    Mrs Rusieli Taukei
    Director of Nursing & Health System Standards/Registrar
  • Regulatory Body
    Nurses, Midwives and Nurse Practitioners are registrable under the Nurses, Midwives and Nurse Practitioners Act administered by the Director of Nursing Services as Registrar of the Nurses, Midwives and Nurse Practitioners Board. A Register is kept by the Board and registration is valid for life unless revoked by cause. The principal Act (Nurses, Midwives Act) was amended in 1999 to incorporate the Nurse Practitioners, hence now known as NMNP Act administered by NMNP Board.

    Nursing, Midwifery and Advanced Nursing Practice in Fiji are legislated to ensure public safety. Fiji has laws that state what a nurse, midwife or nurse practitioners can practice. In Fiji the majority of nurses are civil servants, therefore are bound by the appraisal system, which is reported and documented on annual performance. Any adverse performance is reported through the system forthwith, so there is always someone supervising someone. Nurses, Midwives and Nurse Practitioners are therefore bound by rules under Public Service Commission and also within the legal framework of the Nurses, Midwives and Nurse Practitioners Board.

    In Fiji a Code of Ethics and Conduct is available to all nurses. The Nurses, Midwives and Nurse Practitioners Board formulates policies related to nursing practice and education which are continually reviewed.

  • Health System
    Fiji provides health care at all levels from Primary Preventative to Secondary and Tertiary. The Government is the main provider of health care, which is almost free to the general public.

    Nurses function at all levels of health services, including the most peripheral in Nursing Stations (1 person station), health centre’s where they work as a team with doctors or nurse practitioners, sub divisional hospitals and base hospitals in high technology. They also work in specialized areas as Mental Health, TB/Leprosy/Rehabilitation.
