There are still nursing jobs for Filipino in New Zealand according to the executives of the New Zealand Nursing Council.
The assurance was made following some media reports that New Zealand is questioning the competence of Filipino nurses. There is no truth to the report, which were based on remarks made by those not connected with either the Council or the New Zealand government.
The coucil has been trying to simplify the process for qualified foreign nurses (including Filipinos) to work in New Zealand. Filipinos comprise the second largest number of foreign nurses in New Zealand, with about 200 nurses registered every year.
