AIMS AND OBJECTIVES>>

 

NURSING IN NIGERIA

Nurses, according to the ICN Code of Ethics as reviewed in 2005, have four fundamental responsibilities:  to promote health, to prevent illness, to restore health and to alleviate suffering.  The need for nursing is universal.  Inherent in nursing is respect for human rights, including cultural rights, the right to life and choice, to dignity and to be treated with respect.

Nursing care is respectful of and unrestricted by considerations of age, colour, creed, culture, disability or illness, gender, sexual orientation, nationality, politics, race or social status.

Nurses render health services to the individual, the family and the community and coordinate their services with those of related groups.

Before 1981, nursing was adjudged a vocation in Nigeria, but  by virtue of the Industrial Arbitration Panel (IAP) award of 1981, nursing got the recognition of a full-fledged profession.

  • Strengthening the Nursing, the Midwifery and Healthcare Workforce
