Nurse Entry to Practice (NETP) Programme

Hutt Valley DHB

 

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 HVDHB.

The Nurse Entry to Practice Programme (NETP) accommodates NETP graduates both within the hospital and primary care settings. 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 HVDHB.

HVDHB offers a post graduate nursing paper embedded within the NETP programme and assures graduates that on completion of the programme they will demonstrate competent nursing practice. The primary focus of this paper is physical health assessment and making clinical judgements at a graduate nurse level.

HVDHB understands the demands and stresses faced by NETP graduates when they commence their first year of practice and are committed to provide both academic and clinical support.
