Hospitals all over the country have been directed not to accept students from unaccredited schools for clinical attachment in their facilities.

The Registrar of the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Ghana, Felix Nyante gave this directive when he toured hospitals and Nursing or Midwifery Training Schools in the Upper West region as part of his support supervisory visit to the region.

Mr. Nyante explained that engaging students from unaccredited schools who do not go through prescribed standards of training is dangerous to the health of Ghanaians.
