    Hi ian, and...

    Here is a good page to give you some idea of what you might be making:
    Salaries and Wages in New Zealand
    Here is little cost of living calculator that may help you out:
    Cost of living in New Zealand
    And finally, so you get an idea of the cost of housing:
    MarketRent - Department of Building and Housing

    Welcome to the forum

    and welcome from me, too.

    We've had a few nurses pass through our hands on the forum and one in particular is gearing up to make the move later this year so perhaps she can fill you in on some nursing issues.

    Good luck with your application (if you're in the process of making one or maybe you've already done the deed? ).

    For average wages for nurses check this out. Collective agreement To work as a nurse you will need to be registered with the New Zealand Nursing Council Registration. Registration can take up to 9 months. Mine took 4 months. Feel free to ask me any questions you want - I will try to help.
