Do you know a Māori nurse that has made a significant contirbution to Māori health? Nominations are open now until the 30th June. Follow the forms link below or check out the news article on the NZNO website.

Te Akenehi Hei Memorial Award for significant contribution to Māori Health is the highest honour that can be awarded by Te Rūnanga o Aotearoa, New Zealand Nurses Organisation (Te Rūnanga). It is awarded every two years at the NZNO Annual General Meeting and Conference.

The Award was commissioned by Te Rūnanga in 2001 and is an NZNO award, under the kaitiaki of Te Rūnanga. This taonga was fashioned by two artists from Waiheke island, Paora Rangiuaia (Ngāti  Porou) and James Webster (Te Waka o Tainui) from three varieties of stone: pounamu, māpere (white marble) and uriuri (dark basalt) and is mounted on pōhutakawa timber.
