Welcome to the 25th College of Emergency Nurses New Zealand Conference proudly hosted in Auckland.
Balance - Caring for others, caring for ourselves
The theme of balance was chosen to reflect the many challenges emergency nurses face in their professional and personal lives. We work in a stressful demanding environment, endeavouring to promote positive health care outcomes but also needing to balance this with caring for ourselves.
Equally every working day we try to balance the needs of many patients, juggling our time to ensure we provide the best care. For those nurses with a more managerial role there is a constant challenge to balance resources, finances and staffing requirements.
There are numerous other interpretations of the concept of balance and we look forward to hearing your versions on this theme and trust you will take this opportunity to enjoy both the conference and the diversity that Auckland City has to offer.
