Clinical assessors’ workshop - NESP programme
  The role of clinical assessor for Nurses undertaking postgraduate qualification within your employing
  organisation is very important. The aim of ongoing learning and professional development for
  registered nurses is the integration of knowledge and skills into practice, which are then measured
  against the competencies for registered nurse scope of practice (Nursing Council of New Zealand,
  2007) and the standards of mental health nursing practice (Te Ao Maramatanga, 2012). It is the
  responsibility of the education provider to have a clear assessment process and tool for assessment of
  the nurse against the competencies and standards. It is our intention that the assessor in the process
  is as much a tool as the proforma that is utilised and, as such, is open to development to enhance
  validity and reliability of the process. The date, time and venue will be advised.
  Please direct enquiries to Pauline Humm-Johnson at Pauline.humm-johnson@wdhb.org.nz .

NESP/NETP - graduate training programmes

Graduate mental health nursing programme (NESP)

New entry to specialist practice programme (NESP) - Mental health and addiction nursing
       WDHB in partnership with Whitireia Polytechnic offers the postgraduate certificate new entry to
       specialist practice. This programme provides a supported pathway (both clinical and educational) to
       enable you as a new graduate nurse to receive specialist mental health and addictions nursing skill
       development in line with the Let’s get real framework for clinical practice. Extensive clinical
       placements will be provided within acute inpatient, community mental health & addictions, infant,
       child & adolescent mental health and addictions service and forensic services. The programme is for a
       12-month period. Graduates who successfully complete the programme will be encouraged to apply
       for vacancies in our mental health & addictions service.

Nursing entry to practice (provider) programme
   Our Nursing Council of New Zealand (NCNZ) approved programme is designed to ensure that through
   support, guidance and preceptoring you are confident applying the theory you have learnt, to your
   everyday nursing practice. The programme is for a 12 month period. Clinical placements will be in two
   6 month rotations or, one 12 month placement and reflect both the NETP graduates and our service
   needs. This programme provides a supported pathway, both clinical and educational. In partnership
   with a tertiary provider it is our aim is to ensure the provision of your first post graduate paper. Study
   days will be held throughout your graduate year and a comprehensive clinical orientation will be
   provided for each rotation. Graduates who successfully complete the programme will be encouraged
   to apply for our general nursing vacancies.

Professional development recognition programmes (PDRP)
   The purpose of the programmes:
    to assure the patients/clients of our health service of a safe standard of care delivery by nurses and
       midwives
    to promote a culture of continuous quality improvement, where nurses and midwives seek to develop
       themselves as health professionals and provide the best possible services to patients, clients, their
       families and whanau, and the community
    to ensure nurses engaged in the programme will have met NCNZ competence requirements1 to obtain
       an annual practising certificate. To ensure midwives engaged in the programme will have met the
       Midwifery Council competence requirements 2 to obtain an annual practising certificate.

       These programmes aim to:
        ensure nursing/midwifery expertise is visible, valued and understood
        enable differentiation between the different levels/domains of practice. Value and reward clinical
           practice
        encourage practice development
        identify advanced practice and role models
        encourage critical thinking and reflective practice.

       There are four PDRP levels for the registered nurse:
1.    New graduate registered nurse
2.    Competent registered nurse
3.    Proficient registered nurse
4.    Expert registered nurse
       There are three PDRP levels for the enrolled nurse:
       1. Competent enrolled nurse
       2. Proficient enrolled nurse
       3. Accomplished enrolled nurse

       There are two PDRP pathways for senior nurses:
