Open Day 2020 - Postponed
Due to the evolving COVID-19 situation, our annual Wintec Open Day has been postponed. Please click and register to your details below to get updated information.
Studying Nursing at Wintec involves a combination of learning theoretical knowledge with hands-on learning in real healthcare environments. Students will have the chance to provide supervised nursing care with health consumers, whānau and communities, throughout their programmes.
Enrolled nurses work across a range of healthcare specialist settings. They work under the supervision of a registered health practitioner to care for and educate patients in rehabilitation, acute care, aged care, and mental health.
With postgraduate qualifications graduates can work in Advanced Nursing Practice roles which include nurse educator, clinical leader, clinical nurse specialist, clinical charge nurse, registered nurse prescriber in long term and related conditions, health services manager and case manager/co-ordinator. If students undertake the nurse practitioner pathway in the Master of Nursing, upon graduation they can apply to the Nursing Council of New Zealand for the Nurse Practitioner Scope of Practice. Nurse Practitioners provide a wide range of assessment and treatment interventions, ordering and interpreting diagnostic and laboratory tests, prescribing medicines within their area of competence and admitting and discharging from hospital and other healthcare services/settings. As clinical leaders they work across healthcare settings and influence health service delivery and the wider profession.

Students spend time in work placements for credit towards their qualifications. The amount of time they spend on placement in relation to class time varies according to what qualification they're studying and the year they’re in; first year students will spend approximately a quarter of the year doing work placement compared to third year students who will spend most of their time on placement.
