Diploma course requirements for nursing training

By admin

Diploma course requirements:

• Senior Certificate that gives entrance to formal post-secondary education, preferably with mathematics, science and biology.

• Selection process – as for the degree.

• The number of subjects on higher grade/senior grade varies between colleges.

Training institutions other than colleges and universities also offer nursing training, but be careful: the government recently issued a warning about “illegal nursing colleges/training”. It is important to make sure that both the institution where you want to do your training as well as their training programme are approved by the South African Nursing Council. Their website (www.sanc.co.za) has a list of the approved nursing education institutions in the country. If the institution or its programme is not approved, your training will not be accepted anywhere in South Africa.
