94% of nursing candidates pass licensing exams

Ninety Four per cent of candidates who sat for the Post Basic Nursing online licensing examination in January this year have passed, according to the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Ghana.

A statement from the council said the results of the students, as approved by the 14th Governing Board, had been released online.

Candidates are therefore expected to visit the regional offices of the council from today to obtain a result-checking card to access their results online.

In all, 250 students from the Critical Care Nursing, Ophthalmic Nursing, Peri-Operative Nursing, and Public Health Nursing took part in the exams.

According to the statement, candidates who failed the online licensing examination would be given the opportunity to join the next batch of candidates to sit for the examination in July.

The statement said for the first time in the history of the council, it had developed a results-checking system to enable candidates who sat for the exam to check their results using the council’s online web portal.

The online results-checking, which forms part of the digitisation agenda of the government, was part of the online licensing examination project, NICHE 261 which was initiated in 2016, it said.

“The council, together with a consortium composed by CINOP Global and Advisory7 Services and the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology initiated the NICHE 261 project to strengthen the capacity of the council to conduct credible examination through the use of advanced ICT solutions”

“In support of the project, NUFFIC through the embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands provided financial support,” the statement said.
