Nursing and Midwifery Council to Enforce New Fees Starting Wednesday – Foreign Verification Under Review

Effective Wednesday, May 21, 2024, the Nursing and Midwifery Council (N&MC) will enforce a new fee structure.

These include fees for foreign verification, examination charges for various courses, acquisition and renewal of personal identification numbers (PINs), registration and licensing, and accreditation for training institutions, among others.

However, the council clarified that the fee for foreign verification will remain at GH¢550, as the new rate of GH¢3,000 approved in March is still under review. A statement from the council’s Governing Board on March 15 confirmed that all newly approved fees will be implemented except for the foreign verification fee.

“The newly approved fees (Miscellaneous Provisions) Regulations, 2024 (L.I 2481) will take effect on Wednesday, May 22, 2024,” the statement said.

The N&MC assured the public that it is committed to maintaining the highest standards in nursing and midwifery training and practice.

Background

The N&MC had suspended the newly approved fees, which were to take effect from March 1 this year. The fees included a significant increase in foreign verification costs from GH¢550 to GH¢3,000, a 445.45 percent rise.

The Governing Board decided to pause the implementation of these new fees in March, pending a review. The council stated that the suspension followed discussions with relevant stakeholders who raised concerns about the increase.
