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




A list of payment codes provided below will assist SANC in detecting payments easily from our account so that deposits can be speedily processed.
