Nursing in Ghana

Before 1899, in Ghana the sick were only cared for by family and friends, who bathed and cared for them without any scientific expertise; no one pursued nursing as a career. The signing of the 1844 treaty brought the southern part of the Gold Coast under the sovereignty of the British officers, including medical officers required the services of trained nurses.

Young men with fairly good speaking of English were employed mostly in the practical nature of nursing by number of lectures on the various aspects for them.

As more medical services were provided across the length and breath of the country, the demand for more nurses increased, both governmental and non-governmental organizations trained nurses using their own standards and scope. Just before 1945, nursing was standardized in the country. Read more about nursing on the official ministry of health website.
