Welcome to the College of Emergency Nurses New Zealand – NZNO (CENNZ) webpage where we will be publicising upcoming webinars and uploading webinar recordings to watch later.

We aim to provide relevant professional development topics in this webinar programme, and look forward to your feedback via our online survey at the end of each webinar; please keep us updated on the webinar topics of most interest to you!

The webinars will be recorded and accessible via this partner webpage as we know how busy people are and the challenges of working around shiftwork rosters.

We will source presenters who are highly qualified and experienced health professionals in their specialty areas, so we hope these webinars will assist to keep you up to date on a broad spectrum of emergency nursing topics.

We will also be exploring webinars for topics of specific interest to our CNM / CNE / AENN / ENP networks.
