Increasing the Production of Competent and Qualified Frontline Health Workers in Nigeria

This case study is part of the interactive ePlatform for the World Health Organization’s guidelines on transforming and scaling up health professionals’ education and training. Findings of a rapid bottlenecks assessment of midwifery, nursing, and health technology schools in Nigeria informed CapacityPlus’s work with federal- and state-level stakeholders to develop a plan to increase the production of certified graduates. This included providing educational resources, training tutors in up-to-date clinical guidelines and computer assisted pedagogy, and supporting students at risk of dropping out through scholarships. This comprehensive support has reduced student drop-out rates and increased pass rates on national certification examinations.
