World Health Organisation #WHO Trains Nurses in #Bauchi #CrossRiver

The World Health Organisation has awarded N9.75 million scholarships to 26 students in Bauchi and Cross River states to study diploma in nursing.

The scholarship awarded to 16 students from Bauchi and 10 from Cross River, is the first phase of a five-year project to train health workers in the country.

WHO representative Rui Gama Vaz said the global health was getting support to help establish a functional registry of Nigeria's health workforce that will "track and account for all health workers in the country."

The health workers are expected to become tutors after they complete their one-year studies in nursing and midwifery to help health training institutions get accreditation from regulatory agencies.

WHO donated computers, printers, buses and demonstration equipments to nursing schools in the two states to aid teaching of nursing.
