For auxiliary nursing you just need to pass grade 9/matric. For enrolled nursing, you have to have had the subjects I mentioned earlier. For the bridging course, you need to be a paid member at SANC. You pay a fee each year to be on their roll of registered nurses. If you haven’t paid the council with your yearly fees, they will scrape you off. They’ll ask you how well you did in past courses when you apply for the next level course and then decide from there whether you’re accepted or not.

Mediclinic is implementing a 3 year staff nurse course and a 4 year registered nurse course.  It’s still up and coming so I don’t know that much about it. The last intake for the bridging course is in July 2017. It is the last intake ever. Then the new qualification courses kick in. SANC requires a 45% pass rate. But Mediclinic requires 70%. Practical’s are always 70%. Theory exams require 50% from Mediclinic.
