Nurses elected to boards.

Results from last month's district health board (DHB) elections have been slow to materialise, due to difficulties with the new single transferable voting (STV) system. At press time, Kai Tiaki Nursing New Zealand had heard of only one successful nurse candidate, Pauline Allan-Downs from Northland DHB. Allan-Downs is one of the faces of the successful "It's About Whanau" smokefree television campaign. She has nursed in Auckland and Wellington and is a Quit coach working in Whangarei Hospital. The co-editors invite all successful nurse candidates to send short profiles to the magazine for publication next month.
