A PROPOSED MODEL FOR CLINICAL NURSING EDUCATION AND TRAINING IN SOUTH AFRICA

The Nursing Education Stakeholders Group NES

Abstract


The Department of Health hosted a Nursing Summit in April 2011. The purpose of the Summit was to revitalise the nursing profession for a health life for all South Africans. The Summit afforded the nursing profession an opportunity to reflect on issues of central concern to the profession and health sector where reforms were scheduled to take place. It also was an opportunity to share ideas and energy relating to the long-term challenges confronting the nursing workforce in the health sector. The Summit considered seven themes, namely education and training; resources in nursing; professional ethos; governance, leadership, regulation and policy; positive practice environment; compensation and benefits; and nursing human resources for health. The Summit concluded with a Compact summarising the recommendations made which will be developed into a strategic plan by a Ministerial Task Team appointed to perform this duty.
