Due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 and in practice of necessary safety precautions, this year’s RGN licensing examination would be conducted online, and in this regard the Wisconsin International University College, Ghana (WIUC-Gh) would make available its Information Communication Technology lab facility to the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Ghana for the conduct of its RGN and NAC/NAP MCQs licensing examination for NMTC Korle Bu, NMTC Odumasi Krobo, NMTC Pantang, and Health Concern.
With a spacious seating capacity of over 200 the WIUC-Gh state-of-the-art air-conditioned computer laboratory is ideal to accommodate the large numbers of students at a time while adhering to adequate COVID-19 safety precautions. The facility is also fully equipped with ICT toolkits such as computers, USBs, whiteboards, microphones, projectors and access to the internet to aid smooth teaching and learning.
Even before the outbreak of COVID-19, WIUC-Gh has been the preferred center for the conduct of RGN and NAC/NAP licensing examination. This can largely be attributed to Wisconsin’s cutting-edge infrastructures such as the Nursing Skills Laboratory which was recently commissioned by the First Lady of Ghana, HE Rebecca Akufo-Addo. With a typical hospital setting, the Skills laboratory comes with the latest robots and health devices for practical purposes.
In all, 350 students across the country are expected to sit for both the Online RGN and NAC/NAP MCQs Licensing examination. This number includes the maiden batch of the WIUC-Gh School of Nursing.
