Study information

Health assistant nurse, Nursing and Midwifery Training College Nalerigu. If he passes the job interview in June 2019, Nurudeen will start in September 2019.

Costs per year €515,- for a minimum of 2 years. He is expected to graduate in the academic year 2020-2021.


Nurudeen’s buddy is Ellis Meuleman, his sister in law.

In 2014 Ellis and her partner Bash started a program, together with Nurudeen, to visit schools in their neighborhood to provide medical aid to children, for example wound care. Unfortunately they could not continue the project because both brothers were not officially trained as nurses. Every time Ellis visits Ghana, she brings bandages and plasters with her, and Nurudeen delivers that at local health centres. Ellis knew Nurudeens’s wish to become a nurse in one of those clinics, however she and his family could not afford his education.

Ellis contacted iSTEPup in December 2018 and the application was completed in February 2019. Nurudeen was accepted for the iSTEPup programme in March 2019.
