About the role
Te Kaunihera Tapuhi o Aotearoa/Nursing Council of New Zealand is looking for an experienced nurse leader who will bring their passion and expertise in nursing education to deliver and develop a range of regulatory education services and to identify opportunities to further protect the public amid emerging issues and trends.
The Council is empowered under the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act (2003) to serve as the regulatory authority for nursing in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Therefore, key to success in this role is a good understanding of Te Tiriti o Waitangi as well as the ability to develop and maintain genuine and mutually beneficial working relationships with a range of partners or stakeholders. You will enjoy working autonomously and within a team and will be excited to learn and share.
Nurses have a unique role in the health and wellbeing for the people we care for. If you have a passion to apply your skills and knowledge to champion public safety and to ensure our profession remains competent and fit to practice for the future, we welcome your application.
