Govt Introduces Ksh20,000 Indexing Fee for Nursing Students

As an indexing fee, university and college nursing students from public and private institutions must remit Ksh20,000.

This occurred after the Nursing Council of Kenya’s (NCK) proposition to raise the charge from the existing amount of Ksh9,550.

Teachersupdates.net has observed that nursing students enrolled at the University of Nairobi are reportedly in haste to remit the Ksh9,550 deposit before implementing the Ksh20,000 fee.

The Nairobi University Students’ Association (NUNSA) issued a notice to its members instructing them to remit the previous fee before implementing the new one.

“To avoid the additional fees, all comrades who are able and capable of doing so promptly should submit their payments,” NUNSA advised nursing students.

In contrast, the University of Nairobi Students Association (UNSA) intends to resist the action.

This is a strategy of divide and rule. “It will be medical students tomorrow instead of nursing students today,” a UNSA representative said.

The student leader stated that UNSA would examine every possible avenue to petition and oppose the nursing indexing fee doubling.

After completing their studies, the indexing fee will also impact students enrolled in midwifery programs to practice in Kenya.

Typically, students are obligated to remit the indexing charge within sixty days after their enrollment in a training institution.

The National Council of Kenya (NCK) states that the payment of the registration fee is justified as it enables the Indexing Section to verify submissions.

This verification ensures that students admitted to training schools fulfill the minimum admission criteria for their chosen program. The council emphasizes that the indexing details serve the purpose of tracking progress through training and determining eligibility to sit the council’s licensure examination.

Upon remitting the mandatory payment, the system allocates students a unique index number that functions as a permanent point of reference throughout their medical profession.
