Nursing is one of the most respected professions in New Zealand, with a host of other benefits attached. A registered nurse’s professional career gets going as soon as they gain their registration. Also, due to the shortage of nurses in New Zealand, eligibility assessment for Residence application is given priority by Immigration New Zealand (INZ).
A Registered Nurse (RN) average salary in New Zealand is between NZD 54,000 to NZD 78,000 per annum (as per career), which is sufficient to support a family in a safe and sound environment while working in the best healthcare setups.
Without any further ado, let’s take a look at the process for becoming a Registered Nurse(RN) in New Zealand:
To begin with, one is required to first gain registration from the Nursing Council of New Zealand.
CAP enables overseas registered nurses to meet the competence requirements of the Nursing Council of New Zealand to become eligible for a New Zealand Registered Nurse Practising Certificate and work in all healthcare settings.
This course comprises 6-12 weeks of training, with a combination of classroom days and clinical duties.
Course fees: The course fees range from NZD 8000 to NZD 12000, depending upon the institute.
