The Ministry of Health funds the NPTP as a national programme. The NPTP offers a one-year practicum programme which will be taken as the final step in a Master’s degree. Those who have already completed their Master's programme, including the pre-requisite courses to meet the Nursing Council of New Zealand requirements for registration as an NP, may also apply.
There is funding to support this programme. To support an equity focus, additional funding is available to facilitate the participation of Māori and Pacific nurses to become nurse practitioners. Read more about the nurse practitioner training programme and application process.
