History of School of Nursing (SON), Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH)

The School of Nursing (SON), Lagos University Teaching Hospital was established in July 1962 under Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) and under the same decree on which the hospital was founded. The first intake of the School was sixteen (16) students and there were only two (2) tutors and a health educator as the teaching staff. The educational requirement then was attempted West African School Certificate Examination.

 

In February 1965, Miss H. Joyce, a representative of the General Nursing Council for England and Wales visited the school. After the first visit, the school was granted recognition and full recognition as the Nurses trained in England and Wales. The Hospital Final Examination was accepted as the qualifying and registering examination both for England and Wales and also for the General Nursing Council of Nigeria. By the year 1966, the intake of students had increased to one hundred and twenty (120) per year and intake was done twice yearly in May and in November.

 

In December 1966, the Nursing Council of Nigeria introduced a new standard and made it mandatory that all training schools take the Final Qualifying Examination set by the Council. Students still got full reciprocity with England and Wales but they must be successful both in the Hospital Final Examination as well as in the Nigeria Nursing Council’s Examination. At the end of December 1986, a directive came from the Nursing and Midwifery Council that beginning from 1987, intake into Schools of Nursing and Midwifery should be once a year.

 

The School now admits once a year and entrance to the School is in October. Entry requirements compare favourably with those for other professional courses. To qualify for admission into the school, a prospective student must have a minimum of five (5) credits in the West African School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) or National Examination Council (NECO), inclusive of credits in English Language, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology at one or two sittings.

 

Qualified candidates take the entrance examination which is in three (3) phases. Successful candidates are interviewed by a panel for final selection. The course of study lasts for three (3) years leading to the award of Registered Nurse (RN).

 

The school is currently headed by Adetunji A. J. (Director, Nursing Education/Principal/Head of School). The current academic staff strength is sixteen (16) with a students’ population of two hundred and twenty five (225).

 

The SON, LUTH is one of the best approved and recognized Schools of Nursing in Nigeria. It is well known for its flexibility, range of facilities and modern equipment, high profile of good performance in the Council Examination as well as a safe, interesting and comfortable environment where students can live and study.

How to calculate your chances for gaining undergraduate admission into Unilag this 2018 through UTME

By now (May 2018) candidates who wrote the 2018 UTME and who made University of Lagos (Unilag) their first choice can assess their chances of gaining undergraduate admission this year. The first condition is that they must score 200 and above to qualify to write post UTME.

Second, they need to bear in mind that in 2017 Unilag calculated the aggregate scores of candidates by weighting UTME at 50%; O-Level results at 20%; and post UTME at 30%.

If you wrote the UTME you can calculate your UTME component by dividing your UTME score by 8. (400/8 = 50).

O-Level aggregate is calculated using only 5 required O-Level subjects for the course you wish to study as follows: A1 = 4.0 points; B2 = 3.6 points; B3 = 3.2 points; C4 = 2.8 points; C5 = 2.4 points and C6 = 2.0 points. (4.0 x 5 = 20).

For example, let us say Bisi scored 205 in UTME for Theatre Arts (under Creative Arts) and her O-Level results were as follows: English Language – C5; Mathematics – C4; Literature-In-English – C6; Government – A1; and Visual Arts – C6. Her total score so far would be 25.63 (UTME component) + 13.2 (O-Level aggregate) = 38.83 out of 70 points.

Given that in 2017 the merit cut-off score for Theatre Arts was 62.15 points we estimate that Bisi would need 62.15 – 38.83 = 23.32 points in post UTME to have a good shot at the merit list for Theatre Arts.

The 2017 Unilag post UTME was scored to 30 points. The highest score in that exercise was 26/30.

Now, if Bisi feels confident that she could score 23.32 in post UTME then she could press on. However, experience tells us that a realistic target for Bisi would be 20 points. We would thus advise her to consider switching to a course with a 2017 cut-off score of around 56 points like Visual Arts or Music both under Creative Arts in Unilag.

Armed with information about her admission chances a Bisi can decide whether to apply to JAMB for a change course or institution while she still can.

The advice we give is based on data of past performances and the candidate’s academic strength. It has proven to be a sound method of analysis.

Feel free to chat with us via WhatsApp on 08092327228 and we will analyse your admission chances into Unilag this 2018. You can also post your comments below. We will reply.
