ACE Nursing Reports

ACE RMO Reports

The Advanced Choice of Employment (ACE) process has been successfully operating since 2003, and is the national electronic matching process for recruiting graduate doctors and nurses entering into positions within the 20 District Health Boards (DHBs) in New Zealand.

The ACE process was initially developed as a system for placing medical graduates within DHBs, and was subsequently adapted in 2012 for the recruitment of new graduate nurses.

The ACE process is intended to simplify the application process and to streamline the recruitment of graduates. Use of the ACE process also aims to address historical challenges such as:

  • A lack of national consistency with different opening and closing dates for applications 
  • Different recruitment criteria amongst employers, such as résumé formats and reference checks 
  • Multiple job offers to the same graduates.

TAS manages ACE on behalf of the 20 District Health Boards (DHBs) in New Zealand, and we contract the Northern Regional Alliance (NRA) as providers of the ACE services.

ACE Intake Reporting Cycle

We generate and release ACE Nursing intake reports on behalf of the 20 DHBs, using data extracted from the ACE system.

There are two ACE Nursing intakes that occur in each year – a mid year intake and an end of year intake. We produce two reports for each of the two annual ACE Nursing intakes, as a result of changes introduced in late 2017.

Intake reports   Availability     Contents
Algorithmic  Match Report                 Approximately two weeks after the electronic match is conducted for an intake
  • Presents a summary of the immediate outcome of the electronic algorithmic match; as well as profiles of all applicants included in the match and those applicants who were not matched.
  • Comprises a subset of information relating to a specific intake.

  • Presents summary information about the intake, a profile of applicants included in the match process, outcome of the match process, a summary of activity relating to The National Talent Pool, and the profile of graduates employed via the intake.

ACE RMO Reports

We manage the Advanced Choice of Employment (ACE) RMO process on behalf of the 20 DHBs nationwide.

ACE RMO is the national recruitment process for final year medical students, applying for first year pre-vocational medical training (House Officer) positions within the 20 DHBs in New Zealand. ACE RMO uses a centralised match process that simultaneously considers applicants’ employer (DHB) preferences and the DHBs’ ranking of applicants.

The match process results in applicants being matched to one House Officer position in one DHB, in accordance with their expressed DHB preferences.

Pre-vocational Medical Training

Pre-vocational medical training is undertaken by all graduates of New Zealand and Australian accredited medical schools, and doctors who have sat and passed the New Zealand Registration Examination (NZREX Clinical).

Pre-vocational medical training spans the two years following graduation from medical school and includes both postgraduate year 1 (PGY1) and postgraduate year 2 (PGY2). DHBs are required to provide sufficient positions for graduates from a New Zealand medical school who are citizens or permanent residents of New Zealand or Australia.

We contract the Northern Regional Alliance (NRA) to deliver ACE RMO services. 

ACE RMO is for NZ and Australian medical graduates
