STEP 3 : APPLY FOR COMPETENCY ASSESSMENT PROGRAM

While waiting for the Approval Letter from NCNZ , you can now look for your potential school for the CAP .List of CAP PROVIDERS - update May 26, 2010

. Most Pinoys/Pinays study at Waiariki Tech in Rotorua , Whiteria in Wellington , CPIT in Christchurch , Unitec in Auckland and Wintec in Hamilton . But its your choice actually on where to study . Click on their respective websites and make some inquiries regarding tuition fees , requirements , accomodations etc...Start dates for the CAP are usually in January , March , June , August and October each year , but it varies from school to school so it would be wise to email them for the skeds. Tuition fees (excluding board and lodging--thats why you need lots of baon!)as of June 2007 ranges from 4000-4700NZD(includes medical and insurance fees) for the CAP which usually lasts for 6-8 weeks (again depending on the school).

Assuming that you already have your NCNZ APPROVAL LETTER , next step would be to submit your application for CAP to your chosen CAP provider . Requirements usually varies from different schools but we will try to give you a generic list of requirements so that you can prepare it in advance . They need a Notarized Copy of each document

  1. Highschool diploma
  2. Nursing Documents - Transcript , PRC license , Board certificate , Diploma
  3. Character /Professional References
  4. IELTS Test Result
  5. Vaccines (Certification from your doctor) usually for HEPA B, C , T.B , Rubella , Chicken Pox , Measels and Polio
  6. CV
  7. School Application Form
  8. NCNZ Approval Letter
Submit all the required documents , and wait (usually about 1 month) for them to send you the OFFER OF PLACE.

I havent been to New Zealand and I dont know where is the best and worst place to live there. Which school should be safest amongst all.

most of our nurse friends in NZ , studied at Waiariki Tech in Rotorua , next choice would be Wintec in Hamilton. Unitec in Auckland would be nice (except cost of living is very high in Auckland)

IS it more advatageous to use Philippine agency to process all my papers like application for New zealand nursing council approval, visa, arrangement of my accomodation when I reach nz while taking some classes for nursing competency.Philippine agency will charge anywhere from 400-500k as a complete package.Please give an idea on the proper steps to get started if I would be the one to process my papers and coordinate personally with an agency in NZ. Thanks.

Hi! if the ncnz sent me an approval letter that I can already proceed to taking cap last November will it expire for another year? if so, are there payments for the renewal of the application because I heard that almost all schools were full.

nurse2nz said...

just apply for an extension with NCNZ. No payment

hi there!i was already approved by the NCNZ to take the CAP, i have the decision letter too. i did applied for a CAP in different CAP schools but i got no response at all.. it is 8 months already since the date of NCNZ decision letter has arrived. I only have 4 months to reach the period of 1 year or around 9 months if i will apply for a 6-month extension. Do you think it is still possible for me to join the CAP before my application will be expired? thank u! i am patiently waiting now for God's perfect time!
