This grim picture therefore gave the need for immediate commencement of training both Nurses and Midwives by the State Government. A standing Committee was set up for the establishment of Kebbi State School of Nursing and Midwifery. The Committee's interim report which was submitted before the Government by the Military did a lot of work. Subsequently the issue was revisited during the two Military Regimes but not much progress was made.
When the present Civilian Administration came into being, the need for establishment of the School became even greater. More Hospitals and Clinics were established similarly Nurses and Midwives were also being lost through transfers of Services, retirement, resignation and death. In order to correct this situation, the Administration immediately awarded and constructed a befitting School of Nursing and Midwifery for the State. The School started with an initial enrolment of 95 Students Midwives for the first set and 198 Students Nurses.
