Nursing is a fulfilling career path and an occupation in  high demand in New Zealand. There are three different types of categories and pathways to qualify as a Registered Nurse in New Zealand: 

First Category: Applicants without a nursing qualification 
Second Category: Applicants with an overseas Diploma in Nursing and registered as a nurse in their own country

Applicants who fall within the first category will need to complete a Bachelor of Nursing (duration of three years) from an approved education provider before applying to the Nursing Council of New Zealand (NCNZ) for registration. Applicants who fall within the second and third category will need to complete a bridging course/programme  which will enable them to apply to the NCNZ for registration. Applicants who fall within the third category will need to be assessed on an individual basis by the Nursing Council of New Zealand. There is a specific assessment criteria and process that applicants will need to meet and undergo. Applicants from all three categories would need to have an IELTS score of 7.0 across all bands for registration with the NCNZ.
