This is to inform the the general public, especially the teeming holders of NABTEB certificates as well as prospective candidates and stakeholders, that the Board
of the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria has approved the use of NABTEB Ordinary level Certificates (NTC & NBC) for
admission for Nursing and Midwifery education in Nigeria.

This information was given via a letter, dated 11th of June, 2018, with reference number N&MCN/SG/RO/067/NBTEB/Vol.1/57, from the Secretary-General/
Registrar of the Council. It states that the decision was reached at the Board’s 44th General Meeting held in April, 2018, in Abuja.

This is a laudable milestone in our collective drive for general acceptance of vocational and technical education in the quest to
enhance human capacity and facilitate sustainable, technological and national
development.

NOTE: With the effort been made by the indefatigable Madam Registrar/Chief Executive, Professor Mrs Ifeoma Mercy
Isiugo-Abanihe,very shortly the challenges of rejection of NABTEB Certificates in a very few higher institutions of learning in Nigeria will become a thing of the past, that we shall no longer remember, by the grace of God Almighty.
