Circular 16/2013 Learners must download regulations which were formerly issued to them

Regulations Issued by the South African Nursing Council on Successful Registration of Learner/s into a Nursing Education Programme



To inform all relevant parties about changes relating to issuing of regulations to learners on registration with the South African Nursing Council.



The South African Nursing Council used to issue hard copies of regulations relevant to the programmes that learners have been registered into.  These regulations were packaged and sent by either courier or postal services to the respective Nursing Education Institutions.  To improve turnaround time and to reduce the operational cost related to courier and postal services, the South African Nursing Council will post these regulations on the SANC website.



The Council resolved that, it will no longer post these regulations except registration certificates of learners.  Nursing Education Institutions are required to download relevant/applicable regulations once the certificate of registration as a learner has been issued.  Applicable regulations are downloadable at on the Publications/Regulations/Index to Regulations page (follow the links or click this link to go straight to the correct page).
