Nurse Entry to Practice (NETP) Programme
The NETP programme helps support graduate nurses in their first year of work.
3rd year Nursing Students
MidCentral DHB warmly welcomes graduates to apply for our Nurse Entry to Practice (NETP) Programme via the ACE Website
. Our NETP programme is Nursing Council of New Zealand (NCNZ)
accredited and supports new graduates nurses within both hospital and primary health care settings. The programme is central to our philosophy of "growing our own" nurses and retaining them through continuing education and ongoing career development.
New graduates are supported to complete the first year of practice programme by our NETP Coordinators, Nurse Educators, Preceptors, Clinical Nurse Specialists, Charge Nurses and nursing staff.
MidCentral DHB recruits nursing graduates from around New Zealand who have completed and passed their New Zealand state final examinations. Numbers are dependent on vacancies within clinical areas - we consider each nursing vacancy as it arises for its suitability as a NETP position. Graduates are employed on a 12 month fixed term contract in one clinical area at 1-.8FTE. Recruitment occurs annually in midyear and end of year, as per ACE Intake Dates.
