Hi there. I am a NZ registered nurse who has been living in the US since 1994. I am considering moving back to NZ in the next couple of years due to family issues such as aging parents, and a desire to be close to family again.

I would prefer not to do nursing in NZ (I am tired, plus I am not looking forward to going through the hoops of applying for a practicing certificate) but realistically I probably will have to if I can't earn a livable wage doing something else.

Has anyone here moved back after being away so long? How has nursing changed there in the last quarter century? Would it be hard to fit back in? I would love to hear your stories.
