Just to summarize the whole process I would like to repost how the Registration for Foreign Nurses would be done.


1. Take your IELTS exam (test result must be 7.0 on all listening, reading, speaking and writing)

2. Contact the New Zealand Nursing Council.
http://www.nursingcouncil.org.nz/reg.html

3. Complete all requirements and pay NZ 465.00

4. Upon approval of application, Nursing Council will send advise for the nurse to enroll for the Program.

5. Upon paying the tuition fee, you would show the receipt payment to NZ embassy in order to be granted student visa.

to pinoy nurses in nz:

does the university really look at your work experience here in the phils? here's waht happened to my bf. whitheria says he will likely train in a rest home-hospital during thr programme because he only had 4 months experience in the phils. then after finishing the course, it's likely he will work in a rest home too. how can one work in a hospital?

So the visa that nurses from Philippines must apply for is a student Visa?

What's next after all this procedures are done?

As stated in http://www.immigration.govt.nz/migrant/stream/visit/

You may need to apply for a visitor visa or permit if you intend to stay temporarily in New Zealand, but you don't intend to study or work. When you are granted a permit, you can stay in New Zealand for up to nine months.

How could you apply for work permit if you would intend to violate your visa condition?

Just asking Question

NZIS said that you need to apply for a visitors visa , if the course of study is less than 3 mos . otherwise if it is longer than 3 mos you need to apply for a student visa . My wife went to NZ to study CAP on a visitors visa . She is now working in NZ , on a working permit. or better yet call the VIA ( Visa Center) in Manila to verify what kind of visa you need to apply if your a nurse taking up CAP.

People on short courses

If the course you want to study is a single short course of less than three calendar months duration, and is approved or exempted by NZQA , you do not need a student visa, and can apply for a visitor visa.



If you want to study two or more short courses of study or training (whether at the same time, or one after the other), you need a student visa or permit.



Note: We do not consider a term spent studying at a primary, intermediate or secondary school to be a short course, and a student visa/permit must be applied for.

It has been a year since I received a letter from the council saying that I did not meet their requirements. They did not mention why or what those requirements are. Honestly, I got a little bit depressed and stopped trying... Sad

Now I am planning to reapply again and want to know if I can just apply directly to the university for the bridging course... Do I really need to get an approval from the council first?

Is it still okay to inquire to the council about the reasons why I was not approved?

Thanks! All replies would be greatly appreciated.

Good day to all! What is CAP? Is this a bridging program for nurses in NZ? Do we need hospital experience to be able to qualify for this? Thanks Smile

FYI, your bf will NOT BE ALLOWED to register as a nurse in NZ. The nursing council is very strict with its requirement that overseas nurses need to have atleast 1year experience to be considered.

if you're using an agency, dont listen to them if they say that he will be registered, NOT POSSIBLE.

i know a couple of nursing graduates (2 with 7months experience, 1 with 4months experience) in the phil who are also enrolled in nursing here in auckland (their appli for registration was denied, so their only option to stay here in nz is to go for a student visa)~ its very costly, around $20-25K/year.

I suggest your BF get atleast 15months experience before applying here to make sure he would be considered for registration.

Quick advise to new generation of nurses in the Philippines: if you are planning to come to New Zealand keep in mind that you will be working as a NURSE. It does not put you on a pedestal but FILIPINO NURSES in NZ are the well-dignified professionals and we take pride in upholding the values and charisma of this noble profession. It's not about DOLLAR but carrying out the tasks of the profession. We are servants of love in many sense of the word. I am not sure what kind of nursing training do we have in the Philippines nowadays, but please listen to your medieval-aged nurses. Seriously, nursing in new zealand it's not just about theory, but it's about actual care, skills, skills, skills, skills, skills, skills. If you don't have this, please have some time to train overseas, para hindi magmukhang kahiya-hiya sa mga puti, and the whole multi-disciplinary team, gaya ng mga young nurses nowadays. Goodluck!
Lastly, he who seeks the aid of an agent/agency in the Philippines is a RETARDED NURSE. You don't have a place in the whole New Zealand, Go back to grade school and start learning your developmental tasks!

OOh. that is quite harsh.

Anyway, I am planning to get assistance from Golden Summit. As what I have understood, as long as my tuition fee is shouldered by the institution where I should be working, I could expect a nursing job right after, particularly in nursing homes. This is fine with me. But then, the question is what type of visa should I get after 6 weeks in the CAP program? Since there is a supposed job offer for me? Would it be a working visa, holiday visa or still a student visa? How much money should I be preparing?
