Shal Addis, Bachelor of Recreation & Sport
Dropping out of school at 15, Shal Addis didn’t dream he would be graduating with a degree a little over six years later.
The 21-year-old from Taradale has recently graduated with EIT's Bachelor of Recreation and Sport. Shal starts study this year for his Master’s degree while continuing to work for the Hawke’s Bay Rugby Union as strength and conditioning trainer for the Hawke’s Bay Academy’s up-and-coming young players.
Since 2008 I have taught in the Master of Nursing programme on the basis of my expertise in qualitative research methods and my experience supervising graduate students. Since then my research has focused on nursing practice and the assessment of health care and related programmes. This has resulted in a number of publications relevant to New Zealand and international nursing. I also lead research teams across health and social sciences.
