ACE Nursing Reporting Processes

Background

ACE Nursing Intake Reports

Contact the Reporting Team


The Advanced Choice of Employment (ACE) Nursing process has been successfully operating since 2012, and is the national electronic matching process for recruiting graduate nurses entering into Nurse Entry to Practice (NETP) and Nurse Entry to Specialist Practice (NESP) programmes in New Zealand. There are two ACE Nursing intakes each year - a mid-year intake and an end of year intake.

TAS (formerly DHB Shared Services) manages ACE on behalf of the 20 District Health Boards (DHBs); and it contracts the Northern Regional Alliance (NRA) as providers of the ACE services.

TAS produces and releases ACE Nursing intake reports on behalf of the 20 DHBs using data extracted from the ACE system.

ACE Nursing Reporting Processes

Since late 2017, new processes have been introduced for reporting on ACE Nursing. The ACE Nursing Team provides TAS with data extracts from the ACE system at two specific points of each intake. TAS undertakes checks, cleanses, prepares, organises and analyses the data; before generating a final report.

While an ACE Nursing intake is underway, a lot of dynamic change occurs to the data captured in the ACE system. Applicants may change preferences and withdraw throughout the intake period. Additionally, job offers are made and accepted unpredictably after the electronic match is complete. As a result ACE Nursing data can change on a daily basis.

There are only two points in the recruitment process at which stable and reliable data can be extracted - at the time of the electronic match and once the intake closes. Data extracted at all other points during an intake, is not considered accurate or reliable and is only valid on the day it is extracted.

 Therefore, two reports are produced for each of the two intakes that occur each year:

Background

The Advanced Choice of Employment (ACE) process was initially developed as a system for placing medical graduates within District Health Boards (DHBs), and has subsequently been adapted for the recruitment of new graduate nurses.

 The ACE online process is intended to simplify the application process for positions associated with Nurse Entry to Practice (NETP) and Nurse Entry to Specialist Practice (NESP) programmes, and to streamline the recruitment of graduate nurses.

 TAS (formerly DHB Shared Services) manages ACE on behalf of the 20 District Health Boards (DHBs); and it contracts the Northern Regional Alliance (NRA) as providers of the ACE services.
