Supporting our amazing community of recently retired nurses

You have an amazing community of recently retired nurses that could help in many ways. They were often driven out by heavy audit requirements, and shift work. Are more likely to be in smaller towns and rural settings based on cost of living, and will still have a very wide array of skills and experience to contribute.

Do you have a plan to support this group, particularly in light of their unique circumstances, superannuation funding streams and locations around the country?

Why the contribution is important

We have an opportunity to support our nursing community while also thinking differently about how we deliver into our smaller towns, and rural locations. It aligns with our system shifts while acknowledging the many decades of service our nurses have delivered during their health career.

It requires different thinking, recognising flexible working arrangements and lessening impacts on superannuation income streams.

    It's true. Our local nurse has tried to retire but we won't let her - she knows too much about us: our families, our tamariki, our communities, how we think.
