Default Midwife needing help from other Midwives

Hi everyone,

I am currently waiting for my Visa. They are in the middle of processing my application and are asking for my APC. I do not yet have an APC as I won't be practising within the current year (2012/2013), my start date is the 6th May. I cannot yet apply for a 2013/2014 APC as this is not yet available from Midwifery Council.

Do any of you recall whether or not you had to provide your APC? They have my registration certificate and job offer. I just don't think that my IO understands the system.

I am an RN but had to provide a valid APC even though it expired before my contract started. As far as I am aware you have to have a valid APC regardless of whether you are actually practising or not.

How did
you go on with recertifying without having practised?

Explained that I was overseas, my contract start date and my arrival date in the country. It's quite a common problem for us immigrating health professionals and NCNZ are used to it!

Yep I needed my APC for my application too, think I got mine in the February and didn't actually move over and start work until August.

They're pretty used to supplying APC's to midwives who aren't in the country and working yet so its not a problem.
