THOSE interested in pursuing a career in health care can now opt for the one-year enrolled nursing program with the Fiji National University's Medicine, Nursing and Health Service College.

An Information Ministry statement said the program would offer basic patient care training and those graduating would be able to provide a level of nursing care in communities, health centres, hospitals and private medical practices.

"The Health Ministry is hoping to commence with this program in 2014 which will start off as a trial project with 35 candidates.

"Possible venue options are currently being negotiated," the statement said.

"Those enrolling in this program will undergo six months of theory work and six months of clinical hospital-based training.

"This new program will now allow young people a career choice and will also be a platform for a career opportunity in the region," said the statement.
