About Us

DEFINITION


YOUNG: does not refer to age but rather a new vibrant, robust, radical and militant new way of thinking which will eradicate the old conversational way of thinking which has been an obstacle of progress in Nursing.

NURSES are regarded as a person/s who are involved directly or indirectly in nursing practice, formal or informal regardless of their nursing category, experience and rank employed by either government or private sector under the retirement age of 65 years.

INDABA: is a Nguni word which means “Dialogue/News/Debate”, we strived to start a difficult conversation in Nursing regarding the current oppression, segregation, marginalization which can no longer be ignored 23years later into democracy
