Nursing at UNISA University of South Africa 2024 – 2025

Nursing at UNISA University of South Africa | In 1975, the Department of Nursing Science, now the Department of Health Studies, was established under the leadership of Professor Charlotte Searle. The aim was to meet the need of thousands of nurses for post-registration distance education at the University level. The Department intended to provide access to education, but too many nurses could not meet the costs of traditional university education, or cope with the difficulties of attending a residential university. During the past 30 years, distance education for nurses and other health professionals developed to strengthen the health professions. Today it is a WHO Collaborating Centre. It provides a powerful means of education and development of the health professions in general and nursing in particular. The University of South Africa is a sub-chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International.

Healthcare problems within Africa demand concerted efforts in the re-evaluation of systems and methods for the effective education of health professionals. Acceptance of changing philosophies and methods of providing health care is essential. So is the concentration on appropriate research. The Department of Health Studies is prepared for the challenge of equipping its students with research skills and expertise to assist in reaching global health needs.
