Nursing Council of New Zealand Now Requires Tougher English Scores

The Nursing Council of New Zealand recently made changes in their English language requirements.

All foreign nurses seeking employment in New Zealand even those from English-speaking countries like Britain and the United States are now required to pass a tougher English language assessment with the exception of applicants from Australia.

Under the new rule which took effect January 1, 2009, all foreign-educated nurse applicants, including Filipinos, must achieve a score of at least 7.0 in each band of the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) to qualify.
