    Hi! I am a registered nurse here in the Philippines, but i don't have the any work experience. I already have a Permanent Resident Visa and will be flying to New Zealand in a couple of months. I have an IELTS band score of 7.5, Academic. What do I need to do once I'm there to pursue a nursing career? I would really appreciate a reply. Thank you.

    I already checked the nursing council of new zealand website and I can't find out exactly what I need to do. You're most probably right , I do need to get assessed. Thank you.

    You must have registration with the NZNC, three years experience, a Bachelor of Nursing degree and work in only a few specialities (like critical care) now to get a visa according to

    Registration requirements (registration does not entitle you to a visa as you must meet above requirements)
    International registration / Nurses / Home - Nursing Council of New Zealand

    Good luck in your career.
