    You can find a job easily in the hosp. if you have a hosp experience,and its easier to apply in the nsg homes if you dont have a hosp experience.Hosp has a bigger salary and with better benefits for the nurses.
    Hi AngelNZ. What is the minimum hospital experience required? If a nurse doesn't a have the minimum required hospital experience but have worked in other disciplines (i.e., school nurse, company nurse, clinical instructors, private nurse, etc.) will it be easy for him/her to find a job in a hospital in NZ? What are the advantages & disadvantages of working in a nursing home as opposed to working in a hospital? Can a nurse work in a hospital after acquiring nursing home experience in NZ?

    Please forgive me for asking too many questions. Thanks in advance.

    i am very interested to work in nz too. but i have an agency that could help with only a budget of about 140,000 pesos only.
    most of the nurses i knew have left and are now chatting with me and telling me ...it is a nice place.
    i want to know though...why the words " if you have money , than go for the agency thing"? does this mean that if we donnot link our application with an agency...this would still be possible?...and spend only less than 100,000?

    To be able to give someone a Personal Msg. (PM), one only have to click the username of the member you want to give a PM or an e-mail. When you click the username once, a menu will open up and ask you what to do. You can view the public profile, send a PM or e-mail, find more posts of that particular member or add him up in your buddy list.

    A member can choose to receive or not receive an e-mail if she doesn't one to be e-mailed by members here but if he choose to, he has to go to the User CP option found on the upper left side of the webpage (near FAQ), click on it and then go to the Settings and Options menu and then go to the Edit Options and select to allow e-mail to be received coming from Admins and/or members. Of course, you have to furnish a valid e-mail add. in the Edit E-mail and password option as well.

    For more details on how to learn the diff. options here at allnurses pls. go to this sub-forum:
    http://allnurses.com/forums/f246/

    All questions on the how-to's should be posted there. Thanks.

    Hello. I have the same queries. Anyone who could help us, please?

    Also, regarding the agency thing. It's very possible to process the NCNZ papers without the aid of an agency. I did. Just check out their site (link posted somewhere in this topic), print out their application pack (or have it mailed to you), and make sure you have everything listed in the checklist sent to them. I received the confirmation letter around a month after I submitted the last of their requirements. If you think you could do all the legwork yourself and can find yourself accommodations when you get there, then I'm pretty sure you don't need an agency.
