Nursing Council of NZ - Consultation on proposal to increase fees for Internationally Qualified and Trans-Tasman Mutual Recognition Arrangement Nurse applications

The Council has recently undertaken a review of the processing costs relating to applications received from Internationally Qualified Nurses (IQNs) and those received from applicants under the Trans-Tasman Mutual Recognition Arrangement (TTMR) to ensure that the Council is accurately covering related costs.

The review was initiated to establish actual costs of services and to provide the Council with information on which to support the long term financial viability of the Council.

The Council wants to be sure that the costs for the registration of IQN and TTMR applications are assumed by the applicant and that cross subsidisation through the use of the already registered nurses APC fee does not occur and are proposing to increase fees by $165 for IQN and $45 for TTMR applications.

We look forward to receiving your comments.

Feedback Due: Please forward your comments to Jill Clendon at by 13 February 2015 NZNO will collate these and submit to Nursing Council.
