Who for All nurses

The Nursing Council of New Zealand published in July 2012 the Code of Conduct for Nurses. It also set the expectation that by July 2015 all nurses (enrolled, registered and nurse practitioners) will be able to demonstrate professional development about the Code of Conduct.

Completing this course enables nurses at Hauora Tairawhiti DHB to meet the professional development expectation set by the Nursing Council of New Zealand. 

On successfully passing the course's assessment, you will be issued with a certificate of completion. If audited by Nursing Council, you will be able to submit this as proof of professional development.

If you have already gained professional development about the Code of Conduct for Nurses through over means, such as attending Nursing Council, NZNO and College of Nurses workshops, then you do not need to complete this package. You are free to do so however if you wish to gain further learning.
