Vinisha achieved certificate in Tuberculosis course - POLHN

Happy to receive certificate in Tuberculosis

Tell us something about your work and yourself.

I am currently a registered nurse at Tamavua Twomey Hospital in the TB ward. This is my 5th year in service . I started my nursing education with Fiji National University (FNU) where I did my Diploma in Nursing, followed by a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing (post registration) from Sangam Institute of Technology.  I am currently studying for a Post Graduate Diploma in Leadership and Management in Nursing from FNU.

How did you find out about POLHN?

I was told about POLHN by my team leader who always encourages all the nurses in my ward to continue broadening our knowledge through free online health short courses available on POLHN.

What do you study with POLHN?

I did a course on Tuberculosis and will be continuing my field of study in Tuberculosis care and management as this is my interest.

What do you like best about studying with POLHN?

POLHN is a flexible way of learning as it takes into consideration the working people. We can study when we have time, the IT support staffs are very accommodating, and the knowledge gained through POLHN short courses has enhanced my nursing skills as well as my critical thinking abilities.

What advice do you have for others?

Education is the most powerful weapon that can be used to change the world so keep on expanding your knowledge as this will, in turn, benefit your patients since they will receive quality nursing care.
