THE TISI Sangam Nursing School in Labasa is now a fully registered institution under the Fiji Higher Education Commission (FHEC).

The recognition was made at the Fiji Nursing Association yesterday where representatives received the registration certificate from the commission.

TISI Sangam national president Sadasivan Naicker said it took them nearly four years to comply with the requirements, adding that the certificate would help students and the institution to apply for grants.

Commission director, Salote Rabuka, said the registration process involved a total of 52 outcomes, most of which were met by the school.

"In 2010, they were given provisional registration and told to address these particular issues," she said.

She said the process benefited the institution, particularly in terms of professional growth, adding that it would help the institution gain international recognition.
