Information and resources about Aotearoa New Zealand Primary Health Care Nursing Standards of Practice.
In Aotearoa, PHC is a philosophy and approach that is integral to improving the health of all New Zealanders and the effectiveness of health-care service delivery (Clendon and Munns, 2019). The term “primary health care nursing” refers to the practice of nurses who provide care in the community in a variety of roles and settings. These standards are intended to support and guide PHC nurses by clearly articulating the standards of practice for the specialty and outlining a career pathway in PHC nursing.
