History of the College

Nursing and Midwifery Training College, Kpembe, was established in December 2008 as a public health training institution in the East Gonja District of Northern Region, now referred to as Savannah Region, to train Health Assistants. The school is located in Kpembe, a community located 2 kilometers east of the District capital, Salaga, now a Municipality. Academic activities started in February 2008 with only the Health Assistance, Clinical (HAC) program. In 2012, the Post-NAC/NAP midwifery program was introduced to complement the HAC program. This was followed by the introduction of Registered General Nursing in 2013, and Registered Midwifery in 2014.

This brought the full complement of academic programs in the school to four, and gave true meaning to the current name of the school, “Nursing and Midwifery Training College”.
