Ukwazi School Of Nursing Application 2024/2025

Ukwazi School Of Nursing QUALIFICATIONS

The old (legacy) auxiliary nurse and enrolled nurse qualifications have been phased out by the SOUTH AFRICAN NURSING COUNCIL.

The following new nursing qualifications are being phased in

  • the HIGHER CERTIFICATE in AUXILIARY NURSING to commence in January 2024 – a 1 year programme; and
  • the DIPLOMA IN NURSING: STAFF NURSE (GENERAL NURSE) to commence in January 2024 – a 3 year programme.

UKWAZI SCHOOL OF NURSING has already been accredited by the COUNCIL ON HIGHER EDUCATION for both new qualifications and it is also registered by the SOUTH AFRICAN QUALIFICATIONS AUTHORITY for these qualifications. The SCHOOL has also been inspected by the SOUTH AFRICAN NURSING COUNCIL for the new qualifications (the first in the country), but the accreditation process must still be finalised.

Our sister company (UKWAZI SKILLS CAMPUS PTY LTD) offers a programme for the training of health care assistants which is accredited by the HEALTH & WELFARE SETA (it is not regulated by the SOUTH AFRICAN NURSING COUNCIL).  This programme will aid prospective nursing students who  do not have LIFE SCIENCES as a subject on their National Senior Certificate (or whose mark in Life Sciences is too low) in applying for admission to the new nursing qualifications as it includes foundational Anatomy and Physiology.  The course will still equip students with the required skills and competencies to find employment in the health care industry.


The School will conclude admission procdures for the first intake of students for the January 2024 intake of the Higher Cerificate in Auxiliary Nursing in June 2024 (provided all accreditation and registration processes are concluded by then).  It will finalise admission for the June 2024 intake in November 2024.  Students wishing to have their details recorded on a waiting list are invited to complete the prescribed form and to contact the School in that regard.

Details for the 2024 intakes of the Diploma in Nursing will be finalised later.  However, students intending to apply for admission can request the School to record their names on a waiting list so long.

An Information Brochure which explains the dates of all intakes; fees payable; course content; etc will be available from our offices in due course.  It will be available by fax; email; or personal collection.  You are invited to contact your campus of choice – Roodepoort or Potchefstroom (see tabs at the top of this page) for further information in this regard.
