This page contains all the information and forms needed to complete an RN or EN portfolio using the Wairarapa & Hutt Valley PDRP Handbook.

Currently, all nurses working in Hutt Valley hospital, local Regional Public Health, and District Nursing are using ePortfolio. Paper portfolios will only be accepted from local NGOs, ARC and PHOs.

If you work for a health organisation within the Hutt Valley area, such as a PHO, NGO or ARC, then we can arrange access to ePortfolio for you. Please contact the Nurse Coordinator Professional Development if you would like to discuss using ePortfolio.

All of the how-to guides for ePortfolio are below and within the Ko Awatea gateway. If you require a Word version of the competencies, please select the appropriate level portfolio from the list below.
