    hello everyone! im just curious. which is better? australia or new zealand? and by the way, is it an added point if you have a master's degree in nursing if you want to work in new zealand? how long will it take for nurses to become a permanent resident in new zealand?

    thank you !

    to maraingel i sent you a pm. at the nursingcouncil.org.nz website click on the registration link at the upper left hand corner. then download the "information to register as a nurse in nz" and the "application form " for applicants from the rest of the world . found at the bottom of the page. hope this helps





    hi there wishin4nz i almost fall to those consultant or agencies just to come and work in nz and thank god i saw and learn a lot of things here like i dont need agency just to register. i already download the nz application form from the link that i just saw from one of the good advisers here and im planning to start it now, but my question is how's the status of nz nowadays, the threads are way back 2007 and i just want to know the updates such as cost of living, demands of nsg ? if it is still an advisable to apply to nz. please inform me regarding this matter it would be a lot of help on my part. god bless u...

    hi, is it true that New Zealand does not accept nurses who are second coursers? even if the nurse has more than a year of experience?

    If you read back on some of the posts there have been some nurses who are second coursers that appealed the decision and passed. A lot will depend on what your transcripts state

    yep.. you cannot depend on what others have encountered nor experienced as your case will be totally different from theirs..

    please be reminded that any hospital or facility who are willing to sponsor your the cap and accommodation (for the period of time you are taking your cap) will sign you for a minimum of 2 year contract. now, this is fair enough but be sure you are not going to receive a rate lower than nz$23-24/hr. take note of this!!! may it be a nursing home or tertiary hospitals, the rate should not be lower than this. if they give you higher, well and good.

    that is why, if you do everything on your own, find a sponsor and they want you for 2 years contract, that's fair enough! or if you cannot find a sponsor, pay your own cap and apply directly to any hospitals or nursing homes or legitimate bureau agency in nz. the money you are willing to pay your recruitment/consultancy agency is the money you can actually use by your own to do your stuff.

    good luck! unless you're idiot!
    thank you so much penicillin, for the elaborate warning!
    this is one valuable info for those who are looking for sponsors for the cap (like me.but still unsure about it since my experience is still lacking.. ) thank you!

    hello, i also am thinking of new zealand.. care to pm me about it too? I inquired at a consultancy firm here in PI but the fees are certainly off the roof. Can you tell me how to apply by myself too? good luck to your wife!

    hi guys,

    I was reading this very informative thread due to my interest in applying for a nursing post in nz. I am currently processing my papers, in fact i just got home from manila (I am from Olongapo) and had a very tiring day at DFA and PRC. I just wonder why posts got scarce unlike in 2007. What are the updates? How are the previous posters doing? are you in NZ already? If so, how is llife there? The weather? Living conditions? SALARY?

    Anyone who could share some updates would be greatly appreciated.

    Seventhdust here, an applicant originally bound for Canada but is trying his luck to pursue his dreams in New Zealand.

    May God bless all our endeavors! Kudos!
