    I am one of the 3 nurses who arrived in New Zealand on May 2005. I for one had to loan a huge amount of money with the help of my agency. We were lucky enough that time since we already passed the IELTS and we have an employer before we arrived here . The employer paid for our school fee worth $3,000+ and provided a huge 3-bedroom house...good point: walking distance to the mall and the hospital is just at the back of our house. We finished the program on July and waited for a couple of months to be able to work.

    It was not an easy process but we were able to survive...

    On the other hand, I appreciate the writer of the note below....this is a long informative note that is worth sharing....

    EXCERPT from the NOTE below:
    "Our batch came over to study CAP on September 2007, and most of us

    Christchurch, New Zealand EARTHQUAKE and the study english for nursing registration SCAM. Please EXPOSE

    by Victoria Denise Gomez Perez on Friday, February 25, 2011 at 1:12pm

    Wrote this note right after a late shift, a few hours after the death tolls from the recent earthquake had jumped up... I have sent it to ABS-CBN, GMA, inquirer, and some press people in Philippines in hopes that the scam will be exposed.

    I had been so upset to find out that some of those confirmed dead in CHC are Filipino nurses who have been incorrectly led to believe that by studying IELTS in NZ will make it easier for them to find a nursing job in new zealand, when even NZ citizens who are graduates of NZ schools are having trouble finding placement. Woe to the agencies who brought them here to earn a quick buck--- the blood of those who perished in the bldg are in your hands.

    Please pass the word of the scam along to nurses or family of nurses that you know.
    We need to let them know the real deal. Hope is only good when it is not given falsely in preference of one's own gain. Let's educate people so less nurses will be victimized.

    The call for expose is written below, please, if you care for your Filipino nurses, pass it along for others to read. Thanks for your help.


    I am a Filipina nurse working in Hamilton (a city in the north island
    not hit by the earthquake- thank God)
    Myself and the rest of the Filipino community feel upset about the
    tragedy in Christchurch, and it hits close to home as some of us know
    the people involved and are also Filipino nurses who came here with
    hopes of a better life.

    I don't know exactly how to impart my thoughts, but I feel that the
    media should be involved in exposing the english for nursing
    registration scams that a lot of our nurses are falling prey on.
    Yes, it is sickening to know that these scams are around, and that it
    may well be fellow Filipinos looking for a quick buck who are behind
    them... and yes, they have to be exposed.

    Those Filipino nurses studying english in the fallen CTV bldg would
    have not been there in the first place have these scams not been

    I have heard personal stories from nurses who have failed to pass
    their IELTS who come here to study english to take IELTS in hopes of
    getting a registration, a job offer, and an approval from immigration
    to stay.
    They have been promised that as they have contacts with a local NZ
    recruitment agency and "by operating as a temporary employment agency,
    is able to employ you in part time work while you are studying, as
    well as in full time work as a registered nurse once you have met the
    Nursing Council of New Zealand requirements. Employment is usually in
    aged care facilities."

    the statement gives the nurses in the Philippines who only want to
    give their family a better future despite having to leave their love
    ones behind (and probably having to loan a huge amount of money) that
    meeting the Nursing Council requirements is a fast-track.
    I have to say this is not so...

    I believe that some agencies also try to attract their preys by saying
    that they can work part-time. part-time means 20hrs a week if you can
    find it (mahirap maghanap ng jobs here now-even locals are having
    problems)... and 20hrs a week of minimum wage. 12nzd/hr equates to
    about 240nzd/week before taxes. Yes, that may be about what a nurse
    would earn in Philippines a month for 20hrs worth of work. But they
    never really show the real numbers. 5000-9000nzd for the tuition, an
    unfurnished room to rent in NZ on a average is 150nzd/week, lunch at
    the cafeteria is 6-15nzd/meal, what about other expenses? plus most of
    the jobs they offer are back breaking care-giver work in a resthome.
    And then at the end, they fail the IELTS anyway, and have to go back
    home. or pass the IELTS and have no funds to process their papers,
    much more to take the nursing bridging course program (another 5000nzd
    for the course).

