Are you caring, compassionate and looking for an exciting and extremely rewarding career that offers an opportunity to develop and grow your knowledge and skills? Then nursing could be the career for you.
The healthcare industry in South Africa offers a wide range of opportunities for qualified nurses. Nursing blends medical science with the art of caring. Like all sciences it requires not only an in-depth knowledge of the subject and mastery of specific skills, but also an understanding that goes beyond the patient’s physical and biological needs and touches on their psychosocial and cultural needs as well.
