Kia ora and welcome to School of Nursing’s online journal. This issue features some of our third-year students’ work using the guiding principles: care, context and compassion change lives.
This is a space where Nursing students publicise their work to share with peers. In their third and final year at the School of Nursing, students focus on clinical and evidence-based practical and literal work.
By doing so, students not only gain the confidence to engage in research literature, but have the opportunity to build relationships and network with the healthcare community, clients, organisations and the wider society.
This is also a space for knowledge transfer between like-minded individuals, peer reviews and for prospective employers to view student work.
As our students transition into their professional careers, their journals will act as a legacy for others to follow. To all our third-year students - we wish you the very best for the future!
