New magazine layout impresses.

I'm a staff nurse at Christchurch Hospital's plastics outpatients department. I wasn't sure of my very first impression of the new format/ layout of Kai Tiaki Nursing New Zealand, as my Least favourite colours (red, orange and brown) were highlighted.

Now overall, I am very happy and impressed with the new layout. It is easier to read and easier to find the different features. I read most articles in the September issue. I prefer the personal experience articles, like "Caring for prisoners' mental health" (p16-17), "Liaising between the police and mental health" (p15), "A farewell to midwifery" (p20-21) and "Dealing with mental health stigma at work" (p22-23). These profile articles stood out for me. I always appreciate the letters.

I found your editorial writer John Halligan's comments of interest and I always tike being updated and informed about NZNO matters and union negotiations, etc.

All in all there is a very good balance of different types of features in your magazine. I enjoy receiving your magazine each month as it updates me on nursing issues and gives me a broader perspective on nursing as a whore, outside my narrow little sector of nursing. Keep up the good work! Thanks co-editors.
