The Young Nurses Indaba Trade Union (YNITU) says the Health Department must provide an explanation for why Gauteng nursing student candidates are being left out in the lurch for the 2018 academic year.
Last week, The Democratic Nursing Organisation of South Africa (Denosa) raised the alarm over complaints from candidates who qualify for their Nursing Diploma but can’t study this year.
Prospective students have been informed that there is not going to be an intake for 2018.
YNITU President Lerato Madumo Gova says students had expected to start training on Monday.
It's vital that the department comes down and gives a thorough explanation about why students would be taken through psychometric tests , interviews and medical surveillance - and at the eve of them starting their training they are told that is no longer going to be possible. There is no one prepared to come forward to explain the situation.— Lerato Madumo Gova, President of Young Nurses Indaba Trade Union
Today should be their first day in class.— Lerato Madumo Gova, President of Young Nurses Indaba Trade Union
