The Process
Nice Nurse

Step1: 

Credentials Verification

Once you register with us and provide the first part of the fees we start the process by applying to The Credentials Verification Service for the Nursing Council of New Zealand (CVS-NCNZ) at CGFNS International, Inc.

The process is designed to determine that you are, who you say you are and that your education and work experience are true and satisfy the requirements of the NCNZ.

CGFNS International verifies and authenticates your identity documents, academic and professional credentials, and nursing employment. We then prepare a report, which you must review and authorize before we can send it to the NCNZ. Once the NCNZ receives the report, you will then be invited to apply for registration with the NCNZ

Step 2: 

Send Application to Nursing Council

Once we have received your report, we will request CGFNS to send it to the Nursing Council. It can take up to 3 working days to receive your report. You will then receive an email inviting you to apply online for registration.

The Nursing Council will assess your application against the seven registration standards and make a decision regarding your registration. You will be asked to make a declaration for fitness for registration and to complete a criminal history check. Criminal history checks are valid for six months only.

You may be required to complete a Competence Assessment Program (CAP) prior to registration.

Once you are registered, you will be asked to apply for an Annual Practicing Certificate. This entitles you to practice as a nurse in New Zealand.

Step3: 

Apply for CAP Programme

 

Once we receive the approval from Nursing Council we will start applying to different CAP Program institutes (Please note the seats are very limited)

Overseas nurses are required to complete a program before registration in New Zealand. 

These programs seek to assess the ability of overseas nurses seeking registration, or New Zealand nurses who are returning to practice, to demonstrate the competencies for their scope of practice under the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act 2003 (“the Act”).

The standards relate to each of the following five areas:

  • Program Content

  • Provision of Resources

  • Teaching and Learning Processes

  • Evaluation of Outcomes

  • Quality Management

Nurses having successfully completed a competence assessment program are said to have met the Nursing Council of New Zealand (“Council”)’s competencies for his or her scope of practice. They can then apply for registration as nurses with the NCNZ.

Step4: 

Visa Application, Accommodation, Flights, Transfers and any other services
