The College of Nursing, University of Benin Teaching Hospital, formerly School of Nursing, University of Benin Teaching Hospital wishes to inform all intending applicants and the general public that admission into the College is now through the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME)
This is due to the recent upgrade of our Institution to National Diploma (ND) and Higher National Diploma (HND) awarding institution by the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE), which entitles our graduands to be called up for National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).
All intending applicants should therefore endeavour to enroll in the ongoing UTME registration exercise to be eligible to apply for the Post UTME that will come up later in the year.

Every year, stuttering communities and associations around the world get together, put on events and campaign to highlight how certain aspects of society can be difficult for people who stutter; to challenge negative attitudes and discrimination; and to debunk myths that people who stammer are nervous or less intelligent.
ISAD also celebrates the many notable figures who stutter; who have made a mark on the world now and throughout history in the fields of science, politics, philosophy, art, cinema and music.
The concerted effort of the Chief Medical Director, Prof D.E. Obaseki and Management to make UBTH a centre of excellence in Oncology care has yielded fruit as the new Ultramodern Brachytherapy suite has become functional.
This is sequel to the installation of the Cobalt 60 high dose rate Brachytherapy machine and successful training of personnel to man the Unit.
UBTH is now only the 2nd hospital (Public or Private) in Nigeria to offer Brachytherapy services using the Cobalt 60 high dose rate machine for the treatment of gynecological malignancies such as Cervix, Endometrial and Vagina Cancers.
By this feat, UBTH now occupies a pride of place in Nigeria Oncology space.
Congratulations to Radiation and Clinical Oncology Department!
