Our Nurses

Rhonda Rhodes

I qualified as a registered nurse in 1979 in Whangarei and then travelled overseas and trained in Paediatrics at Princess Margaret hospital for Children in Perth, working there and later back in Whangarei.

I also worked as a District Nurse in Whangarei before starting my family in 1987. I was born and raised in Warkworth and returned here in 1991 and have been a Practice nurse in the area for many years at Kowhai Surgery.

I enjoy all aspects of primary health care especially the diverse range of skills required, ongoing learning opportunities and the close association with clients and their families.

I have lived in Warkworth since 2003, I am married with two children who have been schooled  here, and been involved in several local clubs . I love  working in a smaller community and also enjoy meeting all the new people to the area.
