NZ Triage Course

Statement

Triage is an advanced emergency nursing assessment skill for Registered Nurses.

The CENNZ triage course supports the proficient emergency nurse to make rapid assessments, select the appropriate Australasian Triage scale score using skilled questioning and clinical judgement, and initiate early interventions.

CENNZ Triage course is nationally recognised as foundational training in triage for the New Zealand emergency nursing practice context. Course instructors are experienced emergency nurses.

CENNZ triage course endorsement is limited to courses that are officially provided by CENNZ. The workbook resources, course materials and tools provided are copyrighted to CENNZ.

A minimum of two years emergency or urgent care experience in addition to NZRC CORE Advanced is ideal prior to completing the CENNZ triage course. Nurses who do not meet these 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.

Time commitment and availability for pre-course work is essential.

Components of the course: 

1. Pre-reading and course work (approx 20hrs) 

2. Two day course with:

  • An exam on the pre-course work (pass rate for the exam is 80%) 
  • Practical Scenario based assessments.

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. 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. This is often different from the attendee information. Invoicing is automated via the website when you submit your application and cannot be changed afterwards.

Cost: $595 for CENNZ levied members, $750 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 workplace only pays the member cost of $595.00, you will be expected to cover the extra cost of $155.00.
