Becoming a better clinician

With three children, and a rewarding career as a clinician, Maria decided to take the next step in her training and pursue a Master’s Degree in Advanced Nursing. She is currently enrolled in the NURSPRAC 717 for RN designated Prescribers to complete her postgraduate diploma.

She chose the University of Auckland for postgraduate study mainly because the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences campus was conveniently located across the street from her place of work, Auckland City Hospital. She had also received positive feedback from friends and colleagues who had studied at the Faculty before her.

I have found it really helpful and enjoyable studying with my ACH colleagues particularly in my area of work-Cardiology”
