FAQs for Te Whatu Ora members during the COVID-19 crisis

PDRP portfolio due dates in the near future


My PDRP portfolio is due for resubmission soon, but I can't complete it due to the present situation. Will my allowance stop?


Message from the NNPC Executive Committee regarding PDRP activity

Kia ora

Considering the unprecedented circumstances and work situations with COVID-19, it has been agreed by the national Directors of Nursing that PDRP portfolio resubmissions will be granted an extension period of 6 months without allowances being stopped.

DHB PDRP coordinators are working with their Directors of Nursing and developing communication plans to inform the nurses that PDRP portfolio due dates have been extended to 1/10/2020 and ensuring that in the interim allowances won’t cease.

Please contact your local PDRP coordinator for further information.

Take care and look after yourselves.
