Society of Youth Health Aotearoa New Zealand (SYHPANZ)
SYPHANZ endorses the National Youth Health Nursing Knowledge and Skills Framework in the promotion of best practice for those working with young people. This framework not only provides a professional career pathway for nurses working with youth to follow but also a guideline for employers – like schools – about the range of services that suitably qualified registered nurses can provide to young people. The development of this framework is an important document for the continuing growth of an experienced and well trained youth-focused nursing workforce, a nursing workforce with the ability to support and enhance the potential of young New Zealanders to become productive and contributing members of society. We encourage the utilisation of this framework which is available to download here. For further information on SYPHANZ please view our website or email us.
