Registered Nurse Prescriber (RNP)


Did you know you can book consults with our Registered Nurse Prescriber? Nurse Prescribers work in collaboration with our wider team here at Kaipara Medical Centre and can help with a range of topics including long-term conditions, specific medication reviews, mental health, sexual health, contraception, and UTI treatment. 

Scope - A RNP is a Registered Nurse with advanced assessment and diagnostic skills. They generally see patients face to face and can prescribe certain medicines from a designated list. They provide consults for acute presentations such as common infections & minor injuries and see patients living with long term conditions such as Diabetes and Hypertension (high blood pressure).

Collaborative Approach - At Kaipara Medical, our Nurse Prescriber works in a collaborative team with your Health provider (General Practitioner or Nurse Practitioner), Registered Nurses, Health Care Assistant (HCA), Health Improvement Practitioner (HIP), Health Coach, and Awhi Ora. Together as a collaborative team, we aim to provide a wraparound health and wellness service that has traditionally been done by a 'GP only'.

RNP Clinics – At Kaipara Medical, we also offer the following clinics in addition to our standard appointments:

  • Young adult clinic (18-24years old)
  • Contraception/LARC clinic
  • Sexual Health/Smear clinic
  • Wellness appointments where we provide mental health consults and support emotional wellbeing in conjunction with our Health Coach and Health Improvement Practitioner.
