DENOSA urges potential student nurses tobeware of bogus nursing colleges by Idowu Olabode : January 23, 2015, 03:15:21 PM
As matriculants of 2014 are currently making up the long queues around the country’s institutions of higher learning fora space to enroll, the Democratic Nursing Organisation of South Africa (DENOSA) would like to urge those who will be pursuing a career in nursing to be extremely careful of fly-by-night nursing colleges this time of the year as they plan to take advantage of desperate students who are looking for placement.

Bogus nursing colleges are a normal feature during this time, which offer training that is not assessed and accredited by the South African Nursing Council (SANC), which is a regulatory bodyfor nursing in the country. Any nursing institution that is not accredited by SANC or a training programme offered by such institution to student nurses are not regarded as legitimate institutions and programmes.

Even if an institution is accredited, each and every programme offered to studentsmust also be accredited, or else such students won’t be able to practice as nurses in South Africa upon completion of their studies.

DENOSA would like to caution about the long process it takes for such institutions to reimburse students their monies when it is discovered by law enforcement agencies. The repayment process is so long that a student may not be able enrollat any other accredited institution in the same year, as closing dates would ordinarily have long passed.

Potential nursing students and their parents should first check with the South African Nursing Council (SANC) if the nursing institution they intend to study at is accredited by visitingwww.sanc.co.zaorcall SANC call centre on 012 420 1000. SANC has a list of all accredited nursing institutions in each province, both public and private.

DENOSA would like to encourage those young people with a passion for caring and nursing to pursue a career in the profession, as the country is experiencing a shortage of nurses. The average age of a nurse in South Africa is over 40 years, which is an indication that nurses nearing retirement are in the majority in the profession.
