NURSING students now have access to new books and learning equipment after the Indian Government gave $129,155 to the TISI Sangam Nursing school in Labasa.

Speaking at the handover in Labasa yesterday, Acting Indian High Commissioner Vikrant Rattan said the money would be used for the procurement of books and equipment for the school.

Mr Rattan said the Sangam Institute, under which the nursing school operate, was established under the TISI Sangam.

He said the institute aimed to promote excellent nursing education in Fiji by providing various courses in the discipline.

"All these trained professionals are badly needed in the health care sector of Fiji and that too at a faster rate to cater to the increasing need of the population," Mr Rattan said.
