What this paper is about

Edit What this paper is about Content

Tēnā koutou, nau mai, whakatau mai, a very warm welcome to you as you commence this paper that explores Advanced Practice roles.

We are excited to be on this learning journey with you all as you affirm your current practice and apply evidence and research to future development. The paper brings research discipline to the development of an advanced practice role. It has a significant research component that is needed to meet the qualification requirement for 40 points of the Master's degree at Level 9. The paper aims to provide students with the opportunity to explore a specific advanced practice role and provide an economic, clinical, and research-informed justification for the role.

Both of us (Kate and Cheryl) come from nursing roles that facilitate the implementation of advanced practice roles within workforce development, this is built on from our own journeys of advanced specialty practice.

Tomo mai ki te akoranga hauora - whakahokia ki te ao whanui. Enter to learn, go forth to serve.

No reira, piki mai, kake mai ra. Welcome again

He aha te kai ō te rangatira? He Kōrero, he kōrero, he kōrero. What is the sustenance of a leader? It is knowledge.

Kia kaha, kia maia, kia manawanui. Reach out to us for help when you need.

Nga mihi nui

Cheryl and Kate
