THE Health Ministry has this year absorbed 46 nurses who graduated from the Labasa Sangam College of Nursing into the civil service.

Nursing director Silina Waqa-Ledua yesterday said the nurses graduated from the college in December last year.

"We have a memorandum of agreement that covers the role of the ministry and the college as one of the nursing providers," she said.

"The college along with the Fiji National University provides us with human resources and this is the relationship we have established for about a decade now."

Commenting on the two nursing institutions,

Mrs Waqa-Ledua said the curriculum offered in both colleges were basically the same.

"What's delivered here at the Labasa Sangam College of Nursing is also delivered to a reasonably manageable cohort of nursing students in Tamavua," she said.

"There is not much of a difference in the two institutions.

"There is only one nursing council that oversees both the curriculums in the colleges and we anticipate that what is produced here is also produced in Tamavua."

National TISI Fiji president Sadasivan Naicker said they had developed a good relationship with the ministry in terms of employing their graduates.
