UBTH Blog & News



Last week we published the story of an unknown patient who was brought to the hospital by ‘a good Samaritan’ upon being found lifeless along the road. We’re pleased to inform the public that his relatives and friends saw the post and have come to the hospital. He is now reunited with his people.

Management is by this thanking everyone who saw the post and shared it. This man may not be able to thank all of you but on his behalf, we say thank you for your care.

He is pictured above with his people and still getting care in the hospital.

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.
