Nursing Education Institutions: Requirements for Submitting Learner Forms to South African Nursing Council

Attached, please find a copy of the document:


South African Nursing Council (SANC) is acutely aware that there is a need to improve service delivery with regard to processing of learners who are / must be registered in terms of the Nursing Act, 2005. With this objective in mind, SANC has prepared the abovementioned document – in order to standardize the manner in which Nursing Education Institutions (NEIs) communicate with SANC on these matters and vice versa.

The document covers all aspects of the learner’s education and training – from initial registration as a learner right through to registration of the eventual qualification at the end of the course.

NB:    Under the Nursing Act, 2005, all nursing learners are to be registered with SANC. Consequently, the word enrolled and other previously used words such as roll, enrolment, student, pupil, etc. will not be used anywhere else in this circular or in the abovementioned document.

While SANC appreciates that, for many institutions these requirements might mean making adjustments to standard operating procedures, the benefit to be derived will make the effort well worthwhile. SANC is sure that we can rely on the full cooperation of all NEIs in implementing these requirements. A speedy implementation of the requirements will benefit both the NEIs and the learners.

Educators and administrators are required to implement the requirements set out in the document in order to facilitate the efficient and effective processing of learner submissions and related matters. If you experience any difficulties or problems, please do not hesitate to call SANC for assistance on the numbers given below.
