Bianca Saathof, Bachelor of Nursing Student
I took advantage of EIT's "half a degree for free" which has also meant I can study while living at home. My study is broadening my horizons and has already stimulated much personal growth, in conjunction with academic development.
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
