Again, by introducing simulation labs, hands-on training, and interactive learning experiences, Ezulike has ensured that students receive the most comprehensive and practical education possible.

This approach has not only enhanced the quality of education at the college but has also equipped students with the skills and knowledge needed to excel above their peers in their future nursing careers.

Ezulike’s emphasis on innovation in nursing practice has significantly raised the college’s academic profile and reputation, making it to become a magnet for students. The surge of applicants desiring to join the college for nursing and midwifery programs has become immense.

To save the situation, the college made a request to the NMCN for resource verification for the Nursing Department and full accreditation for the Midwifery Department. This happened last year December 2023. As God may have it, the college scaled through and had its quota increased for the Nursing Department from 75 to 120 and 100 for the Midwifery Department.
