Can SANC restore nurses in its register without application?

Yes, the South African Nursing Council can restore nurses and midwives in its register without the nurse or midwife applying.

However, SANC will only do this in a case where the nurse or midwife was mistakenly removed from the register.

The South African Nursing Council (SANC) will automatically restore the name of the nurse or midwife without the person paying an additional restoration fee.

Furthermore, if a person has been removed from the SANC Register erroneously, they can send their full personal and SANC details to SANC for the Council to make the corrections.

Additionally, If a nurse’s registration lapses, for example, they stop practising, they don’t revalidate, they don’t pay their fee, or they are struck off for some serious disciplinary reason, then they can no longer call themselves a Registered Nurse.

Can nurses resume practice without doing SANC restoration application?

All nurses and midwives who want to practice in the healthcare system in South Africa must be registered by the South African Nursing Council.
