    From reading your posts in the Canadian forum, I thought you had a job in Alberta and that's where you wanted to be?

    Hi Fiona, Thing they are answering the question and their answer is the last sentence re NCLEX and IELTS being different. I think that it has been how they quoted. Well that is how I read it

    you can not use your NCLEX in lieu of the IELTS exam. NCLEX has no bearing in NCNZ application . you will still need IELTS 7.0 in all bands and at least one year work experience to be able to register with NCNZ. and if you are a second courser I guess you will have a problem securing registration as of the moment.

    hello everyone, i am new in the group,can I ask some question for the Filipino nurses who are already working as RN in New Zealand?

    1. How many months stay did you apply in your visa?
    2. After the CAP and you were issued a practising certificate and job offer, how much is the fee for converting your visit visa to...
    3. Is it work to residence visa?or any type of work visa?
    4. How many months of working as an RN before you can apply for permanent residency? Their website says 2 years, but I heard 3 months is enough.

    Thank you very much to all especially to the moderators of this wonderful site

    1. you could apply for 3-4 months visit visa.
    2.after the cap, you apply for a work permit. 200nzd
    3. work permit
    4. you can immediately apply for PR (file the EOI) after you receive your JOb offer. no need to wait for 3 months

    please visit www.nurse2nz.blogspot.com and www.nursingcouncil.org.nz
    goodluck

    Yes, this is unreasonable because if you have to pay for the competency enrollment then you dont have to go to them and pay the 180,000 pesos. Just do it yourself. Research on how to proceed and save the 180,000 pesos. That makes sense, isnt it?
    Try to inquire in Timaru Hospital. I had my 6 wks CAP in that hospital. I only paid NZD750 for the whole course and they offer the CAP for free if you will sign an employment contract for 6 months. That price was 2 yrs ago. I think they are still the cheapest and I had a good clinical exposure.
