Māori and Pacific community health nurse
Supporting your people
He aha te mahi a te tapuhi hapori Māori, hapori Pasifika? Māori and Pacific community health nurses promote wellbeing in their communities by delivering grassroots-level health services to Māori and Pacific people.
You’ll find Māori and Pacific community health nurses working in homes, kura and preschools, churches, marae, community groups, and in health and social services in the hapori. As a Māori and Pacific community health nurse, you will educate, connect, and champion your community. You might help kura and kōhanga set up health programmes, or provide parents with information. You might run vaccine drives, or help whānau understand how to improve the health of their homes. You might help with housing issues, or child protection, or infectious diseases. Or you might work with primary healthcare organisations like Care Plus or Whānau Āwhina Plunket. This is practical on-the-ground nursing that makes a real difference for the health of Māori and Pacific people.
It’s about building therapeutic relationships.
