South Africa has a nurse-to-patient ratio of 1:218, with a total shortage of over 44,700 professionals
It is important that individuals make sure that the institution they will be trained as a nurse or midwife is accredited by the South African Nursing Council (SANC).
The Nursing Council also makes sure that the institution’s training programmes are also accredited, allowing nursing students to practice in South Africa and beyond the borders of the country after them completing their training.
On the other hand, an unaccredited nursing institution and programme waste both time and money spent on the training.
Fortunately, SANC has a list of both public and private nursing schools, listed according to their respective provinces.
If you are interested in pursuing your dreams of being a nursing professional, the Khanyisa Nursing School is among the list of accredited private nursing schools in the Eastern Cape.
