About the PDRP

The Professional Development Recognition Programme (PDRP) is a clinically focused competency-based programme for nurses. It is a national programme, endorsed by the Nursing Council of New Zealand and the New Zealand Nurses Organisation. While PDRPs have to comply with both the National Framework for PDRPs (2017) and the NCNZ Framework for Approval of PDRPs (2013), organisations are able to adapt their PDRP to include specific requirements. Capital & Coast, MidCentral and Whanganui Districts have aligned their PDRPs to meet the above frameworks. 

The three PDRPs include:

 

PDRP for enrolled nurses

 

PDRP for registered nurses

 

PDRP for senior nurses

For nurses in the primary sector, the new employing organisation must have a PDRP Agreement (MOU) with the district.
 
 

Transfer application forms must be completed and sent to: PDRP@ccdhb.org.nz 

 

At Capital & Coast transfer of PDRP is valid until the expiration of the original portfolio, or for 12 months from the date of employment.
 
To remain current on the PDRP, a new portfolio of evidence reflecting the current area and level of practise must be completed and assessed as meeting all requirements prior to the expiration date of the transferred PDRP. Please note, the time frame for assessment is 4-6 weeks.
 
For all other organisations, please contact the PDRP Coordinator, as per the Contact details on Page 3 of the PDRP Handbooks.
