BEING humble while carrying out their duties was the message by Fiji National University pro-vice-chancellor Professor James Pounder to College of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences students who graduated yesterday.
Speaking to the 434 graduates, Prof Pounder told the students it was important for them to uphold their ethics at all times and serve with pride.
“You all will be dealing with patients; I am confident that your respective programs have prepared you well to take care of the medical side,” he said.
Prof Pounder said FNU was committed to providing training and education to create a highly-skilled labour force and underpin the country’s rapid economic and social development.
“We at FNU are focused on developing a culture of excellence that resonates throughout our academic history. We believe in empowerment and creating graduate leaders who are creative, intellectually versatile with a can-do attitude contributing towards positive development in communities as well as enhancing economic growth.”
He said this month, FNU hosted graduation ceremonies with a total number of 1854 students with certificates, diplomas and degrees.
Prof Pounder said this included 11 Executive Masters in Business Administration, 40 Masters, 113 Postgraduate Diplomas and 42 Post Graduate Certificates being awarded.
