    Processing time varries and is a case-to-case basis.QNC is no longer accepting applicants as they are awaiting for the National Registration to commence on July but some states are still accepting Overseas applicants. There's a separate thread for Filipino nurses applying for Australia, might as well browse it for additional infos.

    Hi zyann,
    What is TAFE ?

    Technical and Further Education or TAFE as it is commonly referred to offer courses designed for:


    • young people preparing for their first job
    • mature age people looking to train or retrain
    • people preparing for university studies
    Courses offered at TAFE provide students with practical skills that are transferable to the workplace. Most TAFE courses are based on national competency standards that are set around industry training packages. These packages are designed to produce a nationally consistent curriculum and levels of training so that students receive the same standard of training no matter which TAFE they attend.
    The content of courses run by TAFE are vocationally orientated and require students to undertake practical placements in the workplace. This aspect to TAFE courses provides employers with the knowledge that TAFE graduates have practical experience in applying their skills. Most TAFE courses are developed in consultation with industry.
    There are currently six levels of courses offered by TAFE from Certificate I - IV in a wide range of trade and non trade areas in addition to Diploma and Advanced Diploma courses. A small number of TAFE institutes also offer higher education courses such as Bachelor degrees, Graduate Certificates and Graduated Diplomas in selected fields of study.
    TAFE graduates can claim credit toward higher level TAFE qualifications and toward some university degrees. TAFE graduates with a Diploma may also be eligible for some university courses in a similar field and be given credit or recognition for prior learning. To find out more about this process contact the tertiary admissions body in your State or Territory.

    .....if you are granted a student visa, you can actually allowed to work 20hrs fornightly..just so to earn money to support yourself in a way!!check what will be included in your visa when you get one!!wish you well with your applications..

    Good day guys!

    I have this question that has been bugging me for a long time. I have 2 years work experience from a hospital but I have resigned last march 2009 to focus on my IELTS, the problem now is I am having a hard time getting employed I want to register with NZMC my question is will NZMC accept my professional references even if the supervisors that made the references are from my previous employer? because currently I am not employed in a hospital.

    Hope somebody can answer me.... thanks and Goodluck to all..

    to all the GURUS out there... please...badly need your help..
  10. by   seventhdust
    yes, as long as your references are still employed in the institution where you worked from and that their contact numbers are still updated. NCNZ only calls references in random... not all references are being called. Good luck!
  11. by   sugarcup
    sorry for the error. let me post again my question about NCNZ. i was asking, who can be my professional references if i am a company/school nurse when in the application it states that "should be senior nurse and/or nursing supervisor" which is quite inapplicable in this case because there is no senior nurse or nursing supervisor involved. thank you to those who will reply.
