It is no secret that Maori health rates high in terms of need, and that one part in addressing this effectively is increasing and developing our Maori health workforce. The July edition has followed the story of Maori nurses in their journeys within health, and in their particular fields of clinical practice and service development.
Many of our nurses, who began their careers as community health care workers or enrolled nurses, provided integral front line nursing within their communities.
