Nursing is a competitive career choice in Nigeria, especially among the female gender. The vast number of opportunities available in the field makes it one of the most selected course options during JAMB examination registrations.

While it is majorly seen as a field for the girl child – mainly because of the compassionate nature of the job – of recent, boys have begun to take interest in nursing as well.

Today, male nurses are a common sight in hospitals across the country. The growing interest in nursing means that there will be a growing interest in locations of nursing schools across Nigeria where interested individuals can go and study the profession.

Here in this post, we will bring you a complete list of all accredited nursing schools according to their states in Nigeria.

This list also includes all nursing departments/faculties in Nigeria universities. The list is an official list and is gotten from the official website of The Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria – www.nmcn.gov.ng.
