International Medical Graduates

New Zealand requires international medical graduates (IMGs) who wish to work as nurses, including community care nurses, to meet specific requirements and undergo a registration process. The Nursing Council of New Zealand (NCNZ) is the regulatory body responsible for nursing registration in the country. Please note that requirements and processes may change over time, so it's essential to contact the NCNZ directly. Here are the general steps that IMGs need to follow:

Assessment of Qualifications: IMGs need to have their nursing qualifications assessed by the NCNZ. This assessment will determine whether your qualifications are equivalent to New Zealand nursing qualifications.

English Language Proficiency: As English is the primary language of healthcare in New Zealand, IMGs may be required to demonstrate their English language proficiency. This can often be done through tests like the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) or the Occupational English Test (OET).

Competence Assessment Programme (CAP): IMGs who have completed their nursing education and training outside New Zealand may be required to complete a Competence Assessment Programme (CAP) in New Zealand. The CAP helps assess your nursing knowledge, skills, and competence in the New Zealand context. It often includes theory and clinical components.

Application for Registration: After successfully completing the required assessments and meeting the English language requirements, you can apply for registration with the NCNZ. There may be different registration categories, including Registered Nurse or Enrolled Nurse, depending on your qualifications and the type of nursing role you are seeking.

Police Checks and Health Declarations: You may be required to provide evidence of a satisfactory police check and health declarations as part of your registration process.

Visa and Work Eligibility: Ensure that you have the necessary visa and work eligibility to work in New Zealand. Contact New Zealand Immigration for information on visa requirements and work permits.

Supervision Period (if applicable): Depending on your individual circumstances, you may be required to undergo a period of supervision to ensure you meet the necessary competencies for independent practice in New Zealand.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD): Registered nurses in New Zealand are expected to engage in continuing professional development to maintain and enhance their skills and knowledge. You should be prepared to commit to ongoing learning and development as part of your nursing practice.
