Poor policy shuts out Maori nurses

The New Zealand Nurses Organisation has attacked an over-reliance on internationally qualified nurses and called for better use of Maori and Pacific nursing graduates.

In a new discussion document, it says poor workforce planning and inconsistent policy undermines the sustainability of the nursing workforce.

Chief executive Memo Musa says DHBs aren’t supporting New Zealand nurses into senior positions, instead it's filling jobs with imports through the misuse of the accredited employer gateway.

The organisation wants to see full employment of graduates, better pay at entry level nursing roles such as working in aged care, community care, primary care, including Iwi and Maori care sectors and better mentoring and professional development to help retain senior nurses.

He says Maori and Pacific graduate nurses are not being recruited into areas like community care and primary care, including mental health and this means there can be a cultural mismatch in these areas of nursing.

OPINION - Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: TVNZ Journalist Jehan Casinader, has written a remarkably shallow evaluation of the corrosive Orange Tamariki child uplift programme and has bewilderingly concluded the problem is Māori, not the policy.
