Welcome to the Mobile Health Rural Nurses Meeting for 2019. The nurses' meeting is always extremely popular, so we are again developing an informative, inspirational and enjoyable meeting programme specifically for rural nurses. The meeting will be held in Wellington from the 23rd - 25th of May 2019. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
