New Zealand - Nursing


Registered Nurses who can work in the Aged Care sector can be eligible for residence under the Skilled Migrant Category or a Long Term Skill Shortage List Work Visa on account of the skill being listed in the Long Term Skill Shortage List (LTSSL).

The New Zealand Immigration link below explains the pathway to work or residence in New Zealand for Nurses in greater detail.

If you are an overseas qualified nurse, you will need to gain registration in NZ with the Nursing Council of New Zealand.

Once the nursing council accepts your registration you will need to complete a Competency Assessment Programme (CAP) to finalise the registration process.

Kiwi Fern is able to assist you with the visa application to travel to New Zealand to complete the CAP programme.
