A group of nurses have become the first to attain a Masters Degree in Nursing locally.

The 31 who graduated from the University of Fiji yesterday included eight from Labasa and the remainder from Suva and Lautoka in front of an audience of over 1000 guests at the Saweni campus outside Lautoka.

A spokesperson for the group, Sister Meri Rabuka, who is also attached with the Sangam College of Nursing in Labasa, said they were privileged with being the first to attain masters degrees.

“We went through so many difficulties and problems while studying for our degree so right now we are pretty emotional about it,” she said.

Sister Rabuka said they were overwhelmed with the content of the course they did as it also included budgeting, knowledge on skills, economics, reforms and indigenous studies.

The nurses paid tribute to the Dean of the School of Nursing, Litiana Kuridrani, who had imparted a lot of knowledge.

They also thanked the TISI Sangam for all the help in getting the nurses from Labasa to attend the university and providing assistance with other expenses they had encountered.
