NOUN Admission Requirement For Nursing Programme

How to Gain Admission Into National Open University Of Nigeria (NOUN)

I am excited that you are interested in pursuing a Nursing degree at the National Open University Of Nigeria NOUN. Nursing is a discipline, a profession, and a service.

This article is basically all about the requirements for admission into NOUN Nursing School. I realize that many students who are aspiring to pursue a career in Nursing lack the general knowledge about the nursing career, NOUN nursing programme, admission requirements, and how to enroll to study nursing at NOUN.

What Is Nursing?

Nursing is a profession within the health care sector that focuses on the care of individuals, families, and communities. As we all know, the ratio of nurses to patients in Nigeria is very low compare to other advanced countries. Hence, the rush for the services of nurses in Nigeria.

What do nurses do? They save lives, prevent complications and prevent the suffering of patients. Just like Doctors, nurses are indispensable sets of people we can not do without.
