Abstract

The purpose of this study was to explore the perceptions of professional nurses regarding the bridging course in alleviating shortage of nurses at health care facilities of Amathole sub-district, Eastern Cape Province, South Africa. The target population was all the professional nurses currently employed in Amathole sub-district from five years and above. A simple stratified random sample of 149 professional nurses was drawn from the population. A structured questionnaire was used as an instrument for data collection using a five point Likert scale. The results indicated that the bridging course students help alleviate shortage of professional nurses in clinical areas in this sub-district. As such, it is imperative to retain the bridging course in order to sustain healthcare services.
