YOUR gentle smile and healing touch combined with loving care will bring patients a renewed hope for living.

TISI Sangam board chairman Amraiya Naidu made the comment during his remarks at the opening of the TISI Sangam College of Nursing and Health Care Education in Suva yesterday.

The Sangam College of Nursing is a private nursing education institution that is operated by the TISI Sangam, a non-profit, socio-cultural and religious organisation.

The courses that are offered at the college are franchised and accredited by the Government of Fiji through the Fiji Nursing Council.

Located at Belo St in Samabula, the college — the third in Fiji for TISI Sangam — was officially opened by Fiji Higher Education Commission director Salote Rabuka.

The occasion also marked the launch of a Bachelor in Nursing Bridging Program.

Mrs Rabuka said the achievements reflected the potential in the leadership, management and staff of the college to be responsive to the requirements of a changing higher education environment.

"It reflects the college's capacity to respond adequately to the needs of its clients and Fiji as a whole as well as the college's obligation to maintain quality in its programs," she said.

She said the occasion was a milestone achievement for which credit must go to those whose vision and tireless efforts had brought Sangam education and training in Fiji to what it was today.

"It is my wish that this new centre will flourish as an institution of learning that will reward all who will pass through it."

Meanwhile, Mr Naidu said the first cohort of 67 students with bachelor of nursing degree graduated in December 2015.
