March 2017

The March issue focuses on Gastroenterology and Stomal therapy nursing. It will include profiles of several nurses working in these specialities and an update on training for nurse endoscopists in light of the roll out of the national bowel screening programme.  Another practice article looks at the economic benefits of vaccinations. The professional development article examines irritable bowel syndrome. We continue our coverage of how nurses are dealing with the aftermath of the earthquake in Kaikōura, and we run profiles of those nurses standing for election to vacancies on the NZNO board of directors.
