Registered Nurse Vikash Chand Success Story with POLHN

Tell us something about your work and yourself.

My name is Vikash Chand I am a Registered Nurse with 5 years of clinical experience. Currently, I am based at the stress management ward of Lautoka Hospital in Fiji, where I have been using my 3 years of experience in mental health nursing. In the near future, I would like to pursue a specialization in the field of mental health.


How did you find out about POLHN?

I found out about POLHN through its Facebook page. The Fiji country coordinator Fazleen provided me with immense assistance regarding upcoming courses, the enrolment process and how to win POLHN promotional items.


What courses have you studied with POLHN?

I have studied two free online courses: Mental Health Gap Action Programme and HIV-AIDS/TB. I have also studied some other topics through POLHN quite a few years back, namely: assessing suicide risk; managing burn injuries; pressure ulcers; IV fluids; diabetes; IMI injections; ECG; asthma; post operation care; wound care; surgical site infection; and constipation.


What do you like best about studying with POLHN?

Presentation and content are very neatly laid out and navigation is easy. I have been taking online courses from POLHN for a few years now and it really amazes me how POLHN has grown over the years.


What have been your reasons for taking POLHN courses?

I took these courses because they are free to take, fully online based and self-paced, plus you get a certificate after successfully completing each course.


What advice do you have for others?

I would like to advise my colleagues and people who are reading this article to JOIN POLHN TODAY!!
