Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has unveiled the first Islamic Nursing Training College in Ghana at Aplaku in the capital Accra on Saturday, March 19.
He was joined by the leadership of the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaa from Ghana and Nigeria for the opening ceremony.
Even though Ghana has over 90 public nursing training colleges across the country, they are inadequate to meet the growing admission demands of senior high school (SHS) graduates.
The private sector, especially faith-based organisations, have played leading roles in complementing the government's efforts at expanding access to nursing training by establishing nursing schools.
