The approval process completed after the school has met the requirements stipulated in the Act and Regulations 2020. To date, the Council has approved 107 nursing/midwifery training schools/institutions to train students at certificate, diploma,degree ,master’s and PhD level

It is necessary that students make sure that the institution where they will be trained is approved by the Council AND that the training programme (course). The Tanzania nursing and midwifery Council will not recognize any students or graduates trained from unrecognized and not approved school/institutions /programs of the training the student has received. This means that the learner will not be able to practice in Tanzania (or elsewhere) after completing the training. The education and training regulations (available on this website) give minimum entry requirements for each nursing/midwifery training programmes.
It is a requirement that all training institutions undergo the recognition process. It is based on best practices and adherence of the establishment criteria and quality standards for operation. It ensures that nursing and midwifery programs meet or exceed a variety of standards. This process is necessary to ensure students receive the quality education for their professional field.
