What does NETS do?

NETS provides informed comment on significant national nursing education issues as well as developing and supporting innovative strategies for nursing education.  NETS focuses on providing curricula that educate the future nursing workforce to be responsive to the changing health needs of New Zealanders.  This is done in partnership with practice colleagues, consumers, other health professionals and government agencies to ensure the provision of quality nursing education.

Nurse Education in the Tertiary Sector (NETS) was established in 1992 and in 2003 collated a short history of nursing education in New Zealand to mark the 30 year celebration of the move of nursing education to the tertiary education sector. NETS changed its name to Nursing Education in the Tertiary Sector (Aotearoa NZ) in 2012 to reflect the national scope of its work.
