SANC warns against intake for nurses’ Bridging course


The South African Nursing Council (SANC) notes with concern that Clinix Health Group/Academy has published an advertisement for applications for admission into the Bridging Course for Enrolled Nurses leading to Registration as General Nurse.


“The public is again reminded that the last intake for the Bridging Course for Enrolled Nurses leading to registration as a General Nurse was in June 2019, and this institution is thus not approved for an intake for the Bridging Course. Enrolled Nurses are warned NOT to deposit money into an account of any institution for this programme. The SANC will not register any students who register for this course,” says Ms Sizo Mchunu, Registrar and CEO.
