In a statement dated July 24, 2018 and signed by Felix Nyante, registrar of the council, presented the quota for the 2018/2019 academic calender.

"I would want to caution Principals and Heads of Institutions running nursing and midwifery programmes to adhere to the quota," the statement said.

The statement comes on the heels of a new admission policy adopted by stakeholders last year.


"Any school who flouts the quota policy will be severely dealt with," the statement warned.

The decision to revert to the quota system was backed by the leadership of the Ghana Registered Nurses Association (GRNA).

President of GRNA, Mr. Kwaku Asante-Krobea explained that health training institutions in the country have in the past few years overpopulated their campuses irrespective of not having the capacity to accommodate them.

"Health training institutions as it is now don’t have the capacity to admit the number of students they did last year but they were doing so because of the pressure of the candidates that were putting in their application and also from other stakeholder institutions” he said.
