I would give Immigration a call as Hep B is in the Ops Manual https://www.immigration.govt.nz/opsmanual/42611.htm as,
A4.10.1 Medical conditions deemed to impose significant costs and/or demands on New Zealand's health and/or education services

One year should be ok, did you have a previous x ray cos they last for 3 years?

"If you will stay in New Zealand for less than 12 months, you normally do not need to have a medical examination unless the visa you apply for will allow you to stay for more than 12 months, or we ask you to have one."

I assume that as you are working in a health care role your organisation knows you have this condition?
Edit: in the UK health care workers are tested for Hepatitis B and if found to be infectious are quite correctly excluded from certain roles where there is a risk that they might infect a patient.
This implies you can test positive for Hep B but not classed as an infection risk.
So regardless of visa it looks as though you shoul be tested anyway before taking on your proposed role.

Yes! I’m working in a health care field, but i am being cautious in what i do, specially when it comes to contact with patients.

i’ll have my self test again and further assessments so that i do have evidences that i am not actively infectious to everyone. And hope people and this country will not discriminate people having this disease

It's not a case of discrimination - it IS a case of medical safety As said, health workers found to be infectious are not allowed certain roles where there is a risk of infecting patients.

I assume any ongoing visa would be dependent on you being able to secure job as well.

Certainly any healthcare provider in NZ that has any kind of health and safety standards to uphold would do pre-employment screening, so you can't expect this to be swept under the carpet. Lord help us but I don't doubt that there would be some elderly care facilities, rest homes and the likes that couldn't really give a rats arse.

Nobody here will know, you need to be honest and upfront and should be talking with people at potential work placements, tutors and immigration about your long term propositions. They no doubt will have come up against this before and can advise the way forward for you.
