The vision of the Nursing society (NURSO) is to become an organisation which plays an integral role in forming a relationship between the communities of Nelson Mandela University with its extended community across the Nelson Mandela Bay. The motive is to make a difference in our communities utilising our members and ensuring that the nursing students at Nelson Mandela University have a balanced environment of learning and living whilst at varsity. To increase the reach of the Society by extending to Higher Education Institutions that teach Nursing.



The vision will be achieved by implementing the following:

  • Creating leadership opportunities and cultivating leaders within the nursing department and the Nelson Mandela University at large
  • Ensuring that there are adequate opportunities for cross-cultural interaction between the community and Nelson Mandela University
  • Advocating and representing all nursing students irrespective of year level, beyond the classroom.
  • Participating in outreach projects
  • Giving back to the Nelson Mandela University community by supporting the Health Campus Clinic
  • Creating opportunities for nursing students to relax and unwind
