NZ Triage Course

Statement

Triage is an advanced assessment skill.  It is desirable that the course participant has a minimum of two years emergency or urgent care nursing experience or equivalent.  They should have completed New Zealand Resuscitation Council level 6 or equivalent prior to the course.

Nurses who do not meet this criteria will need a letter of support from their manager or nurse educator and will be accepted at the discretion of the course co-ordinator.

Each course has a good 4-6 weeks of pre-course work before attendance. You need to make the commitment to be available to do this work when applying to attend any particular course.

The number of participants per course is a maximum of 24.
Courses can be booked out months in advance.

Application Process:

Please read carefully

Applications are accepted online only and must be received before the close off dates. We now have a credit card payment option along with an invoice option where you can pay by direct credit or cheque. Invoices and receipts are sent directly by email when booking is complete.

Please ensure you enter the correct email address and invoicing details for the person who needs to receive invoices and receipts. We cannot change the invoice once it has been sent. We also cannot resend the invoice if you have entered an incorrect email address. Invoicing is done via the website when you submit your application and cannot be changed afterwards.

Cost: $550 for CENNZ levied members, $650 for non members.

To pay the lower price:

  • You must be a levy paying member of CENNZ for the financial year in which the course is being held  The CENNZ Levy is $25.00 per annum from 1st April to 31st March of that financial year.
  • You must be a member of NZNO to join CENNZ

If you are not a member of CENNZ and your DHB only pays the member cost of $550.00, you will be expected to cover the extra cost of $100.00.
