Mrs Merie Claridge RN BN Research Nurse

Merie has been a registered nurse since the 1970s and has had a varied nursing career working in many disciplines. One of the highlights was the seven years she spent at the Wellington Regional Plastic, Maxillofacial & Burns Unit at Hutt Hospital, where she became an advanced nurse practitioner. Merie’s most recent role was clinical nurse manager in Rheumatology, involving creating and setting up the first nurse lead clinic at Hutt hospital. She has also been involved in post-graduate development at Victoria University of Wellington.
Merie looks forward to the next chapter of her nursing journey as part of the GMRI research team.
