We guess desperate times calls for desperate measures. And although the recent report on the FijiLive website regarding the new FSN admission criteria to be implemented by Fiji's Ministry of Health may seem like a stupid idea (considering the reasons they explained), we thought the criteria is better suited for the current military leadership.
But what is baffling enough is this idea that "looking at academic results plus looking at other factors like deportment, psychology and their general suitability to the profession” is going to CURB THE FLOW OF NURSES TO LUCRATIVE JOBS OVERSEAS. It just won't work because the human instinct to survive and prosper by any means possible (and we are only talking here of LEGAL means) will always enable them to reach for the STARS, whenever it is possible for them, so they can be better off from whence they started.
It's all well and good for humans to establish criterias etc in any form and for the sole purpose of making sure that we abide by them. And when we do, the results create a PLEASANT, HARMONIOUS AND WONDERFUL environment where we coexist respectfully. However, when someone or a group of people decide to overstep this simple human goodness of rules, regulations and agreements, that's when we end up with peope like Voreqe and his military leadership squad and coup supporters.
It's all well and good for the FMH and FSN to come up with an idea like this. However, what if this criteria is implemented on the current crop of military leadership who are currently HOLDING OUR COUNTRY AND ITS FUTURE AT GUNPOINT! Maybe then we will have some semblance of having a future free of coup-monsters and power-mongers!
