Te Ōhanga Mataora Paetahi, The Bachelor of Health Science Māori (Nursing) is accredited by the Nursing Council of New Zealand and New Zealand Qualifications Authority. It prepares students for registration as a nurse with a focus on primary health care and community development, but not to the exclusion of other areas of nursing and clinical health practice.
The programme prepares students who will be competent as registered nurses, demonstrating ngākau māhaki, excellence, safety and confidence in their nursing practice, and emphasising reciprocity and the sharing of knowledge.
In order to work effectively with Māori you must possess knowledge in te reo Māori, tikanga Māori and tikanga Hauora. Tauira on the programme will learn about effective delivery of health services to Māori within Māori health paradigms and tikanga Māori.
You will be prepared to deliver quality health services to Māori and other Aotearoa New Zealand citizens, and meet the cultural and nursing requirements for both Hauora Māori providers and non-Māori health service providers.
This programme provides another choice in health and nursing training, education and development.
