Nurses respond

"Not sure how helpful a repayment bonding system is going to be to help nursing students survive their training. The 5-year concept smacks of a female dominated profession hangover, what other professions would expect their young people to delay travel and expand their knowledge professionally by 5 years?" Dawn, RN

"Why does National continue to ignore pay parity for nurses who work for Iwi and Māori providers? When National was in opposition in 2008 they said they would support equity for Māori nurses working for Iwi and Māori providers. National took over after the 2008 elections and did nothing for Māori nurses working for their iwi or Māori providers during that whole time they were in power. Why would I choose to support this party?" Keelan, Te Poari
