Clinical learning environment

This page is for nursing students coming to Capital & Coast District Health Board (CCDHB) on clinical placements. 

Here you'll find student orientation books and clinical information.

Nurse Entry to Practice (NETP)

The aim of the NETP programme is to provide graduate registered nurses support and professional development to facilitate their transition during their first year of practice. Upon completion of the NETP year, nursing graduates will meet competencies and standards of practice in order to progress to competent level on the Professional Development and Recognition programme (PDRP) determined by the Nursing Council of New Zealand and CCDHB.

Information for NETP nurses and those considering recruiting to the CCDHB NETP Programme.

Senior nurse and midwife resources

This resource has been created to assist nurse and midwife educators in transitioning to their new role. We have used the Nursing Council of New Zealand (NCNZ) and Midwifery Council of New Zealand (MCNZ) competencies as the basis for all they do and for what they teach others. It has tools and links useful to educators and a free online course that forms the first step of learning requirements for their role.

Who we are

Nursing and midwifery are committed to leading safe, effective and compassionate nursing and midwifery care and linking strategies to ensure the workforce can impact on reducing health inequalities across the health journey. To achieve this, the key focus for the nursing and midwifery leadership team is knowing, growing and engaging our workforce to make sure people get the right care at the right time in the right place.
