The Ministry of Education and Sports working with the Uganda Nurses and Midwifery Examinations Board (UNMEB) is implementing stringent actions to address the issue of Nursing Training Institutes admitting candidates from illegal schools for examinations.

Dr. Safinah Kisu Musene, the commissioner in charge of health training at the Ministry of Education, said that if it is discovered that a student registered at a specific institution hails from an illegal establishment, the heads of both illegal and legal institutions will be held accountable for their actions.

Dr. Musene made the remarks on Saturday afternoon during the briefing session for principals and center coordinators before the upcoming June examinations scheduled to commence on Monday.

The commissioner emphasized that principals implicated in such situations also face the risk of having their personal licenses revoked. Their involvement in these practices goes against the ethical standards upheld by the nursing profession.

By cracking down on these illegal activities, the Ministry and UNMEB aim to maintain the quality standards of nursing education and safeguard the reputation of legitimate training institutes.

Helen Mukakarisa Kataratambi, the Executive Secretary of UNMEB, recognized that rumors regarding this matter have persisted for years. However, substantial evidence has now surfaced, prompting the board to devise strategies.

For example, she highlights that the board has recently uncovered three illegal institutions that have illegally enrolled over 300 candidates in well-established training schools. However, she refrains from disclosing the names of these institutions due to the ongoing investigation.

She stressed that the board has taken necessary steps to guarantee a fair examination procedure and individuals found involved in illicit activities will be held accountable for their actions. Additionally, the executive secretary emphasized the significance of principals from reputable institutions refraining from admitting students from unauthorized schools, as it undermines the integrity of the nursing profession.

Meanwhile, the board is preparing to assess a total of 51,000 students, including those who are final-year students.

During the same occasion, the executive secretary also addressed the principals regarding the issue of log books, which the board has identified as being inadequately managed or reviewed. She pointed out that it has been observed that numerous student log books often lack the necessary signatures.

Mukakarisa further emphasized that going forward, the board will be compelled to withhold or invalidate the results of candidates whose practical log books fail to meet the expected standards.
