The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) has denied media reports that it has banned 25 unaccredited nursing and midwifery institutions running Nurse Assistant (HAC), Nursing or Midwifery programmes in the country.

In a rejoinder, the registrar of the NMC Felix Nyanteh said publication was false.

"The Nursing and Midwifery Council would like to state that the publication is not factual and carries inaccuracies that has the tendency of damaging our hard earned reputation  and the mutual relationship we have with our stakeholders. The council finds the publication as alarming and untrue.”

The rejoinder specifically mentioned that the “golden sunbeam international college of science and technology as mentioned in your publication is one of the schools in the Greater Accra Region which has been accredited by the council to offer registered general nursing programme.”
