NZNO Colleges and Sections

New Zealand Nurses Organisation (NZNO) Colleges and Sections comprise groups of members with a focus on a specific field of nursing.

In February 2010 NZNO adopted a strategic framework for future development of NZNO special interest groups:

  • National sections relating to a clinical specialty practice will move towards meeting the criteria to become a clinical college
  • National sections which represent a membership or role classification will remain as a section
  • New groups of members will be either directed to an existing clinical college or form as a virtual network.
