A call has been extended to the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria to contribute to the process of increasing admission quota into Nursing and Midwifery for the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso, Oyo State, Nigeria.

The call came from the Vice Chancellor of the University, Professor Michael Olufisayo Ologunde, who maintained that the University had all that was required to be named Centre of excellence in Nursing and Midwifery Training.

Speaking while playing host to members of a team of the Council, led by Professor Milfred John of the University of Calabar who had visited LAUTECH on peer review mission, the VC noted that, “This University belongs to two States-Oyo and Osun, we have two large well equipped Teaching Hospitals, and we are committed to improving on all our facilities even as I make bold to say that we are planning to recruit more lecturers to sustain on our ratings, especially on Nursing.

“Nursing is so important to us. We are determined to train more professionals as our own contribution to helping to reduce quackery. 

“Nobody likes to be treated by quacks when thorough bred professionals are available. It is therefore my appeal to your Council and other stakeholders to allow us train more Nurses and Midwives, so that our otherwise underutilized facilities can be put to adequate use.”

Making his remarks earlier, the leader of the visiting team, Professor Milfred John, had informed the Vice-Chancellor and other members of the University Management that the Council was committed to ensuring that all that goes into training of Nurses and Midwives were right and appropriate at all times.
