The Democratic Nursing Organisation of South Africa (DENOSA) was established in December 1996 to unite the nursing profession. DENOSA has the presence in all nine provinces and represents nurses across the country and is currently the largest nurses’ trade union in the country with over 84 000 members. It has a dual focus on both trade union and professional development offering training to nurses.
