The Health Act (63 of1977) and the National Health Facilities Plan which was announced in 1980 provide a blueprint for a comprehensive health service and introduced a new era in the history of health care in South Africa. Because of her availability the nurse will have a key role in future comprehensive services and many new dimensions will be added to her role. Current statistics indicate that nursing education programs on basic and post-registration level need to be expanded and adapted to meet future trends. The time is ripe for a comprehensive basic training program which includes all four basic facets of nursing, that is, general, psychiatric, obstetric and community nursing.
