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