Revised audit process

05 December 2014

Since 2006 the Council has operated a recertification audit process linked with the APC renewal process. In the interests of improving the audit process and due to the popularity of the online APC renewal method we have now separated the APC renewal and audit processes. Previously nurses selected for audit were not issued a practising certificate until the audit process was complete and were unable to renew their APC online.

Beginning this December those nurses randomly selected to complete audit will be able to renew their APC online and will be issued with their APC prior to the completion of the audit process. The Council understands that being selected for audit can cause feelings of apprehension or anxiety and hopes that implementing this change will help ease these feelings. Should you have any questions regarding this change or with the recertification audit process please email us on audit@nursingcouncil.org.nz
