Uganda Nurses and Midwives Examination Board-UNMEB Wants Government To Increase Facilities In Schools
- Uganda Nurses and Midwives Examination Board-UNMEB has asked government to improve the learning facilities in nursing schools and pay of nurses to attract more people into the profession.
The appeal stems from the low number of students applying for the diploma nursing course. Helen Mukakarisa Kataratambi, the Executive Secretary UNMEB, says the entry requirements for the nursing diploma course are high.
A total of 13,533 candidates are expected to sit for the national examinations that started yesterday. However only 1,224 candidates will be sitting for diploma programs compared to 12,309 students sitting for certificate programs.
