Nursing in New Zealand is a popular option for those seeking a great work environment in a country of striking natural beauty. The land of the long white cloud, as it is affectionately known, runs a public health system with private operators offering a wide range of treatment choices to the population. It is efficient, well run, and offers low patient to staff ratios.
New Zealand has a population of 4 million people spread across the entire country. No matter where you are, you will be no more than 1 hour from the coast. New Zealand is home to rainforests, stunning Mountains, beautiful beaches, fiords, and much more. Many New Zealanders enjoy a relaxed lifestyle with lots of time spent in the outdoors. Depending on the season you could be surfing, skiing, hiking or taking part in any of the extreme (and not so extreme!) sports that New Zealand is known for. It is family friendly and the work-life balance is great.
