Full Text: Three of four abstracts put forward by members of Te Runanga O Aotearoa NZNO for presentation at the Council of Nurses' (ICN) quadrennial congress in Durban, South Africa, at the end of June, have been accepted.

The first, to be presented by tamariki ora nurse Nadine Archibald, will took at the rote of legislation as it relates to health and its impact on funding, service delivery and the nursing workforce. It's titled Mauri tu, mauri ora--securing the rights of indigenous people to health core through legislation.

The courage to leap--surviving the journey from nursing student to new graduate will address the gap between nursing education and practice in Aotearoa/New Zealand and will be presented by newly graduated nurses Pad Tautari and Tania Hooper.

The third presentation is titled Kei a koe te kaha--you have what it takes! An indigenous view of leadership in nursing. The three presenters for this 80-minute symposium presentation comprise Te Runanga kaiwhakahaere Brenda Close, Hawke's Bay sexual health nurse Kerri Nuku and practice nurse from Canterbury Leanne Lloyd, with tautoko from Pari Tautari and Tania Hooper.

The five presenters are currently seeking funding of around $30,000 to assist with air fares, registration fees and accommodation from a variety of sources, including NZNO's Nursing Education and Research Fund, Te Puni Kokiri and the Ministry of Health.

Two other New Zealand abstracts have been accepted for the congress from June 27-July 4, which around 4500 nurses from associated countries are expected to attend. One is by Massey University senior nursing lecturer Martin Woods on the ethics of cultural safety; the other by Manukau Institute of Technology senior lecturer Helen Scott on the stratification of the nursing workforce.
