    I like the idea of incorporating them all together.

    How about including Oceania into it i.e. NANZO, thus Aus, NZ and the south pacific would all be included. I think sometimes the smaller dots (inc. NZ) on the globe are sometimes forgotton about, so a united front could be good for all. And the aussies sound good for it!

    Good Idea I vote for Oceana simply because everyone would know what it meant when looking up "nursing discussions" on the board. It would help in inviting input from our neighbours such as Papua and Fiji.

    I just have little faith in my fellows however, and believe that as soon as Brian converges the threads into oceana he wil be deluged by members complaining about how we are "not important enough to have our own thread". 2 gets you 10 that these will be members we have never heard of before and will never hear of again.

    If Brian simply added Oceana to the discussion group WE could use it as an incorporative thread while not "offending" others.

    NANZO sounds like a good idea. It gets my vote.

    ps it would include Tasmanians as well, they seem to get left off international maps, so it will make them feel happy (joke guys OK!)

    Oceania gets my vote.

    ANZAC will always mean something special for me.

    Why not simply;
    "Down Under" Nurses forum.
    That pretty well covers all of us in the south pacific.

    Oceana also gets my vote, covers all the other "little" islands around Australia.

    Thank you for your replies l am still of the opinion that the title of Australia limits people who contribute

    I might get myself organised in a day or 2 and ask Brian re a name change - this may not be possible now - however if it is explained in the next newsletter then it may be OK

    Thank you for your replies.

    Hey Tookie if you recheck this thread you might notice we got the name change - I picked Australasian froum as so many conferences and Journals use that name and it does include everone in this little corner of the world:spin:
