Annual Practicing Certificates for 2018
1. Payment Period
The South African Nursing Council (SANC) would like to remind all employers of nurses and midwives, both public and private sector, about the 2018 Annual Practicing Certificates’ (APCs) payment period which commenced on 1 July 2017 and ends on 31 December 2017.
The SANC would like to request employers to encourage nurse practitioners to pay for their APCs by no later than 31 December 2017 so as to avoid them having their names removed from the SANC register and having to pay a restoration fee.
2. Payment methods
The SANC would like to remind employers about the importance of utilising the E-register feature on the SANC website. The data published on this register suffices as a proof of registration for nurse practitioners and can be used by employers to verify the registration status of all nurse practitioners in their employment. The integrity of the database ensures that it is not necessary for employers to be presented with a physical APC certificate. The eRegister data base can be accessed by clicking here.
4. 2018 fee structure
The annual fees for 2018 for the different categories of practitioners are:
The SANC also offers reduced fees as follows:
Persons who are over 60 and 64 years of age on 1 January 2018 receive a 25% and 50% reduction respectively.
Your assistance in this matter is appreciated. If you have any questions regarding the APC payment or eRegister please contact Mr P Modiselle, Manager: Revenue Services at 012 426-9557 or firstname.lastname@example.org
