Chris Ball, Master of Nursing Student

"The EIT papers I studied at this level were stimulating, well-organised and taught by lecturers who knew what they were talking about.  When it came to writing my thesis I had support that was above and beyond the call of duty.  I aspire to creating the best learning environment I can for nursing students in Gisborne."
