Building Your Career – Counties Manukau Health is committed to making our graduate nurses feel supported. Our senior nurses and preceptors have all been where you are. They know the organisation inside out and understand the challenges and opportunities.
The support offered on our programmes allows you to focus on integrating into the nursing profession from a student to Registered Nurse. You will be offered new clinical experiences in a supportive environment that will grow your confidence, knowledge, skills and career.
Our NETP programme consists of three components:
Overall there are two intakes each year in January and September. There could also be a May intake which is dependent on vacancies at the time if we are running a May intake, this will be communicated via the ACE website.
The exact number of places on the NETP Programme is dependent on vacancies across the organisation including Primary Care and Aged Residential Care; therefore we cannot predict the exact numbers for the intake. We estimate that there will be 30 positions available in the September 2019 intake and these positions will be across the range of practice settings on offer via ACE Nursing.
Our NETP programme supports new graduate nurses across Counties Manukau Health and extends to those employed in community settings such as GP practices, Primary Health Organisations, and Aged Residential Care facilities. Click here to read the full outline of the NETP programme.
At Counties Manukau Health we are committed to making graduate nurses feel supported. The NETP team includes a Nurse Coordinator/Educator and three Clinical Coaches who work closely with the senior nursing staff in all clinical areas to support the graduate nurse throughout the duration of their first year of practice.
Each graduate nurse will also be assigned a preceptor(s) who has completed an approved training programme. Preceptors and other members of the clinical team, work alongside graduate nurses to enhance clinical skill and knowledge, as well as support goal setting and opportunities for reflective practice.
