Emmanuel is registered and accredited with the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) 2018/HE07/005, the Council for Higher Education (CHE) and the South African Nursing Council (SANC) to offer the following course(s):
Our courses have a theoretical and practical component. Learners are expected to take responsibility and accountability for their own studies as the programme is based on the principles of outcomes-based-education, or adult learning as it is also referred to. Initial learning takes place in the classroom environment and practical procedures are demonstrated to learners prior to attending clinical facilities. Once competent, learners are placed in clinical facilities such as hospitals, retirement villages and frail-care units and clinics, where they are provided the opportunity to apply the foundational and procedural knowledge they have obtained in the classroom in the clinical environment under supervision of a registered nurse acting as a mentor for learners.
This qualification serves to provide learners with the basic knowledge, affective, cognitive and conceptual tools and practical techniques for additional higher education studies in nursing. The knowledge emphasises general principles and the application thereof in the provision of basic nursing care. This qualification signifies that the learner has attained a basic level of higher education knowledge and competence in nursing and is capable of applying such knowledge and competence in the workplace.
