Circular 3/2017

26 June 2017

TO: Principals of the Nursing Education Institutions

 

Cancellation of the Examinations for the Bridging course for Enrolled Nurses leading to registration as a General Nurse / Psychiatric Nurse: Government Notice No.R683 of 14 April 1989 (as amended)

 

1. Purpose 

 

To inform the Principals of the Nursing Education Institutions (NEIs) of the amendment of Circular 2/2017 and the revised examination dates.

 

2. Background

 

2.1 The Judge of the Gauteng North High Court (Judge Fabricius) passed a judgement on 26 June 2017, upholding the decision of the Nursing Council that the above-mentioned May 2017 are nullified and that they must be re-written. A settlement was reached that the examination dates be re-scheduled to allow students more time, considering the disruptions that have occurred over the past week 

 

The agreed-upon dates for the examination as follows:

First year examinations for the Bridging Course for Enrolled Nurses leading to registration as General Nurse/Psychiatric Nurse  Date on which the examinations are to be written
Paper 1 19 July 2017
Paper 2 21 July 2017

 

Second year examinations for the Bridging Course for Enrolled Nurses leading to registration as General Nurse/Psychiatric Nurse  Date on which the examinations are to be written
Paper 1 19 July 2017
Paper 2 21 July 2017

 

The copy of the order regarding the agreement on the above-mention dates is attached for your convenience

2.2 Kindly ensure that all the learners are duly informed of the new dates of the examinations. We also appeal to the leaners not to contact the SANC about the revised dates but rather the Principals of the NEIs.

2.3 Your continued support and understanding in this matter is highly appreciated. 

 

3. IMPLEMENTATION

This circular becomes effective and implementable on the date of this circular.

All enquiries must be directed to the Manager, Assessment Section: Ms E. Magagula. Tel. (012) 426 9596. E-mail emagagula@sanc.co.za

 

Yours sincerely

(Signed)
