Maria Matthews

Maria Matthews is studying towards a Postgraduate Diploma Health Sciences in Advanced Nursing and is on the Registered Nurse Designated prescribing pathway.

“Completing this qualification will allow me to function more autonomously in my nurse specialist role which will, in turn, benefit my patients.”

“I chose the University of Auckland for postgraduate study mainly because Grafton Campus is so convenient to my place of work (Auckland City Hospital). I also received positive feedback from friends and colleagues who had studied here.

“The librarians here are so helpful with assisting students. I also had excellent tutors and gained a lot of knowledge and expertise.

“I have extended my nursing networks and have made many new friends. I have found it really helpful and enjoyable studying with my Auckland City Hospital colleagues, particularly in my area of work – cardiology.”
