Liz MacKenzie, Bachelor of Nursing Graduate

I want to make a difference in people's lives, help them to empower themselves to as independently as possible manage their health.  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!

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.
