The Nursing and Midwifery Council has begun issuing the new PIN/AIN cards to practitioners. The new Card currently has five-year validity and replaces the card with three-year validity.

Additionally, the new cards feature enhanced security measures that will reduce the likelihood of them being compromised.

The underlying technology for the online payment and PIN/AIN renewal could support greater and greater capabilities for a long time to come.

All cards with the three-year validity will be phased out by March 31, 2021

As the world faces the challenge of tackling the COVID-19 pandemic, it is instrumental to ensure that the Janitorial Staff we work with gain the correct information about this illness; its risks, means of prevention, and also the myths surrounding it.

In view of this, a training programme was organized by the N&MC COVID-19 Team for the Janitorial Staff of the Council.

The participants who numbered about 20 were given practical training on the WHO COVID-19 protocols which included but not limited to handwashing techniques, sanitizer application, disposal of waste and new and effective ways of cleaning the premises to ensure safety of the entire Staff and themselves.

The training forms part of the entire training programme for Staff and other Stakeholders scheduled by the COVID-19 Technical Team of the Council So far, in addition to this training is the online training on COVID-19 protocol management at the workplace which was held for all Staff on February 1, 2021

It is with joy to announce to our stakeholders and the general public that the Nursing and Midwifery Council has launched a course book for Nursing and Midwifery titled “A history of Nursing and Midwifery in Ghana”

The book was launched on November 20, 2020 by Dr. Janet Ampadu Fofie, Chairperson of the Public Services Commission at the grand durbar of the Council’s 50th anniversary celebration which took place at the Council’s Head Office.

Speaking at the launch, Dr. Otchere Addai-Mensah, member of the 14th Governing Board said the book had addressed all the conflicting view points by outlining series of events that took place in terms of the beginnings of the two professions.

He also encouraged the younger generation to do their part in ensuring that the country looked forward to a far brighter future in the training, education and practice of nursing and midwifery.
