The Nurses’ Organisation and government drug buying agency Pharmac have teamed up to create new awards to help Māori nurses advance in the profession.

Tāpuhi Kaitiaki Awards will help nurses undertake further study to become nurse prescribers and nurse practitioners.

Atene Andrews from Pharmac says the awards arose from a survey which aimed to identify what could be holding Māori nurses back.

"Funding and they've still got to run their won homes and then they have to go to work and then the requirement to study becomes a barrier that if they had an award specifically to get Māori nurses through to that nurse practitioner nurse prescribing category, that would be a big plus," he says.

A second Matauranga Māori Award has been created for nurses looking for further study or research time to develop innovative ways to assist whānau, hapu and iwi to access and understand their medicines, and also for enrolled nurses to study toward registered nurse status.
