Nursing to Administration
The Department of Health learnership programme is very important for those of you who are looking for a job since it is the best way to utilize what was learnt in class and learn more practice and theory while in the field. The class is different from regular classes which the learner is going to operate from the bottom, whether in the office of department or in health centre.
The chances are higher for candidate who has undertaken a learnership because the employer recognizes that the candidate has the proper skills. There are a couple of Department of Health learnerships because this field has different division from nursing to administration.
