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 now to commence in January 2019 - a 1 year programme; and 
  • the DIPLOMA IN NURSING: STAFF NURSE (GENERAL NURSE) to commence in January 2019 - 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 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. - 

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 terms of our admission requirements) 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 commence admission procdures for the first intake of students for the January 2019 intake of the Higher Cerificate in Auxiliary Nursing at its ROODEPOORT CAMPUS soon. 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.  Admission procedures for our POTCEFSTROOM SUB-CAMPUS will follow as soon as the South African Nursing Council has finalised its accreditation processes.

Details for the 2019 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.
