Mr. Felix Nyante, Registrar of Nursing and Midwifery Council has announced that the Council is in talks with the University of Development Studies, Tamale and particularly the School of Nursing and Midwifery to set up satellite campuses for practitioners in the Yendi and Gushegu Districts.

Mr. Nyante stated that one of the reasons that informed the discussion to establish the campuses in those areas was not only to make nursing and midwifery education accessible to the people alone but to cut down the hectic time students went through by travelling for long distances in search of tertiary education.

Mr. Nyante made this known at separate Staff durbars at the district hospitals in Yendi and Gushegu.

The Dean of School of Nursing and Midwifery, University of Development Studies, Dr. Vida Yakong in her address via telephone stated that the plan to set up campuses in various strategic places would allow practitioners to upgrade their nursing and midwifery education and also make it more accessible to the practitioners.

She emphasized that more training programmes will be rolled out to offer solutions to the myriad of health challenges facing the country.
