AMENDMENT OF GUIDELINES FOR THE BRIDGING COURSE FOR ENROLLED NURSES LEADING TO REGISTRATION AS A GENERAL NURSE OR PSYCHIATRIC NURSE (R.683 OF 14 APRIL 1989)

The South African Nursing Council has, over a period of time, observed that there is an overlap of content of Papers I and II of the above-named programme. This leads to a number of queries around the examination time.

The Council has therefore reviewed these guidelines as follows in order to assist the schools:

First Year Examination
Integrated General Nursing Science I

Paper I

  1. Basic Medical and Surgical Nursing with regard to patients with illness of:
    a)    Cardiovascular system,
    b)    Respiratory system;
  2. Operating Theatre Technique and Anaesthetics;
  3. Ethos and Professional Practice; and
  4. Applied Social Science.

Paper II

  1. Basic Medical and Surgical Nursing with regard to patients with illness of the:
    a)     Digestive system,
    b)     Genito-urinary system,
    c)     Ear, nose and throat nursing,
    d)     Ophthalmological nursing;
  2. Ethos and Professional practice; and
  3. Applied Social Science.

The implementation/application of these guidelines will be effective from the July 2006 Council examination.
