Kai Tiaki is the Māori term for carer or guardian and has been incorporated in the title of the magazine since it was first published in 1908.

Kai Tiaki Nursing New Zealand

Kai Tiaki Nursing New Zealand is the New Zealand Nurses Organisation's monthly magazine, in print since 1908 and posted directly to over 46,000 NZNO members.

Kai Tiaki covers professional and industrial issues facing nurses and other health workers around the country, records major NZNO initiatives, profiles different practice areas and informs members of current health policy issues.

It provides a forum for nurses to publish practice, education and research articles and to debate important professional and policy matters.

Kai Tiaki Nursing Research

NZNO launched a second journal, Kai Tiaki Nursing Research, in 2010. This is an annual journal showcasing New Zealand nursing research.

It publishes original, full-length research manuscripts from New Zealand-based nurse researchers (or other researchers where the research can be shown to have particular relevance to nursing in New Zealand).

This is a subscription only journal, with the second edition scheduled for June 2011.
