LASCON debunks sale of admission forms for nursing, midwifery courses
The Lagos State College of Nursing (LASCON), Igando has debunked the viral social media posts/adverts regarding the sale of admission forms into the College for General Nursing, Midwifery or Post Basic Nursing programme for the 2023/2024 academic session.
A statement issued by the management of the college on X (formerly Twitter) on Thursday was used to debunk the report.
It stated that the general public, especially those seeking admission into the college, should be wary of fake online posts/adverts.
The fake online post had also implored them to call a certain number to purchase admission forms or register online through a malicious notification link.
“LASCON has nothing to do with the fake viral posts/adverts,” the statement read in part.
It added that it is the handwork of faceless and dubious-minded individuals who are using the College’s name and logo to scam unsuspecting prospective candidates and other members of the public.
The release reiterated that admission into the Lagos State College of Nursing is now strictly through the Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) and prospective candidates must have scored 200 and above.
“Also, the Institution does not offer a two-year Post Basic Nursing Programme as alleged by the advert,” LASCON wrote.
It added that the admission process for the 2023/2024 academic session has been concluded.
LASCON in the statement also urged the members of the general public to always verify the source of the information before acting on them.
Interested applicants have also been advised to pay a visit to the institution for further inquiries on its admission process.
