University of Fiji partners with Pacific Open Learning Health Net to improve patient care

In a bid to improve patient care and promote Universal Health Coverage in the region, the University of Fiji has teamed up with Pacific Open Learning Health Net. The partnership will provide registered nurses with an opportunity to pursue a Bachelor of Nursing (Bridging) and Master of Nursing by thesis and Bachelor of Public Health to the public health workers from Semester 1, 2018.

This will allow Pacific nurses to upgrade their skills, knowledge, and education without moving away from their homes. The Saweni‑based Lautoka campus will remotely facilitate the accredited programmes. University of Fiji Vice Chancellor, Professor Prem Misir says the partnership will advance nursing standards and improve patient care in the region as well as provide nurses and public health workers diverse opportunities to equip their knowledge to make informed health related decisions.
