DO I NEED TO DO ANY COMMUNITY SERVICE AFTER COMPLETION?
After completion of studies, new nurses are required to complete a one year remunerated community service at a public health facility before entering the workforce.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A NURSING DEGREE AND A DIPLOMA?
After four years of study, students from the college and university graduate as Professional Nurses. The main difference between the diploma and the degrees is the academic level at which students complete their studies.
