    the new zealand nursing council asks for a minimum of 1 year hospital experience or working as a paramedic nurse before you can enroll in the CAP

    no..it cannot substitute....the new zealand nursing council requires IELTS, 7 in all areas and at least 1 year hospital experience and/or paramedic nurse before you can proceed with your CAP...CAP is required before you can get your practicing certificate as a registered nurse in new zealand

    Good Day Everyone!

    I have read every page of this thread and I am in with all the information given.

    Firstly, I am a Registered Nurse working as a ICU Staff Nurse for more than 2 years now. And I would really like to start my application for New Zealand the soonest possible time.

    Anyway, I do not intend to get the services of an agency. I want to do it on my own since my resources are limited. I want to save as much as I can.

    What is the first thing to do? I've tried going to the NCNZ website but it says "error".

    I have heard its getting difficult to get a CAP Slot these days, how many months are usually the waiting period for someone to get in?

    Thank you!

    Hello again!!

    To those Nurses in NZ, please help me out!

    Is it really okay/possible if I will not hire any agency in processing my application?

    I am thinking it might be hard to get a CAP school if ill do it on my own.

    No reason why you can not do it on your own, just take the time to complete the paperwork

    Thank you Silverdragon102! Much appreciated!

    I just want to ask, is there an expiration on your Nursing Council decision letter?

    I don't know as I haven't applied to NZ, would suggest you contact them and ask them

    Contact the nursing council. Call or email them if you want to.They will reply to you. I don't think that there's an expiration for the decision letter. It will take you longer time to enroll for the CAP though coz usually the schools are full. Don't worry, visit the website of nursing council and you will get lots of school to enroll to. Contact them via phone or email regarding their fees and requirements. Consider as well the place where you will live in while doing the CAP. Goodluck!
