Here’s an update on what’s been happening lately in our little New Zealand household…
- All of my paperwork has arrived at the Nursing Council, and it’s been confirmed. They should have everything they need to evaluate my application.
- Once my application for RN registration is approved, I have to wait till I have it in hand before I can apply for an annual “practising certificate”.
- Once I have both my RN registration and practising certificate in hand, I can start working at the hospital. My tentative start date is July 12th, but this may have to be moved back.
- I am writing a post on “How to Become a Nurse in New Zealand” so that other US nurses will have a resource and a place to ask questions. Once I’m done with it, I’ll put it on my sidebar under the “Moving to New Zealand…” section. So far, my first version is 5 pages single-spaced. Yikes.
That’s pretty much the “big news” around here. Hope you’re all having a great weekend!
