To become eligible for NHPNZ membership, a practitioner must hold a qualification in a recognised modality obtained from a NHPNZ approved and accredited teaching establishment/college.

For Practitioners who have obtained a qualification from a teaching establishment not approved or recognised by the NHPNZ, an application and submission providing full details of appropriate training, qualification and experience, if applicable, may be sent to the NHPNZ to be forwarded to the Registrar.

All Registered Members are governed by a Code of Ethics and Code of Conduct.

The full Document may be found in the Membership Application Accompanying Information Pack.

  • Annual Insurance Declaration, a requirement by our Insurance Company
  • Continuing Professional Development for the year passed must be provided (the number of hours/credits varies within the different Professional Associations/ Training Establishments)
  • Current First Aid Certificate
