Hi there and welcome to the forum . That sounds like an exciting move.

So many questions about New Zealand, so I'll see if I can shift your thread to the NZ forum for folks to help with your queries. I'm sure you'll get some answers. All the best with the move

What nationality are you, and have you ever taken tertiary (university) courses that were delivered in English? I'm just wondering why you need IETLS?

I believe that all nurses need IELTS regardless of nationality.

Shocked - is it just nurses? My OH works as a healthcare professional - not a nurse - no test required. Seems a little odd to single nurses out if its them alone...

You will defo need to revise big time for the IELTS. Many Brits take 3 - 4 times before they pass. Apparently Brits come way down on the list of passes, probably cos we are Brit we assume we know our own language. But in reality we have many local dialects / slang & our grammar isn't really up to scratch. Good luck
