The Midwifery and Nursing Schools in Nigeria listed here are those that are currently approved by the council. It is important to note that the council has the right to withdraw the approval or accreditation from any of the Nursing Schools in Nigeria if they are found wanting in any of the recommendations of the Council. Therefore, the list is subject to review.

The aim of this list is to serve as a guide for parents and guardians who are seeking admission for their children and wards into any of the Nursing schools in Nigeria. This ensures that you do not make the wrong choice of entering into the wrong hands. Any other schools of nursing outside the ones in this list are not approved by the Council.
