Work Experience Requirement as of Dec 2009

Please be informed that the Work Experience Requirement is Critical in 3 different stages in your NZ Application.

1. NCNZ - their work experience requirement changes from time to time. I suggest that you email / call them directly to verify :

oseas@nursingcouncil.org.nz / + 64 4 3859589

2. CAP schools- again different CAP schools requires different length of work experience. (2009 trend is MOST CAP providers requires 2 or more years of work experience. You will have a limited choice of CAP provider if you have less than 2 years of work experience. Contact them individually for their requirements.

3. Work Application - ( 2009 trend= Private / Government hospitals prefer applicants with 2-3 or more years of work experience. Please bear in mind that you are competing for slots with other overseas applicants with heaps of work experience , NZ new graduates plus other kiwis that are returning to nursing. If you have less than 2 years of work experience you will have a slight difficulty in securing a job offer from a hospital. But there are still jobs from resthomes and other facilities.)

These are all trends based on the experiences of Nurse2nz forum members for 2009. Do not take my word for it. I just wanted all of you who are just starting their NZ application to be informed of the latest trends in nursing in NZ.

Hello there!
Is it possible that I will be waiting for more than one month after submitting the CAP school requirements?
I'm really confused and in doubt right now.
