The study focused on the developing An Admissions Management System for Nursing Schools, to provide for management-oriented reporting. The purpose of this study was to examine what students and staffs perceive are the advantages and disadvantages of the proposed admission system. The main research problem was due to the fact that the school uses a manual system of admitting students, keeping records in files and books with no backups and difficulty accessing students’ records. The objective of this study was to analyze and design an application to solve difficulties faced while dealing with student’s information in the admission. For the purposes of this study a descriptive design methodology was used to assess the experiences of the school and students involved in the KSNM admission program. The information required was gathered through; Observation, Existing documents, Interview, Questionnaire etc. to consider research design, research population, instrument, data gathering procedures and data analysis. The study found out most participants by type and age were students while lowest were staff and by designation were tutors while lowest were clinical instructors. Most students said that the old system is poor. The study concluded that an AMSNS is meant to be one of the most needed sources of benchmark information that would provide better performance for the school or organization at large. The researcher recommends that incase of any errors, documentation of the new system should always be updated and further user training.
