Circular 11/2003 Criteria for registration of constituent assessors by SANC

Circular 11/2003 Criteria for registration of constituent assessors by the South African Nursing Council

2003-10-28

To all:    Nursing Education Institutions
             Nursing Stakeholders

 

Criteria for Registration of Constituent Assessors by the South African Nursing Council

 

  1. Background

The South African Nursing Council established under the Nursing Act, 1978 (Act No. 50 of 1978) as amended, is a statutory body that is charged with quality assuring of standards of nursing education and training.

In terms of Section 5(1)(a)(ii) of the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) Act, the South African Nursing Council was accredited as an Education and Training Quality Assurance Body in November 2000. As an ETQA, it has to fulfill the following functions:

Accredit providers of nursing programmes;
Promote quality amongst constituent providers;
Monitor nursing programmes;
Evaluate assessment and facilitate moderation amongst constituent providers;
Register constituent assessors for unit standards and qualifications falling within its primary focus;
Certificate learners;
Co-operate with relevant moderating bodies;
Recommend new standards or qualifications to National Standards Bodies or modifications to existing standards and qualifications;
Maintain a database of learners, providers, etc; and
Submit reports to SAQA.

In respect of assessment, the SANC – ETQA has the following role:

Evaluate assessment and facilitate moderation among its constituent providers i.e. nursing education institutions;
Formulate criteria for registration of assessors;
Register constituent assessors for specific registered unit standards and / or qualifications.
  1. Purpose of registration of assessor

In accordance with the ETQA Regulations, providers of education and training are required to have assessment systems (policies, procedures, review mechanisms) in place. For this reason, people who assess or intend to assess candidates against unit standards and /or qualifications need to undergo training according to the Generic Assessment Unit Standards accredited by the Education Training and Development Practices Sector Education Training Authority (ETDP/SETA). This will ensure consistency of practice in assessment, and will ensure that principles of assessment (fairness, validity, authenticity and consistency) are maintained.

Although it is generally acknowledged that people who have been involved in assessment processes such as teachers, trainers, nurse educators (tutors), managers and workplace supervisors are recognized as assessors, however, certification for the Generic Assessment Unit Standards is a requirement that should be obtained by undergoing training.

Providers of education and training are therefore expected to enable facilitators of learning in their employ to train as assessors by accredited providers of assessor training.

An updated list of accredited providers of assessor training can be obtained from the Education Training and Development Practices (ETDP) SETA at the address or on the ETDP SETA website.

are found not to be competent
are removed from the register for any reason.

Circular 9/2003 Request for comments on draft regulations concerning dress code and distinguishing devices

Circular 9/2003 Request for comments on draft regulations concerning dress code and distinguishing devices

28 July 2003

TO ALL:    Nursing Education Institutions, Non-Training Institutions and Stakeholders

 

Draft Regulations Regarding Professional Identification Devices and Dress Code for Nurses and Midwives

 

The Draft Regulations regarding Professional Identification Devices and Dress Code for Nurses and Midwives was published for public comment in Government Notice No. R.997 on 11 July 2003.

These draft regulations are intended to replace all existing regulations pertaining to distinguishing devices.

The primary objective of these Regulations is to replace the existing distinguishing devices with identification devices that:

Improve the control of nursing practice by preventing unqualified persons from practising as nurses;
Assist employers to access the Council’s database to verify qualifications of nurses; and
Assist health care users to easily identify information regarding the category of nurse providing nursing care.

The draft regulations focus on 2 areas:

1.    Dress Code: the primary focus of the dress code is to:

Maintain the professional image of the nursing profession;
Ensure that the dress code is appropriate for the context within which nursing care is provided;
Ensure that both the health care user and the nurse are protected; and
Grant the employer the responsibility to maintain an appropriate dress code.

2.    Identification devices: 2 identification devices will be issued:

An identification card containing all the relevant details of the nurse (format similar to a driver’s licence). This device will be linked to a database that will provide details regarding the qualifications and registration status of a nurse thereby providing employers with easy access to information to verify the details of a nurse. It will also assist with preventing unlicensed persons from practising the profession of nursing.
The second device is an identification badge that a practitioner will wear at all times while practising as a nurse.

Both of these identification devices are intended to replace the existing distinguishing devices.

Comments or representations must be submitted to the Department of Health, Private Bag X828, Pretoria, 0001 by 10 September 2003.

A copy of the draft regulations can be found on this website. (English / Afrikaans)
