With exciting things happening in the city, the new hospital build and the world famous lifestyle that Canterbury has to offer, there are fabulous opportunities for you to grow, work and play.  Why not start your nursing career with the CDHB?

Boasting one of New Zealand’s largest tertiary hospitals, specialist services and community partners we offer an array of clinical experiences, combined with a highly recognised Nursing Entry to Practice programme (NetP).

The CDHB is committed to growing our own.  Our senior nurses and your preceptors have all been where you are.  They know the organisation inside out and understand the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for you.  

The support on the programme allows you to focus on integrating into the nursing profession from student to Registered Nurse. You will be offered new clinical experiences in a supportive environment that will grow your confidence, knowledge, skills and career.

Whatever your area of interest, we have something for everyone, along with ongoing professional development to ensure that learning continues beyond the classroom.
