Welcome to Stellenbosch University

Anaesthesiology and Critical Care


Anaesthetic nurses course

The Anesthetic Nurses' Course of Tygerberg Hospital started in mid 2014. Nurses working in a theatre environment, who are expected to assist anesthesiologists in their clinical proceedings, are encouraged to attend a 10-12 week training course presented by the Department of Anaesthesiology and Critical Care of Tygerberg Hospital.  This course is not professionally accredited and serves as in-house, in-service training for nurses working in the Tygerberg Hospital theatre complex, although we welcome attendance from outside the institution. Dates depend on the existing need for education as it arises. 

By understanding basic knowledge of the practice of anaesthesia, nurses become confident and skilled anaesthetic assistants, which improves patient safety and efficient theatre management. 

The Academic contact sessions are held on Wednesday afternoons from 14h00 to 15h30 in the theatre complex of Tygerberg Hospital.
