Caller raises concerns about the SA Nursing Council

There seems to be concerns with the way things are done at the South African Nursing Council.

According to a registered nurse, Hillary, nurses who are unable to study nursing through universities which takes four years have been notified that there are changes in the system.

She says the private college has been told not to enroll any nursing students as the council is reviewing the course offerings.

Another concern is that those who wrote exams to become registered nurses have recently been told that due to leaked exam papers, the exam they wrote has been deemed null and void.

Hillary says she is concerned that there wont be any experienced nurses as most nurses are very old, aged between 50 and 69.
