A big applause to our Employment Access Programme and the new Nurses Training Programme as they congratulate the first set of Foreign Nurses to complete the training!
In November, the EAP team launched the Foreign Nurses Training Programme, a programme which assists foreign nurses in completing a certification course in Home Based Care. Partnering with Robin Trust Nursing College, Scalabrini Centre offers sponsorship of course fees for candidates who are qualified nurses in their home country but who have been unable to register as a nurse in South Africa.
The Home Based Care certification will enable our clients to apply for work in the healthcare sector, as well as qualify them for the next level of nursing training. A total of twelve foreign nurses have undergone the training and nine have already completed the course, with the last three expected to graduate in April.
