denosa thumb medium60 92EWN reports that the Democratic Nursing Organisation of SA (Denosa) says it has on multiple occasions tried to meet with the South African Nursing Council (SANC) to deal with issues surrounding the process of nurses obtaining their practicing licences.  

On 26 January, a nurse from KZN collapsed while in the queue at SANC’s only offices in Pretoria, and died on arrival at the hospital.  Denosa said her death was completely unnecessary because the council should have branches in every province.  Because its calls to meet with the council have fallen on deaf ears, the union will be marching to the council’s offices on 22 February.
