Information and resources about Aotearoa New Zealand Primary Health Care Nursing Standards of Practice.

The Aotearoa New Zealand Primary Health Care Nursing Standards of Practice have been developed as part of a joint venture between Mid-Central District Health Board (MDHB), the New Zealand Nurses’ Organisation Tōpūtanga Tapuhi Kaitiaki o Aotearoa (NZNO) and the New Zealand College of Primary Health Care Nurses (the college).
 
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.
