Re: Filling of Personal Data Forms By Students in Our Training Institutions
At the 41st General meeting of the Board of the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria, held 11th-13th July, 2017, it was directed that the following information should be communicated to all the training institutions in the Country on the above subject matter.
• The Council observed with dismay the alarming rate of errors in the personal data forms of students from various institutions in the Country received at the Council Offices at all levels.
• Henceforth, Students are to be allowed to fill in the Council forms in their own handwriting
• Lecturers, teachers and focal persons are to desist from filling any Council form for any student, as you will be accountable for any error to this effect.
It will be appreciated if you would kindly bring this information to the attention of all concerned.
Thank you.
