Top Schools/Colleges of Health and Technology in Nigeria

Difference Between a School of Nursing and College of Health Technology

School/college of nursing is usually operated and administered by a University teaching hospital to train and groom students for 3-year health care services. The Colleges of health technology usually train health care providers in areas including community and environmental health care, food hygiene and laboratory assistance, etc. Colleges of health are usually independent of any university teaching hospital while programmes duration varies depending on the courses.
