Welcome to the Nurse Entry to Practice Programme (NETP) mini site. This programme accommodates NETP graduates both within the hospital and primary care settings. Central to Capital and Coast District Health Board’s (CCDHB) philosophy for continuing nursing education is the commitment to provide a supported learning environment. The NETP programme offered at CCDHB is accredited by the Nursing Council of New Zealand.
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.
CCDHB offers a post graduate nursing paper embedded within the NETP programme and assures graduates that on successful completion of the programme they will demonstrate competent nursing practice. The primary focus of the paper is physical health assessment and making clinical judgments at a graduate nurse level.
CCDHB understands the demands faced by NETP graduates when they commence their first year of practice and are committed to providing both academic and clinical support.
This mini site provides information for those considering recruitment to CCDHB’s NETP programme and those within the DHB who need access to information regarding NETP graduates and the NETP programme.
For enquiries please email Recruitment@ccdhb.org.nz
CCDHB currently recruits nursing students from around New Zealand who have completed and passed their New Zealand state final examinations. CCDHB have two graduate intakes per year, in January and September. Graduate intake numbers are dependent on vacancies within clinical areas. Therefore if you have not secured a placement in January you have the opportunity to apply for the September intake when it appears on the CCDHB internet career pages.
Capital and Coast District Health Board wants graduate nurses to feel welcomed into the organisation. NETP graduates are welcomed with a Powhiri at the beginning of their orientation. Orientation provides the graduate with generic learning and an introduction to the NETP programme. The post-graduate paper is offered at Victoria University of Wellington which is located on the Wellington Regional Hospital site.
Following on from orientation graduates are orientated to their clinical area by their senior clinical nursing team and preceptor. It is anticipated that graduates will complete clinical orientation within 3-6 weeks of starting their role.
Graduates will be informed of their clinical area prior to commencement. Within clinical areas graduates will be expected to complete generic online learning packages, orientation work books, and study days additional to, and as well as, NETP study days and assignments. It is strongly recommended that graduates utilise the knowledge and skills of their appointed preceptor, nurse educator, associate charge nurse manager and charge nurse manager within their clinical area to assist them in their transition. The NETP Coordinator is available for clinical support and will visit you frequently. You will also receive academic support from the Nurse Lecturing team at Victoria University.
