I commenced my nursing career in Christchurch, and moved to Nelson where I lived and worked for 18 years. After 12 years of living and working in Otago, I moved to Hawke’s Bay, where I now live and work.
As well as working in several geographical locations, I have had a number of different roles in health and education as a nurses leader, manager, teacher and researcher.
My research has resulted in publications which are available to health professionals and the public. For example, in advanced nursing practice roles, especially Nurse Practitioner roles, and socio-political influences in relation to the implementation of these roles in the New Zealand environment. I have also published on nurse competence/legislation.
