The New Zealand Nurses Organisation (NZNO) is proud to announce its current president, Marion Guy, has been elected onto the board of directors of the International Council of Nurses (ICN). The election took place during ICN’s 24th quadrennial congress held in Durban, South Africa, this month.
“INC is a federation of national nurses’ associations representing nurses in more than 133 countries and is the voice of nurses worldwide. Marion’s experience as a nursing leader in New Zealand is excellent preparation for this global leadership role and she will do a tremendous job in the international arena,” NZNO CEO Geoff Annals said.
Marion completes four years as NZNO president in September and has represented New Zealand at meetings of the World Health Assembly of the WHO for the past three years. “We are delighted that as her tenure as our president comes to a close, Marion will be able to take up this important new nursing leadership opportunity,” Annals said.
