Over 20 students of St. Francis Namataba School of Health Sciences, who are training for Nursing and Midwifery have pitched camp at the school premises after the institution failed to register them for the Uganda Nurses and Midwifery.
Uganda Nurses and Midwifery Examinations have commenced on Monday at different Health training institutions and only registered students have been allowed access to the examination rooms.
Students say they were enrolled for a Diploma level but they have just learnt that the Institution was not licensed at the time of enrolment for Diploma students and cannot sit for their End of Semester One Examinations.
They have pleaded to the Uganda Nursing Council-UNC, Uganda Nurses and Midwifery Examination Board-UNMEB, and Ministry of Health to intervene into their matter and have them compensated by the Institution.
Geoffrey Kanima, the Deputy Rector of the Institute declined to appear in camera promising to hold a meeting on Wednesday this week to forge away forward.
