Nursing

The Department of Nursing Science offer no bursaries to students. Students are therefore encouraged to secure financial aid for their studies before registration or apply for a bursary with the Department of Health. Completing the application form and communicating with the Department of Health is the responsibility of the student.

If bursaries become available (and there is no guarantee), the money will be paid into the student’s account and is managed by the University’s finance office. The student’s tuition fees and other related fees will be deducted from the amount. Accommodation will be deducted for the year if she/he is residing in a Provincial Nurses home. The balance will be paid out to the student, in equal amounts, over a period of 12 months.

Students do not “work” during the 4-5 years of their study. They have to get practical experience and learn how to do certain clinical skills which can only be done in the surrounding hospitals and clinics. These practical hours that the students have to do are set (prescribed) by the South African Nursing Council.

Students that do not complete the prescribed amount of clinical hours cannot be registered as qualified nurses at the South African Nursing Council on completion of their programmes, and will therefore not be able to work as a professional nurse in South Africa.
