PARTICIPANTS from the two-week Renal Nursing Training Program have been encouraged to stay true to nursing and give their patients only the best treatment.

Vicky Ratnam, a lecturer from the School of Health Sciences Ngee Ann Polytechnic and two of her colleagues have been teaching 14 participants from local health centres on basic renal nursing training.

"You have to give your patients quality treatment," Ms Ratnam said at the certificate presentation ceremony on Friday.

"Always be true to nursing, regardless of where you are.

"Your patients deserve only the best from you and we hope that through this training, you will go a step further in this passion that you have in caring for people."

Laisenia Vunivi, a participant from the Lautoka Hospital, said they were blessed to have been a part of such world-class training.

"This is a milestone in renal care in Fiji.

"We have soaked in every bit of information from this training and we are looking forward to achieving the best renal nursing and dialysis care at our different hospitals and health centres," he said.

The workshop was held at the Kidney Foundation of Fiji in Suva.
