Training & Education
Equivalent in Canadian dollars: $750,000
Lacor Hospital schools include Nursing (three-year certificate and two year diploma courses) and Midwifery (certificate and, from this year, also degree). Most of the trainees are from within the country but some are from other countries, like Kenya, Sudan, Congo, Rwanda and Tanzania. During the examinations held by the November 2015 Uganda Nurses and Midwives Examinations Board (a semi-autonomous government body), the school presented 114 candidates (56 Certified Nursing, 34 Certified Midwifery, 24 Diploma Nursing) with pass rates of 98%, 97% and 91%. The Hospital also offers the required field exposure with rotations of students in the Hospital’s Peripheral Health Centres. The schools’ training capacities have required building the necessary hosting facilities for students and tutors. The school has 12 teaching (including principal, tutors, and clinical instructors) and 8 support staff.
