Police Vetting is a requirement for nurse registration process for nurses and three yearly vetting is a requirement for all those who work with children. The Police Vetting Service provides criminal history checks and other relevant information to employers and Approved Agencies. The Government is considering establishing a statutory framework for the Police Vetting Service, as there currently is none. NZNO is seeking your feedback on their consultation document which discusses what this may look like, and whether legislation would be an advantage.
