With Aotearoa tied up in the fight against Delta, and Alert Levels likely to remain in place for a few weeks yet, we’ve had to make the tough call to postpone the National School & Youth Nurses
It will now take place 24 – 25 January 2022 and we look forward to welcoming you at The Atrium, Wintec, in Hamilton.
Thanks for your patience while we worked through this decision. It didn’t come lightly. Whilst tempting to push forward with the October event, to go ahead would have, at best, compromised a brilliant programme.
We were looking forward to welcoming guests and speakers from across the country but, given the current environment, it’s uncertain when travel across regions will resume.
It’s important to us that this conference is an opportunity to gather and collaborate. While we could have shared sessions online, it would lack the sense of collegiality that we wanted to foster by having us all physically present ‘at the table’. And past delegates have told us that networking is an important part of the experience too. We know you were looking forward to coming together. So were we. But we promise to make January date an event worth waiting for!
Please rest assured, as a valued delegate, you don't need to do anything, your registration has automatically been transferred across to the new dates. We are awaiting confirmation from our speakers but will notify you all once the January programme is updated & confirmed.
In the meantime, please look after yourselves and the youth within your reach. This is a challenging time, which is exaggerating the highs and lows of daily life. Health and wellbeing is at the heart of what we all do, so we hope you’re able to draw on those skills yourself in the coming weeks as New Zealand gets on top of this virus.
