New Zealand nursing graduates can apply for jobs at the district health boards (DHBs) of their choice through the Advance Choice of Employment (ACE) scheme.
Visit the Kiwi Health Jobs website to find out more about applying through the ACE scheme.
If you accept a job through the ACE scheme, you will be supported with a structured entry programme.
- Nurse Entry to Practice (NETP) programmes are for nurses wishing to work in hospitals, primary care, or aged and residential care.
- New Entry to Specialist Practice (NESP) programmes are for nurses wishing to work in mental health or addiction nursing.
Each DHB runs their own NETP and NESP programmes. Visit the DHB’s website to learn about their particular programme.
