- The International Central Gospel Church’s Central University is an educational initiative (ICGC).
- It grew out of an ICGC-run short-term pastoral training course that began in October 1988. It was then renamed Central Bible College and incorporated in June 1991. The name was changed to Central Christian College again in 1993. The College then updated its programs to the bachelor level and enlarged its programs to include an integrated and practice-oriented business school, known as Central Business School, in line with national goals.
- In 1998, the university was renamed Central University College to reflect its new status as a liberal arts tertiary institution. Since then, it has been accredited as a tertiary institution by the National Accreditation Board.
- It is co-educational, with male and female students having equal access. The Central Business School (CBS), the School of Architecture and Design (SADe), the School of Graduate Studies (SGS), the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS), the Faculty of Law (FOL), the School of Pharmacy (SOP), the School of Engineering and Technology (SET), and the School of Medicine and Health Sciences (SMHS) are the eight (8) faculties/schools at Central University (SMHS)
- The Institution College got the long-awaited Presidential Charter to become Central University, an autonomous and fully-fledged university.
- The enormous number of SSS graduates who apply each year for admission to nursing training programs demonstrates that there is a strong interest in nursing education. Because of the restricted capacity in nursing training programs, a considerable number of applicants with great scores who qualify for admission are not chosen.
- The Nursing Program at Central University College will supplement the number of nurses trained in Ghana’s health sector by the Ministry of Health and other institutions. It would also provide a much-needed opportunity for SSS graduates to strengthen their skills. It will also provide an opportunity for practicing nurses to further their education (State Registered Nurses – SRNs and Diplomates).
- The philosophy of the Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree program is based on the Central University (CU) mission statement, which includes unmistakable Christian affirmation, devotion, professional excellence, responsible citizenship, and service to society, as well as a focus on the central concepts of nursing, which include health, nurses, people, and the environment.
- Nursing is a complex interpersonal process aimed at promoting, maintaining, and restoring health. It covers a wide range of services for individuals, families, and communities with various needs. It is a one-of-a-kind company whose employees are trained in assessing, planning, implementing, and evaluating health care utilizing the nursing process approach (scientific tool for nursing).
