    • Mag,

      It depends on the course you want to apply to study at UI.

      Usually, you must have the correct O’level subject combination and the department’s direct entry requirements.

    • Please don’t abandon your program. Please finish it up and then apply for Direct Entry into Nursing in any University. The experience you will have as a Registered Midwife cannot not be compared to those who just started out from Year in the University and are meeting you in Year 2. By Year 4 or 5 in the University depending on when the University write their council exams you can then write your exams and get your RN(Registered Nurse) Certificate and also RPHN(Registered Public Health Nurse) certificate. Thank you

      You can be admitted with your course but the JAMB portal for this year has already closed so it may no longer be possible this year.

      Can you clarify which of the Federal University of Health Science you are referring to?
      There’s one located in Azare and one in Otukpo.

  5. 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.

  6. For an individual who has an ND from a college of health sciences (JCHEW), what category of license does he or she go for, hence there are number of license.
    Thanks.

    • Hello, Immanuel

      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.
