Radiology Protection Training for Trainee/New NPs - Update

28 Feb 2020

The Nurse Practitioner intern programme currentlyoffered by all three tertiary institutions does not include Radiation Protection Training which is a pre-requisite for NPs to be authorised to order radiology investigations at Waikato DHB. Karyn Coltman-Hunt, Waikato DHB Medical Radiation Technologist and Radiology Educator provided a session last year to members of the Midland NP Group (interns and NPs). Recently qualified NPs who attended before they completed their training will need to confirm their NP registration with Karyn to activate their permission.
