Northlink College, Parow Campus started a new course called Primary Health. It is the first time that the institution has offered a course of a health nature. It forms part oft he National Certificate (Vocational)/NC(V) general studies field and it will run for three years (Level 2-4). The core purpose of this course is to create better health and health awareness for all. It encompasses the basic level of health care.
The first two groups have received orientation from the College Student Support Services, MOT (a Norwegian based organisation) facilitators and speakers from the Health Training Institutions.
There are many possibilities for these students upon completion of the course. They will be eligible to study further in nursing; become a primary health care worker; a primary health care worker at special care organisations and work in health centres’ or any other health support careers given they meet the requirements of that institution they wish to apply to.
“In a nutshell our course entails basically everything that has to do with Primary Health awareness, how and what role we will be playing in our communities as well as how we can improve our own lives. It is about preventing illnesses and promoting health awareness,” said Harley Langisa, first year Primary Health Level 2 student at Northlink College.
Northlink had an overwhelming number of prospective students’ who showed interest and that applied for the course. At present, the College has 60 enrolled students and as a result two classes were formed to run simultaneously.

      Hi Charryl

      We do unfortunately not offer a nursing qualification. According to what you mentioned you have the qualification that we offer already. Therefore we would advise that you contact a University.

      Hi Zanele

      Thank you for your comment.

      The only requirement for the course is that you completed your grade 9. If you have completed grade 9 then you will be able to apply for the course.

    I want to study enrolled nursing bt i failed my grade 12

    • northlinkcollege October 20, 2014 / 10:51 am

      Hi Thandiswa,
      Thank you for your comment.
      We do not offer nursing but we do offer primary health that is a course that teaches you home based care giving for the elderly.

      You would only need grade 9 to apply for the course. This is a three year course and will give you the opportunity to get an equivalent of grade 12 after 3 years.

      Hi Celine

      Thank you for your comment.

      We do not offer nursing, but the course that you are talking about is Primary Health. That is a three year course and you would need grade 9 to apply for the course.

    • northlinkcollege October 20, 2014 / 3:32 pm

      Hi Brenda,
      Thank you for your comment.

      If you apply for the primary health course, then you could also apply for a bursary.You do need to adhere to the requirements needed for the bursary.

      If you do not meet the requirements set out by the bursary application then you would need to pay your tuition pf R8810 with 50% payable on day of registration.

      You can contact the College Call centre on 0860065465 for more information.
