Nursing is a diverse field in which you can work not only in hospitals but in other healthcare facilities such as schools, correctional facilities, and even war zones. Before settling in any program, it is best to research different institutions to decide on the best package for you. Once you have decided on a specific training institute, visit the SA Nursing Council’s list of accredited Nursing Colleges in South Africa to verify its credibility since many private schools have yet to be certified.

One of the vital nursing requirements is the SANC registration, which you can do once you get your qualification. From there, you can begin to enjoy your fulfilling nursing profession or choose to get a master’s degree. This will further advance your profession as you will become a clinical nurse specialist or an advanced nurse practitioner.
