Nicola Skinner

Tend Kingsland Medical Centre

Meet Nicola Skinner, she studied nursing at AUT and is a strong advocate for children's health. As a mother to two beautiful daughters, Nicola understands the importance of providing compassionate and informed care to young patients and their families.

Nicola's expertise lies in the areas of children's health and diabetes management. Her passion for these fields drives her commitment to staying up-to-date with the latest advancements and best practices.

When she's not working with the Tend team, Nicola applies her wealth of knowledge as a dedicated Paediatric Nurse at Starship—making a positive difference in the lives of countless children.

Beyond her dedication to healthcare, Nicola finds solace in the great outdoors. She is particularly at home in the ocean and has previously competed in triathlons.

Compassion, empathy and a desire to achieve the best possible outcomes for patients are what guide me in my nursing practice. I believe strongly in a holistic view of health and that there is certainly no ‘one size fits all approach’ to management. I am passionate about working with families to improve healthcare outcomes and supporting future generations to be the healthiest versions of themselves!
