On Monday 150 first year nursing students were welcomed at Waikato Hospital and the Nursing and Midwifery Professional Development Unit took the opportunity to profile patient safety week - all the students wore a "hello my name is.." sticker.

The full group of more than 150 student nurses - all wearing “Hello my name is..." stickers. These 150 students will be starting their clinical placements with us over the next two years. This whakatau, which was facilitated by John Kopa from Te Puna Oranga, acknowledged our role as partners in the nursing student journey and welcomed them as part of the DHB team during their placements with us.
