NEW DATE RE: RESEARCH WORKSHOP FOR NURSES AND MIDWIVES IN NIGERIA
The Board of Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria at its 42nd General meeting held in Abuja 30th October to 2nd November, 2017 observed that Nurses and Midwives in Nigeria though have access on a daily basis to enormous health related data have not done enough in carrying out research studies and dissemination of research findings. The Board at the above meeting mandated that to improve research and research utilization in healthcare, research workshop should be organized for Nurses and Midwives in Nigeria. The theme of this workshop is ‘Scientific Research: A Tool for Developing Nursing in Nigeria’. The main aim of this workshop is to sharpen the knowledge and skills of nurses and to sensitize them on the value of engaging in research studies for the promotion of excellence in the profession and healthcare delivery.
The above workshop which could not hold as earlier proposed has been rescheduled to be implemented in Abuja centre as follows:

In view of the above, the Council implores employers of Nurses and Midwives to please encourage and sponsor at least three (3) Nurses and Midwives to participate in the above workshop.
Those who wish to sponsor themselves should be given all the necessary support too.
All intending applicants are to log on to the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria website: www.nmcn.gov.ng to register for the workshop.
