Interested in becoming a CENNZ-NZNO National Committee Member?

If you are interested in an enjoyable, challenging role representing your region, promoting emergency nursing nationally and meeting like-minded emergency nurses, then this is the role for you.  You do require a commitment and interest in the development of emergency nursing.

By becoming a committee member for CENNZ you will be involved in strategic planning, governmental dialogue, collaboration with national agencies, development of education for emergency nurses and networking with other emergency nurses nationally and internationally.

The term of office is for 2 years (maximum of 4 years) and requires a moderate time commitment.  There are four face-to-face meetings per year (which are for 2 days each) and a monthly half hour teleconference.  Each committee member writes a short journal report four times per year. The role also involves other committee responsibilities between meetings as well as disseminating information back to your region.

Committee members are required to have the ability to write and critique their own as well as others’ documents. It is essential that they are competent computer users (able to use Microsoft Word and preferably Excel), have internet access, the ability to access remotely stored CENNZ documents, as well as being able to have regular access to email.
