LILITHA COLLEGE OF NURSING

Lilitha College of Nursing was established by the Education and Training of Nurses and Midwives Act 4 of 2003. The intent of the Act was to:

  • Repeal the different pieces of apartheid legislation that established the different Nursing Colleges in the Eastern Cape Province;
  • Establish one single College with five (5) main campuses and nineteen (19) Sub-campuses distributed throughout the Eastern Cape Province and strategically positioned to meet nurse training demands of the EC health system;

Programmes offered are based on the demands and priorities of the health system and demographics of the EC Province. The college offers both basic and post basic nursing programmes including specialist programmes. It has consistently produced large volumes of nurses to be permanently allocated to the clinical services for the province. The college embraces academic excellence in learning where generations of disciplinary knowledge are entrusted into nursing practice, research regarding human experiences of health, illness and healing, utilising Community-Based and Evidence-Based practice focusing on holistic relationship centred around a caring approach which facilitates the well being of individuals.

Lilitha College of Nursing (Main Campus) Principal Message

Lilitha College of Nursing, Eastern Cape. The college is a single nursing college constituted by five (5) main campuses and nineteen (19) sub campuses located across the province. It is one of the successfully rationalized and largest nursing colleges on the African continent. We aspire to empower nursing students from all Eastern Cape communities, including the deep rural areas, to succeed in their world by offering a wide variety of challenging, enjoyable and successful nursing curricula opportunities. Lilitha College of Nursing takes pride in assisting nursing students across all nursing academic programmes to grow and develop into sensitive and responsible citizens of the next generation in the health system.

Lilitha College of Nursing (Main Campus) philosophy as the college has always been meeting the needs of the individual nursing student. Lilitha College of Nursing, as an integral part of the Eastern Cape Department of Health, is dedicated to the pursuit of higher learning grounded in the arts, sciences and humanities.  The mission of the institution is directed towards diverse communities of the Eastern Cape Province and the college acknowledges values, fosters and benefits from the unique qualities, rich histories and wide range of cultural values in the province. The philosophy and mission of Lilitha College of Nursing is focused on collaboration, excellence, innovation, integrity and research within nursing.

Because the demands and accountability of the nursing profession are so great, nursing education must be a partnership between the student and the educator. To be successful the theoretical knowledge and the practical experience must go hand in hand for true learning to occur. Becoming a nurse requires the learning of the principles, analysing them and application thereof. The faculty believes that higher education in nursing is responsible for preparing nurses for professional and discipline-related roles through a competency based curriculum emphasising practice that is relational, reflective, responsive to the needs of the communities, respectful and caring. Thus, the college believes in the equivalent importance of both the quality nurse educator and the process of educating a nurse to prepare both entry-level and specialist nurses with a professional qualification.

Lilitha College of Nursing (Main Campus) is committed to promoting reflective practice and leadership for social change with inherent reciprocity among nursing practice, theory and research in all educational programs. A committed management both at central administration offices and institutional level, dedicated lecturers at both main and satellite campus level, blend to develop and create a professionally responsible citizen, caring and compassionate nurse.

In the 21st century, the digital revolution has affected us all. Quite simply, it is changing everything: a brilliant barrage of information, entertainment, companionship and education is speedily available. In this era of cut throat competition, it is of paramount importance to impart an integrated education to the future professionals of the nation for successfully facing health challenges and to be leaders in their respective field of activity.

Lilitha College of Nursing (Main Campus) commitment is to provide a safe, positive, intellectual learning environment that will empower students to become creative problem solvers, thinkers and inspired students prepared for life in the twenty-first century. I would like to continue setting high expectations for our students with regards to academic performance within the classroom and clinical setting, participation in co curricular activities as well as responsible citizenship at the college and in the community.

CURRICULUM FRAMEWORK:

Lilitha  College of Nursing curriculum model identifies theory-guided community based and evidence-based reflective nursing practice as the care competency area across all nursing programs. Outcome competencies expected of all nursing graduates encompass both core content and fundamental values of the professional discipline of nursing. The content area of all the nursing programs, as illustrated in the vertical strands on the curricula documents (human experience of health, illness, healing and death/dying; Primary Health Care context of health and health care delivery systems; and quality and cost effective outcomes), are integrated with the values, as is represented in the horizontal strands or the model (social justice and responsibility, diversity and cultural competence and relationship-centered caring).

The key concepts in the curriculum framework are derived directly from the college philosophy. These concepts include nursing competencies, reflective practice, diversity and cultural competency, relationship-centered caring, social justice and responsibility, practice inquiry including human experience of health, illness and healing, human technology interface, context of health and health care delivery and quality and cost effective outcomes.

These concepts are related in the curriculum framework in the following way. Reflective practice, integrating theoretical research and philosophical/ethical bases for practice, is the foundation of competent nursing. Reflective practice is grounded in the fundamental values and beliefs of the profession, which are expressed as essential nursing competencies including relationship-centered caring, commitment to diversity and advocacy for social justice. These constitute the horizontal strands of the curriculum model; they are constant, process oriented and focuses on the use of curriculum content.

Reflective practice occurs within the contexts of the four practice (General, Community, Psychiatry and Midwifery that reflect fundamental phenomena of the professional discipline. The four foci, comprised of the vertical strands on the model (the human experiences of health, illness, healing and death/dying, the human technology interface, environmental context of health and health care delivery and quality and cost effective outcomes) identify content areas such as concepts, theories and knowledge that guide building of the curriculum content. The vertical strands are progressive, building on previous content areas, and ensure development of breadth and depth at different levels within the educational process. Thus, specialization within one of the vertical strands progressively increases with the educational level.

The desired characteristics of program graduates reflect the curriculum framework and are conceptualized as an individual who embodies competent and effective reflective practice, generation of nursing knowledge and leadership and social change for improved health for individuals, communities, populations and global environments. These outcomes apply to all nursing degree programs with varying emphases as required by the specific degree. They are defined further in terms of overall and program specific outcomes competencies and guide the process to evaluate content level, course objectives and the competency evaluation process.
