Becoming a 'good' nurse: Uncovering the essence of a nursing ethic

Martin Woods has been involved in nursing education for more than forty years, with his teaching and research focused on nursing ethics, law, and nursing philosophy. In this lecture Dr Woods reflects on his career as a nurse and esteemed educator to contemplate the essence of 'good' nursing.

This lecture series is named after Grace Neill (1846-1926), a pioneer in the field of nursing and midwifery. Her advocacy for nursing and midwifery led to establishment of the New Zealand Nurse Registration Act, and the Midwives Act. The Nurses Registration Act was the world's first national registration act for nurses.

The lecture is followed by light refreshments and networking opportunities.

Room 801 is in the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Health Practice, Clinical Services Block, Level 8, Wellington Hospital.

As this is a catered event, please register by 5 May.
