Nursing Course Outline in Nigeria Universities

Last Updated on

On this article, I am going to list Nursing courses you will study while preparing you to be a Nursing graduate. Normally, a course outline should contain; course name, course description, course hours etc… but I am going to skip that information.

I will only list out the course names excluding GST Courses and those courses with part II and III to avoid too much information and there is no guarantee that the listed subjects (courses) here will be fully covered in your school except for Nigeria Universities. Nevertheless, you will study 97% of Nursing courses listed here.
