0 Shares

In this post, you will find the list of accredited Nursing schools in Nigeria as well as the number of schools of nursing in all states in Nigeria. These are accredited nursing schools funded by either the State or the Federal Government.

Nursing is no doubt, 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.
