The Nursing and Midwifery Council of Ghana have extended the deadline for the renewal of PIN/AIN for Nurses, Nurse Assistants, and Midwives. According to the NMC, this has been due to the pandemic that has disrupted business and operations.

- All PIN/AIN cards with the 3-year validity will cease to be valid after March 31, 2021.
