ABOUT US




WELCOME TO THE SCHOOL NURSES WEBSITE

The Auckland School Nurses Group (ASNG) is a non profit, non GST registered body of predominantly Registered Nurses working in school based health centre's, most of which are based in secondary schools.

OUR VISION

School nurses contribute to the wellbeing and resilience of young people by ensuring they are healthy, happy, safe and participating positively in New Zealand society.

OUR MISSION

The Auckland School Nurses Group strives to promote excellence by supporting evidence based professional practice, empowering nurses in schools to enhance their skills and knowledge through professionally development and supervision.

WHERE WE HAVE COME FROM AND FUTURE DIRECTION

The Auckland School Nurses Group (ASNG) was established in 1986 to support and provide network opportunities for a handful of Auckland Secondary School nurses. Since that time the ASNG has grown to some 100 members from the Greater Auckland region.

In recent years there has been a significant drive to professionalise the group and 2003 saw changes with the way the ASNG has operated. The most significant change has been the formation of the regional clusters and forming a committee with representatives from each of those clusters.

This website was established in 2004 and the opportunity to expand this site came about with the support and funding through the Counties Manukau District Health Board's 2005 and 2006 School Health Project.

PROFESSIONAL ALIGNMENT

The ASNG is professionally affiliated with The College of Nurses Aotearoa (NZ) Inc. The College of Nurses provides Registered Nurse members with $1 000 000p/a indemnity insurance cover, collegial support as well as subscriptions to professional publications and email updates within the health sector.

The College generously assist by reducing the annual membership for School Nurses working part-time hours to $340 (inc GST). The College requires annual written confirmation (on school letterhead or by email directly from school administrator) of your employment & regular hours at a SBHC. You can join the College online via their website www.nurse.org.nz The College has the right to review this offer at any time. (It is worthwhile noting that many schools cover the cost of College fees for school nurses to ensure that insurance and professional update requirements are met for nursing staff, check with your school.)
