James, Ms LV to ask the Minister of Health

Whether any mechanisms have been put in place to absorb newly graduated nurses into the public health system?


All newly-graduated nurses are required to undertake one year of community service in the public sector. On an annual basis posts are identified by the Provinces and applicants are allocated by the National Department of Health. As this is a statutory requirement all the necessary posts are made available in those areas with the greatest need.
