Foreign Educated Nurse Registration Process in Nigeria

It is mandatory that Foreign Trained Nurses register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria (NMCN) and obtain licence to practice prior to their professional practice in Nigeria.

This process may take minimum of six (6) months and maximum of eighteen (18) months depending on your course of study and institution/country of training.

This is commonly called Adaptation Program.

As a Foreign Trained Nurse, one out of the many challenges I faced is access to timely and accurate information, I remember combing through the internet at a point during the process and found only few information that addressed my concern, some are not even updated and trying to reach out to get accurate information lead to a dead end.

The whole process can be tiring and cumbersome if you do not have access to timely and accurate information especially getting someone that has gone through the whole process to take you by the hand or step by step through it.

You would have started the process with little or no information or you might be midway through it before you get connected with others applying for the same.

The Nigerian Association of Foreign Trained Nurses-NAFTRANS are sincerely working to bridge this gap but most do not even know about the community till they are almost done with their application process.

Join the NAFTRANS telegram page here for timely information

This article is written to help you navigate the journey and take your hands through the whole process based on my personal experience.

And your journey will also be made easy with this guide.

Read on!

BELOW IS A SUMMARY OF THE WHOLE PROCESS.

  • Filling and submission of application form Click here to register
  • Evaluation of Certificates with the federal ministry of education
  • Undergo screening
  • Posting to selected institution
  • On-site training cum clinical posting
  • Write the licensing and registration examination
  • Apply for registration and licensing if you successfully pass the licensing exams.
  • One-year internship.

These will be explained subsequently in this article, read on.

Cost Breakdown

  • Application fee ₦6,000
  • Evaluation of Certificates ( School Leaving and Degree certificate with the federal ministry of education ₦5,000) P.S: this can vary and depends on if you are doing it yourself or you are using an agent or someone else. If you are going to the Federal Ministry Of Education yourself, you will have to consider the cost of transportation and accomodation in Abuja.
  • Adaptation Program Fee ₦188,000
  • Accomodation fee ( based on location and proximity to the institution)
  • Miscellaneous e.g precouncil examination fee, uniform, transportation, feeding and so on.

Cumulative of above ₦300k (₦300,000 plus)

P.S: These are the estimated costs (rounded up) To at the time that I enrolled for this program (2021) the above is subjected to change according to the necessary bodies and party involved as well as the economic situation.

🔸Once your evaluation is completed, you will need to go back to Federal Ministry of Education’s (FME) to pick up your evaluation letter. This typically takes between 3 days to 2 weeks.

🔸Take this letter to the Nursing council head office submission. N.B: you should go with a photocopy of this letter so they can stamp it at the office for acknowledgement that you submitted it there as a precautionary measure.

🔸 You will have to wait for invitation to attend your screening by the NMCN. The screening maybe physical or virtual depending on the decision of the council committee in charge.

🔸The institution will give you a resumption date which may be few weeks from when you submitted the letter so you will be required to make arrangements for accommodation this is an on-site program so you will be required to be on campus most of the time.  

You are required to have 80% of attendance and will also have to go for mandatory 6 weeks clinical postings at attached teaching hospital.
