Tend Online

Meet Nicola Kirkham, one of our exceptional online Tend nurses. Nicola's caring nature and expertise make her an invaluable member of our team. Graduating with her nursing degree in Auckland, she has since dedicated her time to gaining experience in various healthcare settings, including medicine, orthopaedics, and the fast-paced Emergency Department in Rotorua.

Nicola has developed a keen interest in orthopaedics, children's health, and wound care. She is deeply committed to fostering optimal healing and wellbeing for her patients.

When not providing excellent patient care, Nicola is out exploring the breathtaking mountains or enjoying a run alongside her beloved border collie. With a passion for the outdoors and adventure sports, she’s dabbled in endurance mountain biking, adventure racing and even ultramarathon running - that’s any footrace longer than the 42km’s!

I love getting to know people through nursing, it's something that makes a tangible difference to the way people experience and benefit from healthcare.
