The results of 56 nursing trainees at the Holy Family Nursing and Midwifery Training College in Berekum in the Brong Ahafo, have been cancelled for engaging in examination malpractice

According to Mr Felix Nyante, the Registrar of the Nurses and Midwives Council (NMC), the students were found to have cheated in the examination hall after the mobile phone of one of them had smuggled into the examination hall had fallen from her panties onto the floor of the hall.

After some investigation, it was found out that a WhatsApp platform was set up for the purpose of cheating during the August 2014 Registered General Nursing (RGN) Licensure Examination.

Also, they are said to have taken pictures of the question papers, sent them to an external collaborator who answered them and then sent the answers back to the students in the examination hall via WhatsApp.

 Out 89 students who sat for the August 2014 RGN Licensing Examination, the results of 33 students have been released, after they had been declare off any wrongdoing in the conduct of the examination.                

However the College has been de-recognised by the NMC as an examination centre for three years, while the students will not be permitted to write the licensing examination for two consecutive times.

Mr.  Nyante said the decision of the council to sanction the students was based on the fact that they flouted the NMC’s rules, which included “bringing foreign materials into the examination hall, collusion and mass cheating.”
