Ghana has inaugurated its first Islamic Nursing Training College.
Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia commissioned the College at Aplaku, Accra.
He was joined by the leadership of the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaa, from Ghana and Nigeria, in commissioning the College.
According to Dr. Bawumia, despite the existence of over 90 public nursing training colleges across the country, they are inadequate to meet the growing admission demands of SHS graduates.
He said the private sector, especially Faith based organizations, have played leading roles in complementing government’s efforts at expanding access to nursing training by establishing nursing schools.
“The Islamic Nursing Training School, is a welcome addition to these schools, and it will offer more admission opportunities to young Ghanaians aspiring to be nurses.”
“I commend leadership of the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamma, as well as all those who contributed towards building the Islamic Nursing Training School.”
