Edo College of Nursing’ll groom manpower to improve quality healthcare – Obaseki

The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has promised that the newly upgraded state-owned College of Nursing Sciences would develop the human capacity to sustain ongoing reforms in the healthcare system and improve access to quality and affordable healthcare services to Edo people.

The Edo State College of Nursing Sciences, which was recently reaccredited to offer three-year nursing programmes by the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria (NMCN), used to be the Edo State School of Nursing and Midwifery. The College, hitherto, was an eyesore before the governor took office, deploying resources to ensure the upgrade of the institution.

The revamp process has seen to the rebuilding of the school and its restructuring into a world-class college with state-of-the-art facilities specializing in nursing sciences. New lecture halls have been erected; offices have been remodeled; laboratories have been fitted with topnotch equipment and a new management structure has taken foot.

Obaseki, who spoke to journalists in Benin City, reassured that his administration will sustain investment in the state’s healthcare system, ensuring the delivery of affordable, quality and efficient health services to the people.

According to him, “The lessons of COVID-19 taught us that if one is ill, the person has no control of where to get healthcare from. COVID-19 has taught us a lot and motivated us to decide as a state to re-establish our healthcare system and make Edo State a medical hub.
