    Background: There is overarching evidences that Nigeria nurses awareness and participation in National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) continue to decline. This however has far reaching effect on the nurses’ propensity to disseminate the benefits of the health insurance scheme to their clients to reduce out of pocket payment. The thrust of this study is to assess nurses’ awareness of the NHIS-VCSHIP in Nigeria.
    Method: A descriptive survey with sample size (n=20) was conducted at University College Hospital Ibadan. A structured, closed ended questionnaire was used to elicit information about nurses’ awareness on NHIS and VCSHIP in general via a convenience sampling technique. Questionnaire input was purely based on researchers’ field experience.
    Result: Findings shows that 70% of the respondents were within 31-40 years old with a mean of 38.87±16.32.70% are also BSc. graduates with 6-15 years of experience. Generally, participants demonstrated inadequate awareness of the content of NHIS programme. 35% of nurses are aware of NHIS while 65% are not aware. Also, 55% of the nurses are aware of VCSHIP while 45% are not aware. There is no correlation between nurses socio-demographic characteristics and nurses awareness of the NHIS-VCSHIP
    Conclusion: Nurses awareness about NHIS-VCSHIP in Nigeria is abysmally low which also translate into patients’ inadequate information and poor enrollment in NHIS programmes. It is recommended that nursing continue education, policy and polity should be scale up to improve nurses awareness of the scheme to reduce out of pocket healthcare financing.

    Introduction: Nursing education is a recognized distinct discipline comprising of conceptual frameworks, models and theories. The integration of nursing theories into clinical practice is helpful in providing quality patient care.
    Objective: to assess the applicability of the Betty Neuman Systems Model in the nursing care of a patient with moderate to severe COVID- 19.
    Methodology: A clinical case was studied to assess the applicability of the Betty Neuman Systems Model in nursing care of a patient with moderate to severe COVID- 19 admitted in a COVID unit of a selected tertiary level care facility.
    Results: We evaluated a patient with COVID-19 having moderate to severe illness according to Betty Neuman Systems model. We assessed the patient for all kinds of intrapersonal, interpersonal, and extra-personal stressors. After taking a detailed history and performing physical examination, 14 nursing diagnoses were framed based on North American Nursing Diagnosis Associations’ Taxonomy (NANDA, 2020). On the basis of obtained data, nursing care was planned on three levels of prevention. The data from the patient was further used in classifying nursing interventions and describing the outcomes.
    Conclusion: The case study suggests that Betty Neuman Systems model can be used as a framework by nurses in providing quality nursing care to COVID-19 patients.
