List of accredited schools of nursing in Akwa Ibom state.
Undoubtedly, despite the efforts of the country’s ministry of education to eradicate fake institutions, it is known that some very unfortunate members of our society fall prey to fake tertiary institutions. Many of them after having spent years and hard earned money, eventually discover in their final year that their institution is not accredited – How devastating!
In order to protect the interest of other vulnerable citizens, we have undertaken to produce a list of accredited schools of both basic and post basic nursing education in Akwa Ibom state. It would interest you to know that there are other Nursing training schools in the state from which accreditation has been withdrawn and are thus non functional.
Therefore beware of anyone who promise you admission into any nursing school in Akwa Ibom state apart from the ones in the list below.
