The programme is hospital and maternity home oriented, problem-based and learner-centered. This involves supervised field attachments in the hospitals and maternity homes and the clinical areas. It requires that the student midwife directly observes and participates in the activities of the hospital and maternity home. The courses have been organized to encourage the integration of theory and practice.
The programme is competency-based and takes into consideration the current needs of society, those of the student midwife and trends in midwifery. The extent to which a programme responds to the needs of the community is indicative of the degree of relevance of the programme.
The Nursing Training College is organized into 6 departments each with various practical courses.
