Nursing students threaten JHB college staff over certificate delays

Staff at a Johannesburg nursing college claim to be living in fear, following delays to the issuing of certificates to former students. The Star reports that this is according to Mpilo Royal College CEO Mduduzi Moyo who said that former students have been threatening to harm staff at the college for delaying for at least two years in handing out certificates.

However, Moyo said it wasn’t the college’s fault that the certificates were delayed. He said the Health and Welfare Sector Education and Training Authority (HWSeta) was the one to blame. The delays have resulted in former students not being able to have their names registered with nursing authorities. Moyo said HWSeta’s regional and head office were aware of the situation, but were doing nothing about it.

HWSeta learner achievement manager Hlamalani Ngcobo said they were not aware of the threats.

Ngcobo said the process was affecting all HWSeta skills development providers and employers.
