South African Nursing Council Mourns the Death of an Icon: Dr. NELSON ROLIHLAHLA MANDELA

10 December 2013

The South African Nursing Council mourns the passing on of our leader, Dr. Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela. His passing on is a loss not only to his family but also to the country and the nursing fraternity as a whole.

We take cognisance of the values Dr. Mandela upheld so dearly - caring, respect, selflessness, and will work towards ensuring that all members of the profession emulate these values. We salute the nurses that took care of Dr. Mandela. They indeed distinguished themselves as true ambassadors of this noble profession as they could have been under pressure to breach privacy and confidentiality but maintained them.

The nursing profession benefited from the struggle Dr. Mandela waged against apartheid. The South African Nursing Council is today a transformed organization following the demise of apartheid. We feel highly privileged to have reaped the fruits of his struggle.

We convey our heartfelt condolences to the Mandela family.

Prof. Busisiwe Bhengu
Chairperson
South African Nursing Council
