Circular 4/2010 Cancellation of Bridging Course Paper 2 scheduled for 30 July 2010

TO:The Principals of Nursing Education Institutions

Cancellation of the Bridging Course For Enrolled Nurses Leading To Registration As A General Nurse Paper 2 Scheduled for 30 July 2010


The South African Nursing Council regrets that due to a serious breach in security it has had to cancel the above stated examination.

The South African Nursing Council learnt on 29 July 2010 that the examination papers that were sent to invigilators were intercepted and some learners had access to the examination papers prior to date on which they were due to write the examination.

In these circumstances the Council had no option but to take the decision to cancel the examination.  Furthermore we only learnt of the breach in security on 29 July 2010 which was a day after the First Paper for this programme was written on 28 July 2010.

The Council will be reconvening the above mentioned examination on 27 August 2010.  The Council needs some time to put in place tighter security measures to prevent the recurrence of such an incident in future examinations.

Kindly ensure that all the learners are duly informed of the situation and the new date of examination.  We also appeal to the learners not to contact the Council directly regarding this situation.

We sincerely regret the inconvenience and disruption this has caused the learners and the education institutions, your support and understanding in this matter is greatly appreciated.
