    School of Nursing

    Given the acute shortage of medical personnel both in the private and public health units and the massive future requirements as observed hereafter, MMH desired to join government in the quest to train health workers. In November 2008 MTI was born by enrolling the first set of students for both Diploma in Nursing (DN) and Certificate in Comprehensive Nursing (CCN).
    The Ministry of Education and Sports (MOES) partially licensed MTI in May 2009 to train Certificate in Nursing (CN) and Certificate in Midwifery (CM).
    The DN course was phased out in 2011 as the pioneer, and only group of DN students graduated to allow for the CN and CM training and to prepare for the Diploma in Nursing Extension Course as will be seen in the future plans later.
    Training in CN and CM therefore started in May 2011. The last group of CCN was enrolled in November 2013 as the discipline is being phased out.
    Student enrollment has grown tremendously by 60% per year since inception.
