- Applicants need to complete an application form and submit it to OLG with their Grade 12 certificate, a certified copy of their ID and proof of the required deposit (2015 rate: R310.00) to facilitate the administration of their application and assessment.
- Applicants are then invited to complete an assessment and will receive an SMS confirming details of the assessment. Students are welcome to contact OLG telephonically to confirm any correspondence.
- Applicants write their pre-assessment, made up of four sections, at any of OLG’s centres in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town, Port Elizabeth and Durban. They must bring a pen and calculator to the assessment.
- Applicants achieving over 80% in all of the sections of the assessment are immediately fast tracked for the entry-level formal and accredited Netcare Education Nursing Programme for the next intake.
- Applicants achieving over 50% but less than 80% in all of the sections are able to join the eight-month Netcare Education Designate Programme (NEDP). Once successfully completed, applicants may apply for the Netcare Education Nursing Programme.
- Unfortunately, applicants who score less than 50% for any section do not qualify for either of the two programmes.

Since 2011, Netcare has had an exclusive contract with the Open Learning Group (OLG) to facilitate the application and pre-assessment procedure for those who want to apply for enrolment for a formal nursing programme through Netcare Education. The only way prospective students should apply for nursing programmes at Netcare Education is through OLG,” explains Toy Vermaak, manager: Faculty of Nursing and Ancillary Healthcare at Netcare Education.
The application process involves the writing of a pre-assessment to assess each applicant’s academic readiness. Students who obtain 80% or more in each of the four sections of this pre-assessment immediately qualify to begin studying with the next available intake of students for the first-year formal Netcare Education Nursing Programmes.
Those who achieve more than 50% but less than 80% for their assessment are eligible to join the eight-month Netcare Education Designate Programme (NEDP), which is run by OLG. After successful completion of the NEDP, students are eligible for admission to Netcare Education.
