Nurse Prescriber

Alana has been a part of the Bethlehem Family Doctor team for the past 5 years, when she and her family moved to Tauranga from Rotorua.

In 2021, she set her sights on higher qualification, training to become a Nurse Prescriber. Nurse prescribers are registered nurses who have completed additional training which enables them to prescribe from a schedule of common medicines for common conditions as well as making request for some diagnostic tests including blood tests & swabs.

Alana is available for booked appointments 4 days a week. Dr Nigel Kim provides her with supervision & support.
