NZATS continues to welcome RNs who undertake this 12 to 18-month course, as it has an equivalent qualifying standard and competencies for anaesthesia assistance as the diploma in applied science--anaesthetic technology, which is studied by AT trainees.
NZATS looks forward to working with NZNO's perioperative nurses college, and other interested parties to develop a robust and safe anaesthesia assistance training programme that will benefit all patients receiving anaesthetic services.
It is disingenuous to infer that either the NZATS or Medical Sciences Council did not consider the role of the nurse anaesthetist, as this is the province of the Medical Council, the New Zealand Society of Anaesthetists and the Australia New Zealand College of Anaesthetists and beyond the regulation of the AT.
