The Democratic Alliance welcomes the re-opening of the Chris Hani Baragwanath Nursing College.
Training of nurses is absolutely critical to meet the needs of our health system.
It’s a pity that several weeks of study have been lost, and hard work will be required of staff and students to make up the lost time.
Student grievances should have been attended to far earlier, including the appalling living conditions at the nurses residence.
It’s very good news that the nurses residence will be rehabilitated, and hopefully the other issues will be settled too.
