Extra nursing programme

WITT has announced a second intake on its Bachelor of Nursing programme.

The Bachelor of Nursing equips students with skills to work with clients in a healthcare setting.

WITT’s interim head of nursing Maureen Kelly, who took up her position at the start of May, said the programme had a proven track record of providing avenues to work.

“I saw a report from one Polytechnic this week which showed of 91 nursing students, 89 had found work one had decided to go on OE and the other had elected not to look for a position,” she said.

WITT’s new nursing head was the Director of the School of Nursing at Waiariki (now part of Toi Ohomai) for five years to 2009 and has spent most of her time since then as Education and Standards Manager with the Nursing Council of New Zealand.              

WITT has a strong record in nursing – WITT News reported late last year every third year nursing student who studied at WITT in 2017 passed the State Final Examination, enabling them to be registered as nurses.

The new intake of student nurses at WITT will commence their three year, full time Level 7 programme on July 22.
