Nayda Heays, Bachelor of Nursing
Nursing practice experience in Hawke’s Bay hospitals has shaped final-year degree student Nayda Heays’ ambition to work in an acute nursing setting like intensive care.
When she launched into studies at EIT in her late thirties, Nayda says she wanted to save the world.
My research and teaching interests lie in the area of gender, race, sexuality and critical theory. My PhD thesis, which was completed in 2005, used critical discourse analysis to deconstruct some of the myths and stereotypes surrounding men, masculinity and caring. My subsequent research has focused on issues pertaining to nursing education and workforce development.
