, in increasing access to improved healthcare, including private healthcare, in order to curb the number of maternal deaths and disabilities to infants  

During a courtesy visit to the Embassy on November 10, the project Management Team shared their vision on the way forward and expressed their gratitude to the Dutch government.

The Team also said that they were much prepared to embark on the project to the benefit of the Ghanaian society.

The Registrar of the Council, Mr. Felix Nyante, expressed that the Council would ensure the nation-wide roll-out of the project to all examination centres by making available additional funding to complement the project goals.
