Change of the Date for Practitioners to Start Paying for the Annual Practising Certificates for the Year 2015 from the 1st of July to the 1st of August 2014

The South African Nursing Council would like to inform all practitioners and employers that the date for practitioners to start paying for the Annual Practising Certificate for the calendar year 2015 has changed from the 1st of July 2014 to the 1st of August 2014.  Also note that the final date in which practitioners will be able to pay for their Annual Practising Certificate for 2015 without attracting a penalty has also changed to the 31st of January 2015.

As a result, the Annual Practising Certificates shall only be available from the 1st of August 2014 and not from the 1st of July 2014.  Nurse practitioners who wish to pay their 2015 Annual Fees and to collect their Annual Practising Certificates in person at SANC Offices are advised to plan to do so from the 1st of August 2014 and not before that date.

However, payments into SANC bank account and electronic payments can be done as soon as the fees are published in the Government Gazette (these will be published simultaneously on SANC website and Facebook Page) and the Annual Practising Certificates will be printed and posted immediately after the 1st of August 2014.

Please assist the Council by informing your employees and colleagues of these changes.

You are welcome to contact SANC call centre on 012 420 1000 for further enquiries on this matter.

Payment of South African Nursing Council Prescribed Fees at the First National Bank Automated Teller Machine (ATM)

The South African Nursing Council (SANC) would like to encourage nurse practitioners to make use of the ATM ADVANCE machines at First National Bank branches, to deposit cash for the payment of any fees prescribed by the South African Nursing Council.

The benefits accruing from this method of payment are as follows:

No more standing in branch teller queues
Deposits can be made after business hours
Reference numbers can be inserted when making deposits
This method of payment can be used even if you are not a First National Bank (FNB) client
It is quick, easy and secured

To make this process beneficial to everyone, SANC will also ensure that any prescribed fees are rounded off to eliminate any inconvenience.

First National Bank (FNB) has implemented new requirements when making payments into the South African Nursing Council’s reference deposit account.  Nurse practitioners must provide a 15 character payment reference consisting of their 8 digit SANC REFERENCE NUMBER followed by a 7 CAPITAL LETTER payment type code

Cancellation of the South African Nursing Council (SANC) Examination Question Papers for Final Enrolment as a Nurse (R.2175) for the following electives: General, Community, Psychiatric and Nursing Care of the Aged to be written on 12 May 2014

It has come to our attention that the courier vehicle which was transporting SANC examination papers for the Final Enrolment as a Nurse (R.2175) for the following electives: General, Community, Psychiatric and the Nursing Care of the Aged to some Nursing Education Institutions (NEI’s) was hijacked.  These examinations were scheduled to be written on 12 May 2014. You are therefore informed that all the original examination papers referred to above are nullified and must not be distributed to candidates on 12 May 2014.  (These papers are printed on WHITE paper.)

NB:  For those NEI’s that have received their examination boxes earlier from the courier, the Main Invigilators should take out from the previously sent examination boxes only the following examination materials: answer books, attendance lists, claim forms and Courier waybills for sending back the examination material to SANC.  The new boxes with different examination papers are being couriered to your NEIs.  White cable ties have been used on these boxes, to distinguish them from the ones previously dispatched to your NEI’s dated 12 May 2014.  The replacement papers are printed on peach coloured paper.

Main Invigilators will receive two (2) security codes via SMS on 12 May 2014 to open the examination boxes in order to retrieve the contents.

Kindly communicate with the following personnel in Assessments Section in case of problems encountered on the day (12 May 2014) of the examination:
