Coronavirus update

Update to nursing profession

UPDATE TO NURSING PROFESSION and relevant Stakeholders about the Council’s Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and specifically planning and implementation progress

The South African Nursing Council (SANC), in line with the provisions of the Nursing Act, 2005 (Act no. 33 of 2005), is in the process of developing a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) System. This process commenced in 2013. To ensure reasonable participation in this process, the SANC established a CPD Technical Working Group (TWG) to assist it to drive the project. The development of the CPD system is a response to the need expressed by the profession and the process of CPD seeks to ensure that Nurse Practitioners remain up-to-date with the required competencies of their specific areas of practice in Nursing. It is also seen as a mechanism that will provide opportunities to practitioners to pursue and achieve professional growth throughout their careers to benefit the people of South Africa.

It is anticipated that CPD will become compulsory by mid 2018.
