Nurses in New Zealand are holding rallies in 20 locations across the country, calling on political parties to tackle staff shortages. The Nurses Organisation has asked its 57,000 members to unite against unsafe staffing levels and the devaluation of their work. Midwives, health care assistants, kaimahi hauora and others working in aged care, primary health care and hospices are also involved. The rallies are designed to highlight short staffing, inadequate assessment, and underfunding of the health sector. The NZNO will launch a petition at the rallies calling on politicians to fix the nursing crisis.
