The South African Nursing Council (SANC) was pleased to host this key event where in the engagements were about  The Future of Nursing.

The SANC is a statutory body entrusted to set and maintain standards of Nursing Education and Practice in the Republic of South Africa, to protect the public. It is an autonomous, financially independent, statutory body operating under the Nursing Act, 2005 (Act No. 33 of 2005).

The Council of the SANC is constituted in terms of the Nursing Act, 2005 (Act No. 33 of 2005). The tenure of the current and 16th Council of the SANC is from 2018 – 2023 and will end in August 2023.

The Indaba program thus contained a focus on the milestones achieved by the 16th Council, and in addition, provided a wide variety of topics that affect Nursing as a whole.

We were grateful to have several subject experts who  presented on the programme topics and at the same time stimulated networking regarding the key issues that affect our valued profession.
