  • One representative elected from each regional council;
  • Two representatives from the National Student Unit;
  • Two representatives from national colleges and sections;
  • The president and vice president.

We usually meet face-to-face at least twice a year, as well as through video or tele-conferences at least monthly.

Members provide an “environmental scan” from the group they represent – basically a report of any matters of concern or national interest to nurses, such as violence against nurses and health workers, multi-employer collective agreement updates or requests for consultation.

Brent Doncliff is the NZNO membership committee college & section representative (mental health nurses section).
