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.
