How to Find Accredited and Registered Nursing Colleges in South Africa

SANC Accredited Nursing Education Institutions

One of the functions of the Nursing Council is to accredit nursing education institutions (NEI’s) and the training programmes presented by those institutions.  Council is empowered in terms of legislation to perform these functions.

The Nursing Act, 2005 – Section 42 of the Act makes it illegal for any institution in South Africa to provide education and / or training intended to qualify a person to practise as a nurse or a midwife unless both the institution and the programme of education and training are accredited by the South African Nursing Council .

In fulfilling these obligations, the Council is protecting the rights of;

the Public to receive care from a nurse or midwife who has received a high quality education intended to equip him / her to provide competent, compassionate and ethically based nursing care; and
the Learner to receive education and training that meets all the requirements for registration as a practitioner in South Africa

Illegal Institutions / Programmes

It is imperative that learners make sure that the institution where they will be trained as a nurse or midwife is accredited by the South African Nursing Council AND that the training programme (course) is also accredited by the Nursing Council .  If either is NOT ACCREDITED, the Nursing Council will not recognise any of the training the learner has received.  This means that the learner will not be able to practise in South Africa (or elsewhere) after completing the training.  All the time and money that the learner has spent on education and training will be wasted.

Often, such illegal institutions or institutions running illegal programmes try to protect themselves by giving their programmes obscure names like Pre-nursing and telling the prospective learner that by following such a course, the learner will be guaranteed entry into further nursing education (at the same or another nursing education institution).  There is no provision for such programmes in the Nursing Act, 2005 or in its regulations and no such guarantee.  The education and training regulations (available on this web-site) give minimum entry requirements for each nursing education and training programme.

The Nursing Council handles complaints or reports received about illegal institutions and/or illegal programmes operating in South Africa.

All allegations are investigated and, if it is found that an institution is operating illegally or running an illegal programme, the co-operation of the South African Police Services (SAPS) is sought in closing down the institution or programme.  SAPS is involved in this process because in terms of the Nursing Act, 2005 it is a criminal offence for someone to operate such an institution or to offer such a programme.

If you are aware of any institution that you think may be operating illegally or providing an illegal programme, please send full details to the Council so that the facts can be checked.
