Ondo State school of Nursing scored 100  percent  in the  recently released  result by the Nursing and Midwifery Council of  Nigeria  (NMCN) just as the  State  Government has described the feat  as  a reflection of its investment  in the  school.

The State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Dayo Adeyanju stated this at the 2016/2017 Matriculation Ceremony of the school held in Akure.

According to him, government’s investment was to provide qualitative education for the students.

“I am excited that the management and staff of the school  have keyed into this vision. The result is amazing. In the last examination, they had 100 percent which has never happened in the history of the school.

“We must give it to the present government which had invested heavily in the school and I am happy that we are getting results,” he noted.

Adeyanju who affirmed that Nursing forms one of the pillars of a successful healthcare delivery system, posited that that is the reason the state government embarked on the provision of several health sector reforms programmes and  put in place structures geared towards quality healthcare.

To this end, he assured that the state government, through the ministry will continue to pay attention to the training of nurses in order to ensure that high level professionals are available to provide qualitative healthcare services in the state.

He therefore informed that in line with this principle, the quality of students being admitted for training has improved significantly comparable to that of any university in Nigeria.

The Commissioner congratulated the matriculating students for the rare privilege and wished them success in their chosen career.

Also speaking, Director of Nursing Services in the Ministry, Mrs. Alice Ogundele, who implored the students to be noble hardworking and shun social  vices, advised  them to adhere strictly to the  ethics of the profession.

While  saying  hardwork is the key to success, she  noted that they should  avoid  distractions  and uncomplimentary  activities  which may have negative impact  on their  training.

Earlier, the Principal of the school, Mrs. M. I  Edward   commended the state government for making the school proud through its  many  achievements.

Edward  affirmed  that the  state  government  has continually  prioritised  the general  needs of the school, especially the  prompt  attention  given to maintain the accreditated status  of the school.
