The Nursing and Midwifery Council of Ghana has released the results of candidates who sat for the January 2019 Post Basic Nursing online licensing examination.
A statement from the Nursing and Midwifery Council said 94% of the 250 candidates who wrote the examination passed.
“Out of the 250 candidates who sat for the examination 94% passed,” the statement added.
The Council urged the candidates who took part in the exams to visit the Regional Offices of the Council from Wednesday, April 3, 2019, to obtain a result-checking scratch card to access their results online.
The number of candidates from the various post basic nursing training schools who sat for the online licensing examination were made up of the following:
Critical Care Nursing – 68
Ophthalmic Nursing – 59
Peri-Operative Nursing – 75
Public Health Nursing – 48
In the statement, the Registrar of the Council, Mr. Felix Nyante, told those who were unsuccessful in the online licensing examination to join the next batch of candidates to sit for the online licensing examination in July 2019.
CHECKING OF RESULTS ONLINE
The Registrar disclosed that for the first time in the history of the Council, and as part of the digitization agenda of the government, it has developed an online results-checking system which will allow the nursing and midwifery candidates for the licensing examinations to check their results using the Council’s online web portal.
He noted that the online results-checking was part of the online licensing examination project, NICHE 261, which was initiated in 2016.
The Council, together with a consortium composed by CINOP Global and Advisory Services and the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology initiated the NICHE 261 project to strengthen the capacity of the Council to conduct credible examination through the use of advanced ICT solutions.
In support of the project, NUFFIC through the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands provided financial support.

All candidates who sat for the Post Basic Nursing online licensing examination in January 2019 would be required to obtain results checking scratch card from any of the Regional Offices of the Nursing and Midwifery Council across the Country at the cost of Ten Ghana Cedis only (GHC 10.00)
“Please note that the Regional Offices of the Nursing and Midwifery Council are the only designated centres for the sale of the scratch cards,” the statement added.
