With the desired need of manpower to run and maintain the state hospital, clinics and health centres, the Niger State Government decided to establish the present School of Midwifery in 1982 which was then headed by Mrs F. M. Abu. An application for its establishment was then submitted to the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria and an initial inspection visit was made in 1983 to give a provisional approval for recruitment and training of two sets of Basic Midwives yearly, the first set in March, 1983 had a total number of 19 students. The Basic programme was run from 1983-1987. During the tenure of Mrs Jummai Mustapha, the second principal, the school began the post Midwifery Training and the Basic Midwifery was stopped. The first set of 45 students of post Basic Midwifery were admitted in 1986.

The school since then has worked closely with the Council, using their curriculum. The council on its own hand has

visited the school twice on inspection in 1995 and 1998 respectively following which the school has witnessed a dramatic change in physical structure, facility and manpower. At present, the recent development on upgrading of nursing education as manifested on the stand of the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria to not only affiliate all schools to the university out also to make general nursing the first entry point into the profession (Gombe 2005 Nurse Leaders Forum) the school is left with no option than to run only the Post-Basic Programme (Later to become Post-Graduate Diploma) in Midwifery when the Institution eventually will hopefully be part of state owned IBB University

To make an input towards achievement of the millennium development goal .

School Song/Anthem:

Blessed assurance learning is mine, Oh what a fortress of knowledge divine, Watching and waiting for changes galore, I must be with those to accept such change.

These are my feelings, these are my hopes, Being responsive to my clients’ need. These are my feelings, these are my hopes Being responsive to my client s needs.

Midwives be ready, we must match on Future is glorious that passes by gone We are now ready to match on with pride Nothing will stop us, the spirit is high

Safe birth for mothers, fathers and all Midwives are paused now, For this clarion call I am now ready to improve myself, Matching as always to maintain good health.
