Health Workers Kick As Nursing Council Introduces New Rules

Nigerian health professionals, including nurses, have condemned the new requirements set by the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria (NMCN) for anyone wishing to verify their certificates with overseas nursing boards or councils.

The new standard requires Nigerian nurses and other health workers seeking verification of certificates to foreign nursing boards or councils to have two years post-qualification experience.

In a memo two days ago, the council said the updated criteria and procedures must be fulfilled by all applicants seeking the verification of certificate(s) to international nursing boards/councils.

However, nurses and other healthcare professionals have referred to the guidelines and standards as a violation of human rights.
