OPINION: Whats Really Wrong With ECWA School Of Nursing, Egbe (ESON)? By Ernest O.

On 12/Dec/2017 / In Articles

I learnt recently that ESON has asked some Nov. 2016 Nursing Council candidates to return to the school to re-submit their passport photographs for fresh processing of their initial license. This is coming 13 months after these candidates wrote their Council exams.
The reason is that there was an error and as a result NMCN could not process their licenses! The candidates are going through hell to travel thousands of miles back to school to submit fresh passports just like they did during registration and the exam proper. They would have to probably wait for another one year because they will be processed and issued licenses.
That is not just the only case of lack of good management exhibited by the school.
After the release of result by the NMCN in January 2017, the school mandated all candidates to pay their registration and license fees, latest by first week of March, 2017. The school refused to forward the names and fees to NMCN until August, 2017 (five months after).
By July 2017, the Principal of the school, Mrs. Zakari had started issuing Letters of Authority to the candidates to go and collect Notification of Registration from NMCN, Abuja. She collected #2000 naira to issue these letters, knowing fully well the forms and registration monies paid have not been sent to NMCN.
The candidates were turned back by NMCN and informed that Council hasn't received their forms and fees from their school. Only those who boycotted the school and went on self-registration succeeded.
The candidates were later registered on 9th August, 2017. Yet again, NMCN printed date of registration to be 9th August 2016 instead of 9th August, 2017. There is of course no way examination date would bear Nov. 2016 and registration date would be August, 2016.
Again, the school dished out these notifications of registration to candidates without dictating this error. They seemed to be more interested in the #1000 naira they were collecting to give out out these notifications.
Unfortunately, an outsider, who is not even a nurse dictated this error and called attention to it. The school had to direct all candidates to return the notifications.
If despite all the millions of Naira that ESON made from these innocent students, it still cannot develop a proper management system in handling students affairs, then we can only wonder what their money making drive is all about.
I paid you a fee for exam and registration, your management system failed to deliver about 13 months later, you ask me to come make another submission as a result of your system failure and you keep me for close to two years before I can have my registration and license as a nurse.
What a school Indeed!
