Nursing school aware of changes

THE SANGAM School of Nursing (SSN) is mindful of the changes occurring in the nursing profession around the country.

Sangam School of Nursing chairman Doctor Narendra Reddy said the new knowledge from the medical and nursing field was only useful if it could be incorporated in the academic program wherever appropriate.

"Any profession which does not raise the bar is not likely to move forward and nursing is no different," Dr Reddy said.

"We strongly believe that our decision to upgrade this nursing program to the Bachelor degree level program would contribute to meeting the millennium development goals, which in a common person's language means better health and welfare of the community," he said.

On financial resources, he said the Labasa-based institution had self financing and support from the Then India Sanmarga Ikya Sangam (TISI) and that the nursing school did not receive any other financial support.

"However, we wish to fully acknowledge the support from the government in terms of scholarship to those students studying at the nursing school," Dr Reddy said.

"Key to our policy is quality, affordability, accessibility and globally competitive education and we at Sangam would continue to work with this in mind," he said.
