Narhbita School of Nursing

NursingMedical Laboratory Technology

The Narhbita School of Nursing is private tertiary health institution in Tema in the Greater Accra Region of Ghana. Established in the year 2008, the college can be traced to the Narh-Bita Clinic which was opened in 1979. As the clinic developed to take on greater responsibilities, it was upgraded to the status of a hospital and named the Narh-Bita Hospital in 1987. The problem of shortage of health-workers, including nurses, moved the proprietors of the hospital to establish a School of Nursing to feed Narh-Bita and other health institutions.

The academic programme of the School is directed and supervised by the Nurses' and Midwives' Council for Ghana, while the University of Ghana is the mentor University. The need to run more programmes in the health sector caused the change of name from School of Nursing to Narh-Bita College. The School of Nursing continues to function as a component part of the College. Under the umbrella of the College, the following programmes are featured: Diploma in Nursing, Medical Laboratory Technology, Advanced Diploma in Medical Assistantship and Certificate for Health Assistant Clinical (HAC).

"The College has satisfied the operational conditions and therefore has been duly registered and accredited by the Registrar General's Department and the National Accreditation Board respectively."

Genealogically, the Clinic gave birth to the Hospital out of which came the School of Nursing, then finally the College emerged as a “great-grand child” of the Clinic. Analysing the whole matter it can be said that the desire to help solve the problem of shortage of health workers is the reason for the establishment of the College. It is interesting to note that the various phases in the development of the institutions are the brain-child of Dr. and Mrs. Narh and a few well-wishers, who always assert that the innovations are the outcome of divine inspiration.

The College has able administrators, hard-working staff, both teaching and non-teaching, an up-to-date library, a computer laboratory and adequate equipment. Available facilities at the College enhance teaching and learning, as students also enjoy opportunities that promote successful training career. The college is in the Tema Metropolitan Assembly. The activities of the institution is supervised by the Ministry of Education. The University of Ghana awards a Diploma in Nursing after students from the institution have successfully completed a three-year nursing training programme. The institution is accredited by the National Accreditation Board. The Nurses and Midwifery Council (NMC) is the body that regulates the activities, curriculum and examination of the College. The Council's mandate Is enshrined under section 4(1) of N.R.C.D 117.

The University of Cape Coast is a university in Ghana. The university was established in 1962 out of a dire need for highly qualified and skilled manpower in education and was affiliated to the University of Ghana. It was established to train graduate teachers for second cycle institutions such as teacher training colleges and technical institutions, a mission that the two existing universities were unequipped to fulfill. Since its establishment, the university has added to its functions the training of education planners, administrators, agriculturalists and health care professionals. In pursuance of its mission, the university restructured its degree program from BA, BSc and BEd in education to B.A/BSc with non-education content and a BEd, a professional qualification in Education.

Kumasi

Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology is a University in Kumasi, Ashanti, Ghana. The Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology is the largest public university established in the country as well as the largest University in Kumasi Metropolis and Ashanti. The University has its roots in the plans of the King Asantehene Agyeman Prempeh I to establish a University in Kumasi as part of his drive towards modernization of his Ashanti kingdom. This plan never came to fruition due to the clash between British empire expansion and the desire for King Prempeh I to preserve his Ashanti kingdom's independence.

However, his younger brother and successor, King Asantehene Agyeman Prempeh II, upon ascending to the Golden Stool in 1935, continued with this vision. Events in the Gold Coast in the 1940s played into his hands. First there was the establishment of the University College of the Gold Coast. Second there were the 1948 riots and the consequent Watson Commission report which recommended that a university of sciences be established in Kumasi. Thus, in 1949, the dream of the Prempehs became a reality when building started on what was to be called the Kumasi College of Technology.

The Kumasi College of Technology offered admission to its first students to the engineering faculty in 1951 (they entered in 1952), and an Act of Parliament gave the university its legal basis as the Kumasi College of Technology in 1952. The nucleus of the college was formed from 200 teacher training students transferred from Achimota in the Greater Accra Region. The college was affiliated to the University of London. In 1961, the college was granted full university status.

The main university campus, which is about seven square miles in area, is about eight miles (13 km) to the east of Kumasi, the Ashanti Regional capital.

The University of Ghana is the oldest and largest of the thirteen Ghanaian universities and tertiary institutions. It was founded in 1948 as the University College of the Gold Coast, and was originally an affiliate college of the University of London, which supervised its academic programmes and awarded degrees. It gained full university status in 1961, and now has nearly 40,000 students.

The original emphasis was on the liberal arts, social sciences, basic science, agriculture, and medicine, but (partly as the result of a national educational reform programme) the curriculum was expanded to provide more technology-based and vocational courses and postgraduate training.

The university is mainly based at Legon, about twelve kilometres northeast of the centre of Accra. The medical school is in Korle Bu, with a teaching hospital and secondary campus in the city of Accra. It also has a graduate school of nuclear and allied sciences at the Ghana Atomic Energy Commission, making it one of the few universities on the Africa continent offering programmes in nuclear physics and nuclear engineering.
