Wendy Blair is a New Zealand Trained Registered Nurse, I completed my PhD in 2021 through the University of Newcastle, Australia. I am a closet practice developer and as such firmly believe in the need for person centred approaches to nursing care, management and education. I believe it is critical to understand the context practice occurs within and the impact of that on safety for patients and staff. I have worked in a variety of different nursing contexts including medical/surgical, critical care, clinical and tertiary education, and as a Professional Nursing Advisor. My current role is Competency Advisor for the New Zealand Nurses Organisation (NZNO).
