Schools of Nursing That Don't Write Entrance Exams?

Considering how difficult the school of nursing exams had been reported to be, it's more likely you're looking for those that won't conduct entrance tests for their assistants before admitting them.

Before you give up on nursing school exams, my guide, "How To Pass School of Nursing Exams in Nigeria" may help to give you some confidence if you should give it some thought.

Some candidates are of the opinion that the exams, even if it's not that difficult, there is no certainty that these schools and colleges of nursing are not purposefully sabotaging the efforts of poor candidates just to favor their own slots.

And going through the hell of studying for and passing the exam is something a typical Nigerian student would like to avoid.

As a result, there is a need to look into the list of schools of nursing that won't conduct entrance exams and if we find any, talk about how they will admit instead.

No School of Nursing Will Admit Without an Entrance Exam

From my experience, as an education consultant, having consulted for students seeking admission into several schools and colleges of Nursing in Nigeria, I've not come across, heard of, or known any of these institutions that will not test aspirants before admission.

It's clear that some schools will not conduct exams for their aspirants, especially among the universities and polytechnics, but for the schools and colleges of nursing, conducting and writing an entrance test is customarily A MUST.

It's safe to say that if you're trying to avoid writing exams before you can gain admission into a Nursing program, you should consider some universities instead of schools and colleges of Nursing.

Some Universities Offering Nursing Won't Conduct Exams

Seeking admission into universities offering Nursing Science (degree Nursing) is different from seeking admission into schools of nursing and colleges of nursing. I differentiate between the two as comprehensively as possible in the post, "School of Nursing VS Nursing in University: Differences, Better One and List of Schools".

While the latter will not require JAMB to be admitted especially those awarding Registered Nursing/Midwifery, the former will require you to obtain JAMB, choose the school in your JAMB registration, or change of institution before you can be admitted. The same is applicable to schools and colleges of nursing that are awarding ND/HND in Nursing. You can see the comprehensive list of schools of nursing requesting for JAMB UTME those who are not here.

If you're trying to avoid exams before gaining admission to Nursing, some universities won't conduct any other exams. Among these universities are:

  1. Lagos State University, Lagos
  2. University of Abuja, FCT
  3. University of Maiduguri, Borno State
  4. Ladoke Akintola University, Ogbomoso (may not conduct exam if there is a strike, national unrest, or pandemic)
  5. Federal University, Oye Ekiti, Ekiti State
  6. Osun State University, Osogbo, Osun State
  7. Kwara State University, Molete, Ilorin, Kwara State
  8. Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma, Edo State
  9. Ebonyi State University, Abakaliki, Ebonyi State
  10. University of Jos, Jos, Plateau State
  11. University of Ilorin, Kwara State (sometimes may not conduct exams if there is a strike, national  unrest, or pandemic)
  12. Ekiti State University, Ado Ekiti, Ekiti State
  13. Taraba State University, Jalingo, Taraba State

The Higher Your JAMB Score and SSCE Grade, The Better

If you must go for any of the universities listed above, all in the name of trying to dodge any entrance exam, you should be ready to compete intensively with your UTME score and O'level grades.

It should be clear to you, by now, that, you will strictly need JAMB UTME and WAEC, NECO, GCE or NABTEB to be admitted to universities admitting for Nursing without post-UTME or any other exams.

With that, the competition is equally going to be tense. More students will come with the highest possible UTME scores and As in their O'levels. Can you proudly compete here?

As you must have thought, you're not the only one trying to avoid writing exams. In the end, candidates with the best possible scores and grades will be favored. 

In fact, it won't matter the cut-off drawn by the university, the higher your score and grades, the better your chance. Don't forget that no university will admit lower-scored/graded candidates while higher-scored/graded counterparts are denied.

To this end, it's safe to say that if a university (or schools of nursing admitting through JAMB) rely on the SSCE results and JAMB UTME, it may choose not to conduct further exams for the aspirants.

Unfortunately, not all schools of nursing are running ND/HND and even to date, we're yet to have those running it that won't conduct entrance exams notwithstanding.

Whereas, some universities, as already listed in the post, will depend much on your  JAMB score and SSCE results to offer you nursing admission without further exams.
