Health Workforce New Zealand and the Ministry of Health support and fund a number of training initiatives, which include those below.
Nurse Entry to Practice (NETP)
The NETP programme provides funding for new nursing graduates in their first year of practice. The expected outcome of participating in the programme is that trainees meet the criteria to achieve competency Level Two on the Professional Development and Recognition Programme.
Postgraduate nursing training
Health Workforce New Zealand invests in postgraduate training. This investment also supports some registered nurses to qualify as prescribers.
