Ninety per cent of Fiji nurses around the country have registered after they were required by law to register in order to practice.
Director Nursing Services Silina Waqa told FijiLive the period of registration for all nurses have ended last month but the Fiji Nursing Council has agreed to give them one more month to register.
“We have a very few people left to register and we are giving these people a grace period to get themselves registered or otherwise they would not be able to practice but if they do it would be considered as illegal,” said Waqa.
“If they do not register before this month end then they will face the consequences,” she said.
She said registration of nurses is a requirement of the law throughout the world and nurses have to meet all requirements prescribed by the Fiji Nursing Council to secure eligibility to register
She also said some of the benefits they will be looking at during this process is the strengthening of professional and quality standards, strengthening the recognition of nursing as a profession, improvement in nursing practice as nurses strive to meet registration requirements and ultimately improved patient safety and safety of the practice.
