Nursing Council to hold forum.
This year, the format has been changed to allow plenty of time to debate and discuss key regulatory issues, including the challenge of maintaining safe practice in an increasingly diverse environment, changes to the regulatory and professional environment with the new Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act, the competency assurance framework and the interface between education and clinical practice. Guest speaker will be nurse and researcher Bridget Robson from Te Ropti Rangahau Hauora a Eru Pomare, at the Wellington School of Medicine and Health Sciences.
At the closure of the forum's first day, October 16, Minister of Health Annette King will officially open the Council's new premises in Mid City Towers, Willis St. She will also open the forum earlier that day.
Around 160 nurses are expected to attend the two-day forum.
