    • Dear Joan,

      The requirements include a good JAMB result and good WAEC grades.

      This qualifies you to apply to a university of your choice.

  1. I am q senior community health student. I am about to finish though. And I would like to apply for a direct entry to university to study nursing. How do I go about it please??

    • Hello Ayo,

      You cannot apply for Nursing via direct entry with a CHEW result.

      The step is to apply for Nursing at JAMB or attend a School of Nursing.

      Let me know if you have any further questions.

    • Hello,

      Nurses or Midwives registered with the N&MCN are eligible to apply for direct entry to study Nursing.

      What university do you want to study Nursing at?

      Let me run a check if they accept Senior Community Health officers for direct entry admission.

      For JCHEW, you will get a practising license as a Community Health Worker.

      You would not get a Nursing license except if you gain admission via Direct Entry to the University.

      Let me know if you have any further questions.
