Paula Hatten, Certificate in Sport & Health Massage Graduate
EIT Tairawhiti graduate receives the Gisborne Citizens Civic Award merit certificate in acknowledgement of the many hours of time and talent given to help survivors and those with terminal illness.
Hatten trained with EIT tutor Nancy Kahalewai, a pioneer in the industry who has been internationally applauded for her work. Kahalewai had high praise for her student.
“Paula is so professional and willing to give,” she says. “It’s great that she has been recognised like this.”
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.
