Ko te manu e kai ana i te miro, nōna te ngahere.
Engari, ko te manu e kai ana i te mātauranga, nōna te ao.

The one who partakes of the flora and fauna, that will be their domain. The one who engages in education, opportunities are boundless.

Conference Themes

The focus of this conference is purposeful partnerships for practice. Effective and purposeful partnerships and collaborative approaches provide the opportunity to contribute different expertise to nursing workforce development. This conference offers the space to explore successful and innovative approaches to nursing education from both national and international colleagues. Our hope is that we engage in debate and discussion that will ensure the focus of nursing education remains on improving the health of the populations’ nurses serve. Just like the winds of Wellington are always in motion, so is nursing and nursing education. The conference will focus on three streams:
