Main nursing issues/priorities: Difficulty in attracting school leavers to enrolled in nursing programme Inability of the FONHS to produce the appropriate number of graduates to meet the demand of the service. Reforms currently undergoing within the university, has cause great concern in the attempt of the university to merge the FONHS as one of the three Schools within the newly established Faculty of Applied Science (FOAS). The other two schools are School of Maritime and School of Engineering FONHS is disputing the decision due to the inappropriateness of the merge with engineers and maritime and especially resourcing implications which will compromise the standards for nursing program. Lower level of clinical practice in the undergraduate program Main midwifery issues/priorities: Improved number and quality of entrants to Nursing Program as noted by MOH being the main sponsor of nursing students Faculty of Nursing & Health Science, has changed to being a school within the Applied Science Faculty as noted above as a concern but now a reality. 9.
