SUBJECT: South African Nursing Council says No to Xenophobia
DATE: 24 April 2015

 

SOUTH AFRICAN NURSING COUNCIL SAYS NO TO XENOPHOBIA 

The South African Nursing Council (SANC) condemns the attack on foreign nationals. South Africans need to be reminded that South Africa belongs to everyone who lives in it irrespective of the country of birth and also that we form part of the global community.

There are foreign nationals who are registered as nurses with the South African Nursing Council and together with the South African nurses are providing the much needed nursing care in our health establishments.

SANC would like to encourage all nurses in their different work environments to treat their colleagues and health care users who are foreign nationals with dignity.

SANC would also like to refer the nurses to the Code of Ethics for nurses in South Africa on our website.
