Karen
Hoare
Nurse Practitioner

 Karen is Professor of child and youth health nursing and also a Nurse Practitioner.

She works in partnership with four general practitioners at Greenstone Family Clinic in South Auckland. Karen has implemented a number of models of care into general practice that result in case managing infants, children and young people.

Until 2020, she also led the school-based health service collaboration between Greenstone Family Clinic and Counties Manukau DHB. This collaboration included NPs and GPs from Greenstone Family Clinic working with school nurses in three high schools in Manurewa. The outcome from this initiative was a significant reduction in teen pregnancies over a number of years. 

Additionally, as a Professor at Massey University, she is the Director of the Post Graduate Nursing programme and Nurse Practitioner Training Programme (NPTP).
