Policy Analysis and Reports

Internationally qualified Nurses: Immigration and other Issues Discussion document

This discussion document provides background and evidence to promote and inform discussion on the complex issue of nurse immigration in Aotearoa. It is largely based on NZNO staff and member feedback, research and discussion undertaken over the past decade to inform policy responses and submissions to numerous consultation and information requests from Immigration New Zealand, the Ministry of Health, and the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.
It clarifies the pivotal role of IQNs in New Zealand’s health system and highlights conflicting policies which put both IQNs and the health system at risk. It is intended to be used as a resource and reference publication to initiate discussion with members and external stakeholders, including other health professional and health sector bodies, policy and research advisers and to inform the development of sound, ethical planning for a sustainable nursing workforce.
