Welcome to the nurses page

We’re nurses – every day we make a significant contribution to the delivery of safe, quality care.
We work right across the health system, from service design and policy to tele-health to working in homes.
Together, we improve the health of New Zealanders.

It’s time our contribution was recognised and valued. The more people understand what we do and why it’s important, the more nurses and nursing will be recognised, heard, heeded and valued.

That will make a positive difference to individuals, whānau, communities, nursing outcomes and the health service.
