Competence

If you have concerns about the competence (or performance) of a nurse, you may wish to notify the Council of those concerns in writing.

Employers must contact the Council when dismissing a nurse from employment for competence-related reasons, and when a nurse resigns because of competence-related reasons.

When making a notification please use the Concerns about a Nurse form in the Downloads on this page. If you wish to discuss your concerns further before deciding about completing the form, please call our nurse advisor on 04 381 9086.

Information about the competence review process is in the Downloads box on this page.
