Emma Hickson - Vice-ChairEmma Hickson - Committee Member

I live in Wellington and work as the Director of Nursing for Primary and Community for Capital and Coast DHB. I have the pleasure of working with colleagues in PHOs, Primary, Community, Aged Residential Care, Corrections, Regional Public Health and many NGO services across the whole of the health sector.

Originally a District Nurse, I have enjoyed being involved with the College for several years. As my professional roles have changed, I have found the College to be an invaluable environment to meet and learn from others.

I am very excited that with the on-going developments in health service delivery, Primary Health Care Nurses are uniquely positioned to develop their practice and enable improved access to healthcare for their population.

Currently I am on the LOGIC committee and Vice Chair of the executive committee.

Wendy King - SecretaryWendy King - Secretary

My initial nursing education was at Taumarunui Hospital, with post-graduate nursing and non-nursing study following. Most of my work has been with children and families; ranging from neonatal retrievals to the school MENZB immunisation programme.

Work experience includes orientating, precepting, staff education, shift coordination, peer reviewer, scholarship panel member, clinical nurse leader and manager; including time working in Australia.

When PDRP was implemented at Waikato DHB I was the NZNO representative on the Implementation Subcommittee; currently I am an assessor. Alongside this, as part of my 11 years as a Nursing Officer in the Territorials I had a stint in Vanuatu with the New Zealand Defence Forces.

Bronwyn Boele van Hensbroek-Miller - Committee MemberBronwyn Boele van Hensbroek-Miller - Committee Member

In 1984 I registered as a RN with NZNC and in 1995 as a Registered Midwife with the Midwifery Council of NZ. I gained my Masters of Nursing in 2010 and in April 2017 registered as a Nurse Practitioner with the NZNC.

My work experience has spanned 33 years and has taken me from New Zealand to Australia and the UK with voluntary work in Indonesia and Vanuatu. The variety of my work experience has challenged my nursing practice, my philosophy of nursing and developed my world view of what it is to nurse. The diversity of my experience has overall given me a passion for caring for our most vulnerable with an enthusiasm for health promotion and education.

In August of 2015 I was fortunate enough to be employed at Te Aro Health Centre, a nurse led clinic that provides health care to the city's most vulnerable and marginalised people. I am fortunate to now be employed as a nurse practitioner at Te Aro.

Lee-Anne Tait - Committee MemberLee Ann Tait - Committee Member

My name is Lee-Anne and I work at Eketahuna health centre in the Tararua district, which was the first nurse-led health centre in the country.

I work alongside two others nurses and we are overseen by a local executive committee and Mid Central District Health Board. I have worked here for 5 years and prior to this I was in public health for 7 years. Prior to this I worked in the Primary Health sector and hospitals, both in New Zealand and the UK.

I have a degree in Health Studies, and am halfway through my Masters; predominantly my interests seem to be related to holistic wellness models of health.
