Consultation documents

The NZCCCN are currently updating and reviewing the Education Documents for the college. This has been a big project for the committee and we have divided this into three phases:

Phase One: Draft of NZCCCN Position Statement 

Phase Two: Draft of NZCCCN Education Standards

Once the above two phases have been completed the third and final phase of the project will be to align our current expectations for a qualified critical care nurse, through the development of  a standardise knowledge and skills framework that expand on the topics described in Standard 2.3. We see this as a project that will need a broad representation across all intensive/critical care units nationwide, hence a working party will need to be formed.  This will enable us to have a standardised approach to the development of qualified critical care nurses as recognised by the NZCCCN standards.

The review/consultation process for the above two documents will be for one month closing on 1 October 2017. Feedback on the documents are to be sent back to Rod  Bowen  email address: Rodney.bowen@southerndhb.govt.nz
