OUR STORY

The first National Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) conference was held in 2009 in Christchurch and a bi-annual conference has been held since that time.

 

One of the recommendations from a survey of participants at the inaugural CNS conference was to establish a national CNS network and the decision was formally made to form a National Society in 2013. 

 

It is the mission of the CNS Society NZ to promote the distinctive contributions of Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) practice to the health and well-being of individuals, family/whanau, communities and healthcare, and to advance the practice of nursing in New Zealand.

 

PURPOSE & GOALS

The purpose and goal of the CNS Society NZ is:

  • To provide a vehicle to bring together clinical nurse specialists in New Zealand

  • To provide a forum for discussion, share knowledge and expertise

  • To provide professional leadership to CNSs

  • To provide a mechanism to consult on issues which affect CNS practice

  • To develop a uniform classification/definition of CNS practice in NZ

  • To increase the visibility and influence of CNSs

  • To encourage nursing research

  • To develop evidence-based guidelines to underpin CNS practice.

  • To develop recommendations on educational requirements for the CNS role and the development of educational resources

  • To promote and sponsor the biennial Clinical Nurse Specialist conference or other such meetings as may be useful or desirable for the advancement of the purposes of the society
