Warning against bogus nurse colleges

2011-04-06 15:23
Johannesburg - Illegal nursing colleges brought the profession into disrepute, the Democratic Nursing Organisation of SA's student movement said on Wednesday.

"We also want to caution everyone interested in nursing not to fall victim to illegal nursing colleges that have dragged down the dignity of this noble profession," the movement said in a statement.

It called on Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi and Higher Education Minister Blade Nzimande to tackle the problem of illegal nursing colleges. The call comes as the first Nursing Summit was underway in Sandton.

"... Bogus nursing colleges... rob the children of the working class their parents' hard-earned money by promising to give them an education and failing to deliver on their promises ... this is a heinous crime which must be condemned and fought against in all ways possible."

Denosa's student wing further called on young people interested in nursing to apply at accredited nursing colleges before the end of April.

It urged communities to encourage young people to enter the nursing field.
