Last updated on July 1, 2020 by The Counselor

On this article, I am going to list out some Nursing courses outlines in Nigeria Universities which you will study before you can to become a Nursing graduate. Normally, a course outline should contain; course name, course description, course hours etc… but I am going to skip that information and go straight to Nursing subjects for university students.

I will only list out the subjects that is, course names which will exclude GST Courses and those courses with part II and III to avoid too much information.
