Exclamation NZ Nursing registration...how do you get practicing certificate?

Hi there,

I am applying for my nz nursing registration. I'm a UK trained nurse living still in uk, waiting to get my nz nursing registration to then apply for a nursing job and then submit application for skilled migrant visa.

I am a bit unsure though. On the nursing jobs in nz, they stipulate candidates must have nz nursing registration and a current practising certificate. What is this certificate? How do I get one? Is this issued with my nursing registration?

Many thanks, hope you can help

Hi there

When you get your registration they will explain how to apply for your annual practicing certificate...roughly it equates to our revalidation except they do it every year. Most jobs will be happy that you have registered or are near the end of the process. You will need an APC before your start date though

Ok thanks for that info. Very helpful.

So its similar to our revalidation process in uk then?

Is there anything I need to get ready for this application for APC?
Sorry but what does it actually involve? Submitting a form online?

I believe its a card they send you? As I'm still in UK I presume they can send that to my UK address all ok?

Yes you fill it out online, no first time round you don't need anything

Did you have to send it with your visa application or did they just accept your registration certificate?

I renewed my NZ APC to get AHPRA and I had to send a notarised copy to AHPRA for registration. I think I had to attach a copy of my registration for the visa too.
