    is this agency genuine? how much their placement fees will be?
    have you applied in this agency already? if so, what's your current status?

    You don't need any agency to work in NZ.All you need to do is to get your assessment from nursing council,then look for facility to have your CAP and apply for a Visa directly to Nz embassy and most important money to pay for all the fees..directly to the concern not to an agency..

    oooh!... thank you czar!

    there's a NZ consultancy here.. i already paid 23T .. but decided not push thru.. cause the total expense will be 450T .. aw!

    another consultancy here said that they don't need the ielts (???), and only asking 160T ..

    its a good thing you can directly apply to NZ employers..

    your welcome!

    What is your specialty? where in Nz do you plan to have your CAP? I can give you the websites of those facilities you need..just don't believe those agents.. they are just interested in your money..Just apply directly to immigration if you want visa and to nursing council for your assessment. all the information you need are all in their website.all you need to do is read..if your looking for job apply directly please..they entertain application through internet or mail..

    2nd coursers denied?! whew! that's a bad but a realistic warning, i hope i would be lucky enough to be approved.. what usually are the reasons for the disapproval? thanks.
    They ask for "pure" bachelor of nursing for Philippine applicants.

    Agencies and this is what any consultancy is, nothing more than that; does not issue visas or licenses. The fact is that the country requires that one pass the IELTS and meet their standards of passing.

    Any agency that tells you otherwise, you need to run from them.

    Even if one applies directly to an employer, they still need to hold a license as well as a visa to work there. And both of these require passing of the IELTS.

    how about financing? can anybody post any lending company that finance nurses for their CAP and plane fares? can we compare which company has the lowest rate of interest?

    thanks and more power!

    hi guys, am new here... i have been reading this thread for like 2 days now since I am planning to also try my luck as a nurse in New Zealand..I was contacted by a consultancy firm if am interested to work in NZ and they said they will help me with the application. But the downside is, they are already asking for money. Do i still have to go through this consultancy firm just to reach NZ? I have read in the back posts that i could do the legwork myself but the problem is I really don't know where to start... I really would wanna start with the application process really soon since my IELTS will be expiring this October 2008... can anyone give me the details of what I'll be doing? I feel so at lost now....I would really appreciate some help....Thank you thank you thank you everybody! =)

    HI!!!! Maybe I can help. I have bbeen through this process.....
    Please go now to the website of www.NZNC.com or look for this website at the google new zealand nuring council.There, you can start downloading and print the necessary documents to fulfill. You need to go to PRC, your school and find three people who will attest to your character, pay to the New Zealand office in Makati and request for a red ribbon in DFA.
    But first of all. are you blue blooded NURSE? never a second courser?
    Good if yes...becos, you will be given a probable approval in the assessment.
    remember too, it does not mean that you can qualify if you got a seven all in Ielts..or have a two years experience..no no no....
    You still need to pray hard....Any ways...GOOD LUCK!

    NCNZ requires one year post registration work experience and a pass of 7.0 in all band of IELTS. Khirbz is correct , visit www.nurse2nz.blogspot.com --very helpful folks indeed goodluck

    Thank you so much Barbie38, you were such a big help...are you working in NZ already? yes, am a blue blooded nurse, never a 2nd courser. How much experience do you need for them to approve your application? I only have 9 months hospital experience and right now am currently working as a clinical instructor. I have been teaching for like 1 year and a half already. Do you think my teaching experience will qualify me? I am from Iloilo City and thinking about going to Manila to authenticate my papers would really be difficult for me. Sis, do you think I can still make it through since my IELTS expiration is October 2008? Thank you so much again..hoping to hear a response from you again.

    so are second coursers a no-no in NZ? i am a second courser and i've started processing documents required by NZNC... I don't wanna go through the whole process and be denied in the end...
