Chairman rejects claims

THE academic chairman of the TISI Sangam College of Nursing, Amraiya Naidu, has rejected claims by a few students at the college that they were deliberately failed by the institution to cater for government nursing intakes.

Mr Naidu said such claims were mischievous and untrue.

"All the 64 students at the college had passed their college examinations at the institution and graduated last year," he said.

"However, five of them have failed the government's nursing registration examination and will be re-siting their papers this year.

"The Fiji Nursing Council takes full charge of the examinations and assesses the students as the institution has nothing to do with examinations, therefore such claims are baseless."

Mr Naidu said if students claimed they had any form of influence on the national nursing registration exams then they were wrong because it was the responsibility of the Fiji Nursing Council.
