I feel that these nurses should have done research before coming to NZ, there are so many new Zealand graduates like my daughter a NZ born who need jobs here in NZ and are reapped of jobs by nurses like the ones protesting. Some of those immigrants hardly speak good english, why dont the New Zealand health sector give the available jobs to NZ graduates likes my daughter who has been looking for a job for the last 5 months with no opportunity given due to her lack of experience, wake up NZ!!!!!!

How anyone on earth will understand the so called patient safety, when two individuals who has completed same education both in schooling and nursing i.e. everything same in terms of qualifications, training and work experience, one get registration and other denied registration at the racial mentality of some case officer. When developed countries like NZ wants to make money, they take applications and fees from these overseas nurses and once the money is taken from large number of nurses, if they change the criteria, they should have at least refund money. What on earth prohibited NZ nursing council not to accept an application that they thought may cause harm to patient safety. How these diploma nurses having 3.5 years full time study in nursing and has thousands of hours work experiences is practising in all most all developed countries. When these students apply for visa, it is your own government office issue visa. Why do you do that. It is a huge revenue for your government. If all Indian trained nurses working in NZ support these striking nurse, NZ should be aware that your health care system, your patient safety will be a big comedy.

I really empathize with the Indian nurses. Lessen to internationally trained nurses:
1) Don't be fooled by the empty promises and glamorous advertisement of foreign recruiters;
2) Do your own research, call, seek...
3) Every country has a regulatory body that governs nursing practice.
