I am also from Malaysia,Cris...

I am looking into going with my family,and of course to pursue my career as a nurse.I haven't yet started ob the process.I am now looking into how to get registered with their nursing board.Good to know and share.

You need to know all the requirements from Nursing Council NZ.  First you need to get approval from them and study a Competency Programme Assessment for 3 months, then have a registration to practice in New Zealand. 

Visit for further information.

To correct this - Competency Programme Assessment to Competency Assessment Programme (CAP)

Yes, got it.I am working on my IELTS now.Then I am going to send in all my papers for nursing registration!

Thanks,there's so many more papers to finish up.But thanks,will get on it one at a time.:)

The thing is-these agencies don't help you at all in terms of registration with their nursing board or even on giving you helpful guides on how the process works,pontxo80. check that

that is a good link, had a quick browse. It will be very useful.  Cheers.

Hi Jay!

I would suggest you to create a new thread on the New Zealand forum for better visibility!

To Kamalamaniyam,
You may need to have a registration to be able to practice this in New Zealand.  The qualification may not be comparable with NZ standard.  You may need to have a further study to complete the process.

hello AheadNZE,

Is it for sure that I will have to go for the CAP? The NCNZ aren't clear on this matter when I emailed them. May not have to go for it.

hi Azilahchan

If you want to practice your nursing here, it is absolutely important to register yourself with Nursing Council.  Once you have registered, you need to complete the compentency (CAP) in NZ to complete the registration. 

You may email me too at cris[at] for immediate reply.  Sorry was not able to check the forum lately.
