Pathway



To nurses with two years nursing experience in their home country we offer an excellent pathway to registration in New Zealand, and full-time Registered Nurse work with a large healthcare provider outside of Auckland (to maximise immigration points). This pathway structure should maximise your chances of a successful application for Permanent Residency.

Note: The Nursing Council of New Zealand controls the registration process for nurses, so their website should be consulted re specific requirements for registration in New Zealand. See http://www.nursingcouncil.org.nz/Nurses/International-registration

Speak to your agent for more details, but this diagram summarises the pathway:
