Members of the public must be assured that nursing care was provided by qualified people, says Nursing Services former director Rigieta Nadakuitavuki.

She made this opening remarks at the nurses’ stakeholders consultation on the scope of practice for registered midwives and development of nursing specialisation framework at Lami yesterday.

“All nurses are accountable to the people of this nation to provide safe and effective health care,” she said.

She said the prime purpose of defining the scope of nursing practice was the protection and safety of public or people they we served.

“It is important that nurses collaborate and work harmoniously together with other health care providers for the benefit of the public,” Mrs Nadakuitavuki said.

Mrs Nadakuitavuki urged nurses to function within the recogonised scope of nursing practice under the nursing decree, code of conduct, policies and ethics set by Fiji Nursing Council.

Fiji National University‘s clinical nurse educator Raymond John said: “After attending this consultation, I will develop all the nurses and make sure that all those nurses remain in the emergency to attend to the patients.”
