Our Story - Our Journey

Welcome to Nursing Conception Initiative (NCI), an organization dedicated to promoting the image and perception of nurses in Nigeria as well as promoting nursing excellence.

Over the past decade, nursing has undergone significant improvements in our country, thanks to the collective efforts of individuals like you and us. Nurses have been tireless in their commitment to excellence, and every day we witness the positive impact they make in healthcare.

In 2015, a group of students from Obafemi Awolowo University came together with a shared vision for change. Fueled by a desire to see nursing flourish and evolve, they established Nursing Conception Initiative (NCI). Today, we proudly celebrate eight years of commitment to our mission.

At NCI, our vision has remained clear since our inception: to raise a generation of nurses who are proud of their profession, free from inferiority complex, and command unwavering respect. We recognized that many individuals were entering the nursing profession without a comprehensive understanding of what it truly entails. This lack of awareness resulted in a dent in their self-esteem and hindered the recognition and appreciation of the nursing profession. NCI was born out of the need to bridge this gap and provide a platform for education and support.

Our primary goal is to equip nurses with the knowledge and resources necessary to develop a deep sense of pride and confidence in their profession. We firmly believe that understanding the true essence of nursing, its opportunities, and the potential it holds is crucial in commanding the respect it deserves. By empowering nurses to embrace their role fully, we enable them to unleash their potentials and contribute significantly to the healthcare landscape.

To achieve our vision, NCI offers a wide range of activities and initiatives. We conduct reorientation programs, both in-person and virtually, to enlighten nurses about the profession and dispel any misconceptions surrounding it. Through online discussions and educational content, we provide continuous learning opportunities to enhance professional growth. Additionally, we strive to educate the general public about nursing, aiming to foster a better understanding and appreciation for the vital work nurses do. Moreover, NCI places great importance on fostering a supportive community, where nurses can find encouragement, guidance, and camaraderie.

Our organizational structure is designed to maximize impact and reach. We have a general community that serves as a hub for discussions and collaborations. Building on the momentum generated within this community, we extend our activities to schools, ensuring that the vision of NCI is shared with aspiring nurses from an early stage. By nurturing a passion for nursing and instilling a sense of pride in the next generation, we lay the foundation for a stronger and more respected profession.

At NCI, we are driven by a collective commitment to promote nursing as a whole, transcending individual interests. We firmly believe that nursing has the power to bless those who embrace it. Beyond the noise and challenges, this profession has the potential to enrich lives and make a lasting impact on individuals, communities, and society as a whole.

Join us on this transformative journey as we continue to advocate for nursing excellence, elevate the profession, and shape the future of healthcare in Nigeria. Together, we can raise a generation of nurses who are proud, confident, and fulfilled.

What Our Coordinator Says:

Tobi Omolere

Until the lions learn to tell its own tales, every story will always favour the hunter. I believe it’s time for us as nurses to begin to paint the real picture of our profession exactly the way it is. We will be building a strong public profile for our lovely profession here at NCI and we hope you’d love our efforts and join us in any way you can.
