NZNO sections and colleges

New Zealand Nurses Organisation (NZNO) sections and colleges comprise of 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, which you can read in full below.

  • 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.

Benefits of belonging to an NZNO national section or college

Our sections and colleges:

  • provide expert knowledge and advice to the government and other national bodies.
  • participate in the development of evidence-based guidelines and specialty competencies.
  • advance practice through policy and professional development opportunities.
  • keep you informed through newsletters and publications.

You can be part of this!

As an NZNO member you can join up to three sections or colleges related to your practice.
