Nursing and Midwifery Training College, Kpembe, was established in December 2008 as one of the Ministry of Health Training Institutions to train Nurses and Midwives. The school is located in Kpembe, a community located 2 kilometres East of the  Salaga Municipality. Academic activities started in February, 2008 with only the Nurse Assistant, Clinical (NAC) programme. In 2012, the Post-NAC/NAP midwifery program was introduced to complement the NAC program.

This was followed by the introduction of Registered General Nursing in 2013, and Registered Midwifery in 2014. This brought the full complement of the academic program in the school to four, and gave true meaning to the current name of the school, “Nursing and Midwifery Training”.

From a very humble beginning, the school is now considered one of the best nursing training colleges in the country with enviable infrastructure, human resource, and a very good track record of success in the licensing exams.
