Nursing School

The Nursing School at St Joseph’s Home was opened in 1974 and trained Enrolled Nursing Assistants up to 2000. It was dormant for a while but reopened in 2008.
St. Joseph’s Home is an intermediate paediatric care facility for children with life limiting and life threatening illness, situated in Montana, Cape Town, South Africa.
Child patients are referred by acute paediatric hospitals in the Western Cape such as the Red Cross Children's Hospital, Tygerberg, Victoria and Groote Schuur Hospital. Children whose caregivers are unable to manage their child's disease or are poverty stricken are referred to St Joseph's for healing and rehabilitation.
