Can a US registered nurse work in New Zealand?

So, I know nurses are in demand right now, but idea ideas if they would hire someone from the US that has been not working as an RN for the past 7 years? Just curious…:hugs:

I’d recommend check out - ACCENT are experienced medical recruiters and based in New Zealand.

The nz n nursing council will require you to be actively practising for at least two years in the last 5 years.
“e. two years’ post-registration nursing practice as a registered nurse with at least 2,500 hours within the five years immediately preceding the date of the application”
I know nurses who couldn’t get registration because they stop practising >5 years.

New Zealand offers unique opportunities for registered nurses to practice in a diverse range of nursing practice areas, in a variety of settings.

You can also work as a nurse manager, in nurse education, as a nurse researcher or as a nurse practitioner.
