Nurses do not just appear all of a sudden; they are trained in nursing schools for good number of years. And do you know one of the best nursing schools you can attend if you must be a qualified and certified nurse?

It is the FCT Nursing School, Abuja.

Perhaps you have heard about this school but you are not sure how you can get enrolled in the school as a nursing student.

Very well, this article shall give you a full guide through all you should know about the School of Nursing Abuja, forms and requirements.

We have also enlisted here other important details you will need to know about the school and her examination. I therefore urge you to read carefully so as not to miss important details.


The FCT School of nursing sells two admission forms for different categories of students they admit:

  1. The form for the Basic Nursing programme in September.
  2. The form for the 18 months Post Basic Nursing programme sold in March. 

During the months stated above, the school begins to sell the forms through their School website. If you must get hold of the FCT School of Nursing application form, you should visit the page early in the months of application.

When application closes, qualified candidates will be invited for an entry examination and the only students that will be admitted are ones that scored the minimum required points.
