Default suspension of international nurse registration!!!!

My other half had been working very hard to get the IELTS done and then apply for registration with the nursing council. She got her results last Thursday but International registration is now suspended until the new policy on qualifications comes out around the end of September.

Has anyone got any idea what the changes will be?

If it helps at all I have just received this from the NZNC

The Information on the website (see below) relates only to new applications for registration. It does not relate to those who have been assessed and are currently completing a competence assessment programme.

The Nursing Council will not be accepting any new applications for registration from overseas applicants (except applications under Trans Tasman Mutual Recognition Agreement {TTMR}) from 10 August 2010 until such time as any amendments to the qualifications required for those applicants have been consulted on and gazetted.

Any new applications for registration from overseas applicants that are received fall into this category. It is anticipated that any amendments to the qualifications will come into force at the end of September 2010 at which time the Council will resume accepting new applications.

This has effected me too. I rang them today, as I have been offered a job, to be told don't bother to send in my application as it will be returned in the post to me. They said they are reviewing their Rules and I would have to keep watching the website for when I should send in my forms.
Something has happened somewhere and they are probably trying to avoid scam applications.
