Nurses protest new certification guidelines by NMCN, demanding welfare reforms

Nurses from the National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives (NANNM), FCT Chapter, have protested against the newly introduced verification certification guidelines by the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria (NMCN).

The NMCN circular, released on Feb. 7, imposes a requirement for nurses to have a minimum of two years of post-qualification experience before obtaining a verification certificate to practice abroad.

This follows the deactivation of the council’s verification portal in December 2023.
