EIT Tairawhiti (Gisborne) gives those of us with ties to the region the opportunity to improve our lifestyle without moving cities. The EIT staff are amazing - just take a leap of faith and make the application!
During the past five years I have established a strong national and international presence in terms of research related to nursing regulation, and in particular the exploration of relationships between legislation, policy, regulation and continuing competence of health professionals. My Doctoral research explored the relationships between legislation, policy and the continuing competence requirements for nurses in New Zealand, and proposed an internationally agreed best practice model for the assessment of continuing competence
