Denosa's grievances began when a leaked exam paper was cancelled resulting in students told they would need to rewrite the paper.

Last week, reports emerged alleging that the South African Nursing Council's premises were set alight and destroyed after exams for nursing students were cancelled.

Simon Hlungwani, President of Denosa (Democratic Organisation of Nurses in South Africa) says the allegations are untrue.

Hlungwani explains that on June 14, the South African Nursing Council (SANC) released a circular, to colleges, saying they have nullified all exams already written because of a leaked exam paper.

In other words; they will not release the results of students who had written a bridging course.

Hlungwani says since June, their attempts to hold engagements with the South African Nursing Council have been unsuccessful.

When there is a claim of any allegation of a leaked exam we fully support any investigation into the matter.

Hlungwani says he has a problem with the nurses council for 'punishing' every student when it could be dealing with the culprits responsible with leaking an exam paper. Asking all student to rewrite the exam is unreasonable says Hlungwani.

They are punishing people without solving the problem.
