DUE DATE FOR ANNUAL LICENCE FEES FOR NURSES

According to the Nursing Act, 1978 nurses are compelled to register with the council and pay an annual license fee before they are permitted to practice nursing.

The closing date for payment of the annual licensing fees for nurses is Thursday, 31 March 2005. It is vital for nurses practising to pay their annual licensing fees before the due date. A nurse that fails to pay the license fee before this date, will be removed from the register. The removal of a nurses names from the register/roll will impact negatively on their employment status as such person can is not permitted to practice nor be employed as a nurse.

Nurses who have not paid their annual licensing fees are advised to do so before the closing date, as practising while off the register constitutes a professional misconduct and could lead to disciplinary action against him/her.
