Nursing, midwifery assns concerned about Health Workforce NZ

Nursing and midwifery associations, seriously concerned about the performance of Health Workforce New Zealand (HWNZ), have identified areas in which improvement is required to restore health workforce confidence in HWNZ’s ability to meet its core functions. The signatories to an open letter - the New Zealand Nurses Organisation, the New Zealand College of Midwives and the College of Nurses Aotearoa [NZ] – believe that greater rigour and engagement by HWNZ is required to ensure health workforce planning meets future health service need.

The open letter to Health Workforce NZ can be found here: http://www.nzno.org.nz/home/hot_topics/health_workforce_new_zealand_hwnz
