Nursing Review, the independent multimedia platform for New Zealand’s nurses, has been published by NZME. Educational Media since 2001.

The popular print editions are delivered to our subscribers as well as a copy going to every hospital ward and general practice in the country.

Along with print news and online news, Nursing Review continues to cut through jargon and politics to provide thoroughly researched, succinct, and always readable articles on themes that matter to all nurses. These are updated regularly on our website.

Nursing Review’s regular professional development activity 
– RRR (Reading, Reflection and application in Reality)

The peer-reviewed RRR article and structured learning activity offers nurses an informative and readily accessible way to help meet their continuing competency requirements.

The attractive four-page article and learning activity is positioned as a pull-out centrefold in the magazine so nurses can read, complete, and file the verified RRR activity in their learning portfolios. Subscribers can also download a PDF of the article and activity from our website.

Each activity is linked to the Nursing Council competencies and is equivalent to one hour of professional development towards the requirement of 60 hours of professional development in three years.
