Update: 4:56PM INTERN nurses were told this morning to get prepared for what the government expects of them before they enter the health service.

Speaking at the opening of a four day induction and orientation workshop for graduate nurses in Suva this morning, Health minister Rosy Akbar congratulated the young medics and commended them for choosing "such a noble career path."

The workshop series which began last year is designed to ensure all new nurses are properly trained in the operational and business systems of the government's health services.

"We are grateful to your families and friends for the support they have given to you and the privilege you have been given, and you have been entrusted with to care for fellow Fijians wherever you are posted in your medical career," Ms Akbar said.

"This induction and internship began two years ago to allow all nursing interns begin together."

"As the saying goes, if we are all on the same page we tend to do the same thing, if we sing from the same page then we will all be in a harmonious tune and that's what we want."

The health minister told the interns who graduated from nursing school at the end of 2017 to be proud of their efforts and determination to place themselves at the service of the nation.

"Wherever you are posted, you really should be ready for the practical experiences that await you," Ms Akbar said.
