DENOSA North West welcomes the intake of 50 students from legacy qualifications to enroll for R425

Media statement
Wednesday, 04 December 2019

The Democratic Nursing Organisation of South Africa (DENOSA) in North West warmly welcomes the decision by the Department of Health in the province to utilize the final concession provided by the South African Nursing Council (SANC) for the last intake of candidates from legacy qualifications to be enrolled for the four-year R425 programme towards becoming Professional Nurses.

Fifty students who will undergo the programme for the next four years are from Enrolled Nurses and Auxiliary Nurses, and they commenced with the programme on Monday, 2 December 2019.

DENOSA Provincial Office Bearers (POBs) started engagements with the department to have an intake from these groups several months ago.

We also note the challenges that the colleges face and believe that, based on our engagements with the department, these must and will receive attention.

The decision to have an intake is a benefit to nursing as a profession.
