Working in New Zealand

With 29 regions stretching more than 1,600 kilometres across two main islands, New Zealand is a fantastic place to not only travel but to build expertise as a nursing professional.

Why work in New Zealand?

Each and every destination in NZ is distinctive in character, and with the country being so compact, you can easily travel from one breath-taking location to the next. NZ is best known for its vast landscape and surreal scenery, unveiling an abundance of wineries and vineyards, glass lakes surrounded by snow-capped mountains and some of the world’s best ski and snowboard resorts.

Some of NZ’s most iconic travel destinations are within driving distance, or little more than a 45-minute flight from Auckland. Some world-famous destinations you’ve likely read about include Queenstown, Rotorua, Milford Sound, Lake Tekapo, Waiheke Island, Marlborough District and the nation’s capital city, Wellington – just to name a few. Not to mention, the east coast of Australia (Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane) is little over a 3-hour flight away.
