Ingrid Foss, National Certificate in Mental Health and Addiction Support
Studying for her nursing degree was an “amazing journey” and one in a series for Ingrid Foss, a Hastings mother-of-five who graduated from EIT in March 2014. Launching into tertiary education, Ingrid had just enrolled for EIT’s National Certificate in Mental Health when she found she was expecting her youngest child, now aged six. With classmates tracking the progress of her pregnancy and the arrival of baby Chloe, she persevered to gain her qualification – and with flying colours.
My research is related to issues identified currently in nursing clinical practice and has sought to add to the body of knowledge, guide practice and provide a better understanding of those issues. Two renal papers on the role and effectiveness of pre-dialysis nurses have contributed to the clarification of the role and an understanding of what these nurses believed to be effective care.
