A large single-purpose group will not be deterred.
The Infection Prevention & Control Nurses College, NZNO
The IPCNC was formed as a special interest section of the New Zealand Nurses Organisation some 30 years ago, in the 1970s.
From small beginnings when the role of an Infection Control Nurse was a pioneer role within nursing and indeed before infection control programmes were entrenched into health care organisations to the current day.
Today we boast a large membership and have many highly skilled infection prevention & control nurses amongst us. The infection prevention & control nurse role has evolved into a highly specialised role with a job description scope that covers almost all aspects of health care delivery.
New Zealand infection prevention & control programmes are supported formally through the New Zealand Standard NZS8134.3.1:2008
The IPCNC hosts an annual or biennial conference and accompanying Annual General Meeting. The College is represented by it's National Committee which meets regularly to conduct College business. (Click here to see the current committee )
