About Nightingale School of Nursing

The Nightingale School of Nursing was Founded on July 1, 2008
Our vision is to prepare a community of advanced nurse scholars and practitioners who are committed to professional ideals, lifelong learning, and meaningful practice within the healthcare communities.
The progress of human society has expanded beyond the horizon of traditional human needs of food, shelter, and clothing.
Health care has taken a center stage in the present day human development and is increasingly assuming a central role in determining the quality of life of individuals and the society at large. Government alone cannot provide everything to meet the demands for health care due to increase in population, inadequate resources and skills to train the required personnel. As a consequence, private institutions are encouraged by government to setup private health facilities and training institutions to train various health personnel to supplement government effort.
Nightingale School of Nursing Limited is a private limited liability company incorporated under the Ghana companies code 1963 (Act 179) on 6th September 2007 and issued with a certificate to commence business on 7th September 2007.
