PEOPLE in the nursing field are being given an opportunity to expand their qualifications as the University of Fiji looks to introduce a Masters of Nursing program later this month.

According to the university, this is also the first of its kind in Fiji.

Director of postgraduate studies Litiana Kuridrani said the program was aimed at preparing students in advanced theories and practices to meet global nursing needs and trends.

"We are offering this program in three strands — master by course work, master by dissertation and master by thesis.

"We have also in-built exit points for our postgraduate students. We will be conducting shared teaching with other schools such as the School of Law and Business.

"These are the strengths and what makes this UniFiji program unique to its setting," she said.

The university has about 30 students from Fiji, Cook Islands and the Marshall Islands.

"These are our pioneer students. The volume of interest is exciting and I am anticipating a breakthrough."

The official launch of the program will be held on August 21 by the director of Nursing Services Fiji, Selina Ledua.
