Netcare Education, a division of Netcare, is regarded as one of South Africa’s leading private education and training institutions of healthcare professionals, both in nursing and ancillary care and emergency medical services.
Netcare Education comprises two faculties, with campuses in Johannesburg and Pretoria in Gauteng, Durban North in KwaZulu-Natal, Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape and Cape Town in the Western Cape. The Faculty of Nursing and Ancillary Healthcare (FNAH) provides formal education and training in the fields of nursing and ancillary disciplines, and the Faculty of Emergency and Critical Care (FECC) provides formal education and training in the field of emergency and critical care as well as first aid training for members of the public.
Netcare Education’s Faculty of Nursing and Ancillary Healthcare (FNAH) is dedicated to developing the clinical knowledge and practical skills of nursing students, nursing practitioners and other healthcare professionals.
This is achieved through combining theory with experiential learning in hospitals, thereby providing the best learning opportunity for developing knowledge, skills, attitude and values. Through collaboration, innovation and academic excellence in education, our students will be capable and skilled healthcare providers who are able to offer the best evidence-based practice and care to their patients.
Netcare Education and the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg have entered into an association agreement to provide programmes in nursing education in terms of the Nursing Act, No 33 of 2005 (as amended) the Higher Education Act No 101 of 1997 and other relevant health legislation, to students registered with Netcare Education for the programmes in Clinical Nursing Science (Regulation 212) as well as for advanced diplomas. The University of the Witwatersrand provides assistance with establishing and maintaining academic standards and is therefore represented at Netcare Education’s senate and council meetings.
