Graduate Nurse Programme 2017

Planning is underway for the Graduate Nurse Programme 2017 which commences in February next year. This 12 month programme partners with the regional DHB Nurse Entry to Practice Programmes (NETP) and provides training, education and support for nurses wanting to develop a career in a primary health setting.

Pinnacle MHN is pleased to support the 2017 programme. We are now inviting expressions of interest from practices across the network that:

  • are interested in exploring a partnership approach with Pinnacle MHN to support the 2017 programme
  • have an identified qualified nurse preceptor or a nurse willing to undertake the level 700 preceptor course prior to the programme starting

Refer to the notice for more information, and/or to express your interest.

The purpose of the survey is for the Allergy CN to gain an understanding of referral pathways and educational resources currently available to you and your service (for children and young people diagnosed with allergies).
