Nursing student Tracy Black has been appointed chairperson of the New Zealand Nurses Organisation’s Māori student nurses committee, Te Rūnanga Tauira.

“Having a voice as a student is extremely important to making changes across the nursing schools and for the future of our people,” Mrs Black said. “This role is an opportunity to advocate for nursing students to make a positive change at a national level. Having a collective voice of Māori nursing students across the country gives us the mandate to address issues that nursing students face.”

Mrs Black, who is of Tūhoe, Whakatōhea and Ngāti Kahungunu descent, said she will campaign to encourage more Māori into nursing.
