Time is running out very fast. The General Nursing Council of Zambia (GNCZ) renewal of the 2020 Nurses and Midwives Practicing Licence exercise that started on 1st August 2019 comes to an end on 31st December 2019. Therefore, congratulations to all nurses and midwives that have already renewed their 2020 practicing licences, and consequently avoided becoming victims of a last minute panic rush that causes congestion at GNCZ offices.
To those that have not yet renewed their practicing licences you are advised to do so as a matter of urgency in order to avoid paying penalty fees since there will be no amnesty.
You can pay your licence fees through NATSAVE or ZANACO Bill Muster.
Those who pay their licence fees through ZANACO Bill Muster can sign-in to the GNCZ portal (portal.gncz.org.zm) and receive their licence Online in the comfort of their home or work place. However, this Online Service which will also soon start with NATSAVE and MTN, is only applicable to those nurses and midwives who have a clean record at GNCZ.
Those with a record of having defaulted to renew any of the past years licences are encouraged to visit the Kitwe or Lusaka GNCZ office in person.
For Step-By-Step guidance on how to access, process and receive your renewed 2020 practicing licence Online, please download and/or read the GNCZ Online Services User Manual from the link shown on our immediate past posting on this same GNCZ official facebook page.
