                     CONTACTS
    1.1    Word of Welcome by the Director, School of Nursing Science
Welcome to the School of Nursing Science, North-West University (Potchefstroom Campus). We
trust that your involvement with us will be an enriching experience, on a personal and professional
level. The post basic programmes in Nursing are offered by the School of Nursing Science and
delivered by the Unit for Open Distance Learning (UODL). We are proud of the contribution made
over the past decade to prepare professional nurses as Managers, Educators, Primary Health Care
Practitioners and Community Health Care Practitioners.
Interactive whiteboard sessions at learning support centres on dedicated Saturdays are compulsory,
as it is evident from research and student feedback that our throughput rate is amongst the highest
in the country. During these sessions the emphasis is on learning not teaching. Students are
expected to take part during these sessions as there is direct contact with the lecturer. We also
provide interactive study guides. The purpose of these guides is to provide you with answers to
many of your possible questions and give guidance with the utilisation of your prescribed literature.
Please take time to read through these guides thoroughly in order to prepare you with the
information you will need.

Mrs E Bornman
Acting Director of the School of Nursing Science

    1.2    A Word of welcome by the Chief Director: Student Academic Life Cycle
           Administration and Unit for Open Distance Learning
The North-West University, the second largest university in South-Africa besides UNISA, has a Unit for
Open Distance Learning that takes care of the administration and operations of more than 20 000
students. Through its UODL, access is given to students who would otherwise never have had the
opportunity to study at a university. Modern technology and Wi-Fi- are used to provide teaching and
learning for ODL students, and operational support s is delivered to students at more than 70 learning
support centres in South Africa and Namibia.
The School of Nursing in the Faculty of Health Sciences currently has more than 300 students enrolled
in different Advanced Diplomas. The School is busy developing new programmes and will soon deliver
these to students via ODL. One of the main goals of the NWU in future is to further develop its ODL
programmes from different faculties. ODL is the only way to provide access to higher education for
students in rural areas and also to working people. The NWU is committed to fulfil these goals and
subsequently afford social justice to students.

1.6    Language
                The entire programme was approved as an English medium programme. Therefore, the language
                of interactive study guides, assignments, tests, examinations, videos and group discussion sessions

                    1.7    Introduction to Open Distance Learning (ODL)
                Open Distance Learning (ODL) refers to a mode of delivery and a teaching and learning approach
                focused on increased access to education and training whereby possible obstacles in terms of time,
                place and learning tempo are removed. Students are able to study at their own pace, in a time suitable
                for them. On-going support for students in the Open Distance Learning system is available
                electronically, telephonically or through personal contact.

PART 4: ACADEMIC INFORMATION

                    4.1        Learning cycle and study process

                Steps        The Learning Cycle

                Step 1:      Preparation for group discussions
                             The post basic programmes are built on the principles of adult learning whereby the student
                             takes responsibility for his/her own learning. The objective of contact sessions is to enhance
                             the learning opportunity through structured group discussions. Facilitators and lecturers
                             enter the class room with the perspective that students are prepared. The interactive white
                             board lectures, study guide, text books and eFundi are available to support students to be
                             prepared for discussions. Please refer to the study schedule and prepare your time wisely.
                Step 2:      Compulsory attendance of 75% of contact sessions
                             In general, all theory modules are presented over four contact sessions except NSHT and
                             NSKT which are presented over six contact sessions. 75% attendance of contact sessions
                             is compulsory for exam entry. A new attendance register will be completed at each contact
                             session.

                Step 3:      Active participation in group discussions
                             The learning support centre manager and the facilitator are responsible to provide to
                             students a conducive learning environment. All contact sessions will be conducted via
                             interactive whiteboards. Facilitators will facilitate contact sessions only when required
                             and will require active participation in group discussions.

                Step 4:      Submitting assignments and writing semester tests
                             Please view the table below for more detail regarding assignments submission dates.
                             Assignments should be submitted via the assignment boxes provided or electronically.
                Step 5:      Get feedback on assignments and tests
                             Marked assignments will be posted back to students with a markers rubric.
                Step 6:      Submission of practica portfolio’s (when applicable) (see dates indicated in the
                                     applicable practica module portfolio).
                Step 7:      Writing examinations
                             See Part 7.

                    4.4         Study help
                When studying you are on your own without being left alone. The following academic support is
                available to all our students:

                                     All contact sessions are facilitated by the module managers positioned on the
                Lecturing
                                     Potchefstroom Campus of the NWU and through interactive whiteboards.

                                     Students have access to a facilitator at the learner support centre. It is important to
                Support by
                                     emphasise that the facilitator is not responsible for lecturing, but is rather
                Facilitators
                                     facilitating the group members to find the answers amongst themselves. Therefore
                                     it will be of little use, if you the student attend the sessions without proper
                                     preparation and expect all the explanations from the facilitator.
