Durban - A total of 1 926 new nurses will join the KwaZulu-Natal health department

They would graduate in Pietermaritzburg on Thursday, and it was hoped they would help improve service delivery, department spokesperson Chris Maxon said in a statement.

“The implications of doing nothing to improve nurse staffing are that a large number of patients will suffer avoidable adverse outcomes and government will continue to incur higher costs of care than are necessary,” he said.
