Sangam develops program for nursing students

Sunday, August 14, 2016

Update: 12:11PM THE Then India Sanmarga Ikya (TISI) Sangam Fiji's School of Nursing celebrated a milestone over the weekend when it became the first institution in the country to develop and deliver a Bachelor in Nursing Bridging Program.

The Health Ministry's Director of Nursing Services, Selina Waqa Ledua said Fiji was fortunate that TISI Sangam Fiji responded to a need for such a program.

"There had been a Bachelor in Nursing Program for registered nurses franchised from James Cook University, Australia from 1998 to 2009," she said while speaking at the launch of the program in Lautoka.

"After 2010, with the merge of the Fiji National University the program was discontinued and today we are fortunate that TISI Sangam Fiji has responded positively to the need for the industry by developing a bridging program."
