Centre for Teaching and Learning Scholarship (CENTALS) take the lead!


The School of Nursing received the Award for Academic Scholarship and Research from Atlantic Philanthropies (AP) earlier in 2014. AP invested funds to strengthen the nursing sector in South Africa. Outstanding projects were identified in the evaluation of the funded nursing programme. The CENTALS project on Preceptorship was identified as one of these projects. As consequence, the AP appointed a consultant who will undertake this case study during 2014 and 2015 to collaborate with the broader stakeholder base in nursing and the health sector. The aim is to replicate best practices and lessons learnt from the findings of this project at regional and national level. It is hoped that the results and findings of the Preceptorship project will have a positive impact on the healthcare of communities and strengthening nursing education, practice and research.

FUNDISA acknowledged that CENTALS produced the largest number of publications of all departments of Nursing in South Africa in 2013.  All academic staff in the SoN will contribute to two special nursing editions of the SA Journal of Higher Education and the African Journal of Physical, Health Education, Recreation and Dance (AJPERD) will also be published end of 2014. Two further special editions will be driven by CENTALS in 2015 (Curationis) and 2016 (Africa Journal of Nursing and Midwifery), to be aligned to the sustainability plan submitted to Atlantic Philanthropies (AP) by the SoN.​
