Message from the co-editors

We believe it is vital to inform, support and connect you as you undertake your duty of care in extreme circumstances. Due to the COVID-19 lockdown we are unable to print the April edition of Kai Tiaki Nursing New Zealand, so we have published it online instead.

Given the current crisis, we've also decided to make it available to everyone.

We hope to be printing again soon, while also planning for a more interactive online journal in time. We wish you and your whānau the strength to get through this crisis. He waka eke noa – we are all in this together.

From the co-editors

Kai Tiaki Nursing New Zealand is NZNO's monthly journal, posted directly to more than  46,000 NZNO members. Kai Tiaki covers professional and industrial issues facing nurses and other health workers around the country, records major NZNO initiatives, profiles different practice areas and informs members of current health policy issues.

Kai Tiaki provides a forum for nurses to publish practice, education and research articles and to debate important professional and policy matters. Kai Tiaki is the Māori term for carer or guardian and has been incorporated in the title of the magazine since it was first published in 1908.

Kai Tiaki Nursing Research

NZNO launched a second journal, Kai Tiaki Nursing Research, in 2010. This is an annual journal showcasing New Zealand nursing research.

It publishes original, full-length research manuscripts from New Zealand-based nurse researchers (or other researchers where the research can be shown to have particular relevance to nursing in New Zealand).

This is a subscription only journal.
