The Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria (NMCN)’s team on accreditation visit has commended Trinity University for the quality of its Nursing Science programme. Making the remark at its exit briefing after a three-day personnel and resource assessment, the leader of the delegation, Professor Adesola Ogunfowokan, said: “Looking at the Faculty of Nursing, you have done well.”
The team drew the conclusion after reviewing the curriculum, staff compliment, laboratories, classrooms, library, facilities, hostel accommodation, relationships with other health institutions guided by executed MOU’s and students’ activities in the faculty.
However, the team also pointed out that while what they had seen was a good starting point for the University, there were areas to improve on. Such areas include the need to have professors in the faculty, to have Nursing Education as a department, to review the present curriculum having run it for five years now, to reduce the workload of the 200 level students, to make the laboratories more professionally structured and complimented, to add more numbers to the models and specimens, to build up faculty library in place, to make the hostel accommodation more supportive for the students, to provide fire proof cabinet in the Dean’s office and to provide a car attached to the office of the Dean.
Responding, the acting Vice Chancellor, Professor Clement Olusegun Olaniran Kolawole, appreciated the team for such a comprehensive report. He reassured the team that every point they had raised would be duly attended to
