You're going to have to contact the hospitals you're interested in to find that out.

No, you need to contact the nursing board, this is an international registration requirement as NZ was struggling with under prepared nurses being registered during thier shortage a few years agos.

It's not up to the hospitals but the NZNC. Last I heard they are pretty strict on the 2 years full time practice minimum for international nurses.
