Nursing students celebrate end of studies

A group of very happy nursing students celebrated the end of their study journey with a ceremony at NorthTec’s Te Puna o Te Mātauranga marae.

After three years of hard work to complete the Bachelor of Nursing, the 46 students were both relieved and delighted to reach this milestone moment.

Each student, including the three males on the programme, acknowledged the huge support received from their families, their NorthTec tutors and their classmates, which helped them achieve their success.

Many will go straight into work in the Tai Tokerau healthcare workforce, having completed clinical placements in a variety of settings within the region.

All will be eligible to graduate formally at the annual NorthTec graduation ceremony in March. NorthTec has two nursing intakes each year, and holds a marae-based whakawatea to farewell each group at the end of their studies.

Jane Anderson, Programme Leader for nursing, said: “The students have worked extremely hard and have made many personal sacrifices to ensure they graduated successfully. My colleagues and I in the nursing department are very happy to see them go off to boost the nursing workforce and provide a service to the community.”
