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.

To hear more of the troubles in the SA Nursing Council, listen below:

702 welcomes all comments that are constructive, contribute to discussions in a meaningful manner and take stories forward.

However, we will NOT condone the following:

  • Racism (including offensive comments based on ethnicity and nationality)
  • Sexism
  • Homophobia
  • Religious intolerance
  • Cyber bullying
  • Hate speech
  • Derogatory language
  • Comments inciting violence.

We ask that your comments remain relevant to the articles they appear on and do not include general banter or conversation as this dilutes the effectiveness of the comments section.
