Nursing Professional Development Recognition Programme (PDRP)

The Professional Development and Recognition Programme (PDRP) is a contemporary professional development framework which assists nurses to further develop knowledge and skills to provide safe and effective care.

Hawke’s Bay District Health Board (HBDHB) PDRP is accredited by the Nursing Council of New Zealand (NCNZ) to meet the competency assessment component of the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance (HPCA) Act 2003. The HBDHB PDRP includes NCNZ requirements for annual practicing certificates (APC).
