The country's district health boards are surprised nurses have voted down the latest pay offer.

The Nurses Organisation says while the DHBs made promising moves on pay, the offer contained "too many ambiguities".

The union's plans for strikes in August and September are now back on the table.

DHBs spokesperson Jim Green spoke to Susie Ferguson.
