Study At Ukwazi


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 - a 1 year programme; and 
  • the DIPLOMA IN NURSING: STAFF NURSE (GENERAL NURSE) - a 3 year programme.

UKWAZI SCHOOL OF NURSING has already been accredited by the COUNCIL ON HIGHER EDUCATION for both of the new qualifications and it is also registered by the SOUTH AFRICAN QUALIFICATIONS AUTHORITY for these qualifications. The SCHOOL has been inspected by the SOUTH AFRICAN NURSING COUNCIL for the new qualifications and both the main campus (Roodepoort) and our Potchefstroom sub-campus have been accredited for the new Auxiliary Nurse qualification. - 


The School will commence admission procdures for the first intake of students for the Higher Cerificate in Auxiliary Nursing at both its ROODEPOORT CAMPUS and POTCHEFSTROOM SUB-CAMPUS as soon as the South African Nursing Council has decided on the School's commencement of the programme.

Details of the first intake of the Diploma in Nursing will be finalised later.  

An Information Brochure (prospectus) 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.

Link to formal Application Form to be made available in due course.
