Partnership work in mentorship
08 November 2018
SouthSeas Healthcare and Manukau Institute of Technology have become the linchpin of mentorship delivery for third year nursing students.
Aiming to provide a greater focus on practice-based learning and help integrate theory and practice, SouthSeas Healthcare have taken on two third year nursing students for the year.
Rachel Tutone and Talei Pritchard will morph into practical work as well as getting the opportunity to be out and about in the community, including schools, observing nursing work.
The partnership work has been facilitated so Pacific students in MIT can have the opportunity to work in a Pacific dominant environment, linking their classroom theory to practice, and to be part of a service-based practice.
The partnership is accountable for ensuring mentorship is provided.
Both students have now been with SouthSeas Healthcare for 6 weeks.
Within this six week period, both have been delivering excellent health promotion to Ferguson Intermediate in Otara under the supervision of SouthSeas Mana Kidz Team Leader Irene Harrison.
The partnership works in providing nursing students practical experience, ensuring that student nurses are placed with appropriately qualified mentors in learning environments during the practical component of their course.
SouthSeas Healthcare is located in the heart of Otara opposite MIT’s Nursing School, which helps to facilitate the crucial partnership in guiding and assessing students, assuring that Pacific students are fit for practice at the point of registration.
