In a remarkable display of excellence, Millennium College of Nursing Sciences has rapidly ascended to the forefront of nursing education, setting unprecedented standards in just under two years since its establishment.

Under the visionary leadership of Mrs. Chisom C. Ezulike, the current provost, the college has achieved remarkable milestones, earning accolades from both within and outside the nursing community.

Since its inception in June 2022, the college has garnered significant recognition for its commitment to excellence and innovation. Accredited with a quota of 75 despite its status as a new institution, Millennium College of Nursing Sciences has surpassed expectations with its state-of-the-art infrastructure and dedicated faculty.

With well-equipped lecture halls, modern ICT facilities, coastal buses for transportation and demonstration halls boasting simulators and models, qualified lecturers of adequate ratio, students at the college have been exposed to the latest trends in nursing practice from the outset. This robust foundation has translated into outstanding academic performance, with the college achieving a perfect score of 100% in both mid-introductory and first-semester year one examinations.

A trailblazer in educational methodology, Millennium College of Nursing Sciences became the first institution in the Eastern region to conduct entrance examinations and Preliminary Training Sessions (PTS) using Computer Based Training (CBT). This pioneering approach earned commendation from the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria (NMCN), establishing the college as a leader in CBT evaluation methods.

Furthermore, the college’s strategic partnerships with healthcare institutions such as Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu Teaching Hospital and various Health Centers in Awka South LGA have provided students with unparalleled clinical exposure, giving them a competitive edge in their practical training.

Such outstanding achievements have not gone unnoticed, as evidenced by the surge in demand from prospective students seeking to enroll at Millennium College of Nursing Sciences. Responding to this overwhelming interest, the college recently obtained resource verification for its Nursing Department and full accreditation for its Midwifery Department from the NMCN.

To the delight of the college community, the NMCN has increased the quota for the Nursing Department from 75 to 120 and for the Midwifery Department to 100, a testament to the institution’s unwavering dedication to excellence.

As Mrs. Chisom C. Ezulike, the driving force behind these achievements, reflects on the journey thus far, she attributes the success to the collective efforts of the faculty, staff, and students, emphasizing a commitment to excellence and innovation as the guiding principles of Millennium College of Nursing Sciences.

In just under two years, Millennium College of Nursing Sciences has not only surpassed expectations but has set a new standard for nursing education in the region, demonstrating the transformative power of dedication, vision, and collaboration.

The school enjoys and appreciate the robust support of His Grace, the Most Rev’d Alexander Chibuzo Ibezim, PhD, the Archbishop of the Province of the Niger, and the Bishop, Diocese of Awka (Anglican Communion). Archbishop Ibezim is the Visitor of the College of Nursing Sciences.
