Who are we?

The Infection Prevention & Control Nurses College (IPCNC) is a specialist College of the New Zealand Nurses Organisation.

The IPCNC was formed as a special interest section of the New Zealand Nurses Association (NZNA) in the 1970s. It rose from small beginnings when the Infection Prevention and Control Nurse (IPCN) was a pioneer role within nursing and before infection prevention and control (IPC) programmes were embedded into health care organisations.

The IPCNC aims to be the lead voice for IPC in New Zealand. The college actively participates and is represented in consultation groups for national and regional IPC issues e.g. HQSC, ACC, MoH. The College operates within NZNO constitutional requirements.

The College currently has more than 500 members with a wide scope of skills and credentials. IPCNC membership is primarily composed of nurses and other health care professionals who are members of NZNO.

New Zealand IPC programmes are supported formally through the New Zealand Standard NZS8134.3.1:2008. Accrediation and certification programmes utilise this Standard as the point of reference.

The IPCNC hosts a conference every two years. In accordance with NZNO Constitution requirements it hosts an annual AGM. 

 

Our Passion!

Amongst our membership we share one common characteristic, that of PASSION!

We are passionate about reducing the incidence of healthcare associated infections amongst patients and residents. Whatever we can do to affect improvements in patient care practices that can reduce cross infection, we are keen to role model and promote.

Infection Prevention & Control is a career pathway NOT for the faint at heart!

We are up to the challenges that this choice of career brings!
