About us


The Holy Family Nursing and Midwifery Training College, Berekum has quality and discipline among its hallmarks. We also place emphasis on competence and professionalism hence our motto: “Before you learn to care, you must care to learn”.

As part of our objectives, we train Nurses and Midwives to uphold ethical and professional standards. As a Catholic Institution we instill in our students the Gospel values of the Kingdom of God among which are, love, compassion, forgiveness, humility, sacrifice, tolerance, care of the sick, women, children and the vulnerable. In other words, we do not only train the mind but the heart too, and this is what makes us unique.


The Registered General Nursing programme is a six-semester (three year) Diploma programme that prepares the individual to give general nursing care in the hospital and the community. The programme is opened to both sexes.

The goal of the programme is to produce a polyvalent nurse who would practice general nursing in any sector of the community. The professional nurse would have acquired knowledge, skills and attitude to recognize the total health needs of the individuals, families and communities, and appreciate effectively and efficiently in meeting those needs.