    I still don't get my head around how the scammers talked these
    knowledgeable professionals into spending over half a million pesos to
    go overseas to prepare for an exam that will cost 5,000-10,000pesos in
    the Philippines

    I have met Filipinas who are doing the course now, and even with the
    20hrs/week, they have to depend on charity from fellow Filipinos for
    shelter (as noted rent is 150nzd/wk on average) so they can save even
    a little bit to pay back the loans they have taken in Philippines so
    they can come over. They by the way, are on their way back to
    Philippines soon as they know the real deal now. :/
    I have asked them if they have complained in the agencies website to
    warn the others, and they said that the websites of the agencies they
    have been through are usually unavailable by the time they realize
    that they have been fooled, so they don't really know who to complain

    In the few years that I have worked here, I have met so many nurses
    who are here as care-givers even... these are nurses who have far
    more experience and knowledge than myself multiplied by 3. They came
    to study to become care-givers and then work as one only because they
    did not meet the IELTS criteria... they came hoping to earn enough to
    pay the loan they took in PH and take the IELTS so they can process be
    nurses too. Most of them have been here working for years now, and
    still have not managed to make it as registered nurses. Worse, I have
    known of Filipino care-givers whose work visa and permit were refused
    to be renewed by the immigration because of the shortage of jobs in NZ
    and they are prioritizing the locals vacancy-wise and they had no
    choice but to go back home.
    My point is, it is not as easy as what the scammers make it. Besides,
    for an NZ local, they don't even need to finish any schooling or even
    formal training to become care-givers here (which is a pain really,
    not to mention unsafe).

    The next paragraph may be boring to you, but i'll let you in on the
    process we took to get a job as nurses.
    I, and my fellow Filipino nurses at work, had taken our IELTS in the
    And even having done so there, had taken us a good few months to get
    things sorted with the Nursing Council of NZ to take the nurse
    bridging program (also known as Competency Assessment Program for
    Foreign Nurses or CAP).
    To take the CAP you have to be able to enroll in a NZ nursing school
    that offers the 6-8week course, and that spells more money. After the
    CAP, and you get your registration (and contrary to what some people
    in Philippines think, if you are a graduate of CAP - no, you don't
    need to take the NZ nurses exam).
    The registration will take approximately 4 weeks. If you don't meet
    their criteria, i.e. number of nursing hours worked, you may not even
    be given registration after all you troubles.
    Post-registration, you still need to find a job offer to have the NZ
    immigration give u a work visa and permit to stay and work legally
    (and honestly, even NZ local graduates are hard pressed to find jobs
    in NZ now). and processing the work permit will take time too.

    Our batch came over to study CAP on September 2007, and most of us
    only got to start work on January of 2008. That's months of spending
    pesos in NZ, most of us had to take a loan from families who are also

    between IELTS
    -NZQA (these are the people who assess your academic qualifications in NZ)
    -Nursing Council approval to take CAP
    -registration with Nursing Council
    -job hunting to get a job offer so you can apply to work visa/permit
    -processing paperwork with NZ immigration
    and actually working as a nurse and getting the nurse rate (which is
    twice that of a caregiver)... it's a long process.
    It is not as quick and easy as some of the agency scammers make it.

    there will be a lot of forums online where u can find conversations
    about the scams.
    some are:

    Myself and my Filipino nurse friends here hope that you will EXPOSE
    this so we can prevent more Filipino nurses victimized into taking
    what I now call "a very long and hope-depreciating vacation that most
    of them can't afford".

    Personally, I am infuriated because our fellow countrymen who perished
    in Christchurch who are in that language school would NOT have been
    there in the first place have they not been scammed. They are Filipino
    nurses who, if given the right information and pointed to the right
    avenues, would have been working in the hospitals right now helping
    out those that are injured by the quake...instead of being part of the
    rubble being unearthed.

    I believe that I speak for most of Filipinos in NZ when I write that,
    we feel for the loved ones of those who were directly affected by the
    earthquake, especially those who are in the Philippines. If you have
    contacts to their families, please let them know that the Filipinos
    here are organizing what resources they have spare to help in
    whichever way we all could, and that we are praying for them too.

    For those in want of a job in NZ or anywhere in the world, we implore
    you to go through the foreign country's government agencies or even
    the foreign country's school advisors as usually give advise for free
    online. At least, read the experiences of others who have gone through
    it and not be swayed by promises of easy process etc. Lastly,
    RESEARCH--- if you find that it seems too good to be true, it probably

    VERY VERY VERY Wrong information ng mo-adto mo sa "honarary" canadian consul diha sa guadalupe.

    Wagtang akong 800K tungod anang animal nga ROBERT LEE!

    Kay ngano? Kaw nangayo lagi ko ug tambag sa animal kung ok ra ba magpakasal ko daan diri before mag landing sa canada ug ni-ingon gyud dayon ang panuway nga OK RA KAAYO KAY NANA MAN IMONG VISA UNSA MAN LABOT ANA NILA MAGPAKASAL KA?

    to-o pud ta kay "consul" lagi.

    Long story short, 6 of us were deported back because I changed my status from single to married.

    Then the devil consul just said when I went to him, "I was told from the consul in Manila not to give advise on immigration matters...." something like that. Pakita pa niya ang email sa consul sa manila.

    So yeah, may he and his family die a slow and painful death wala man lang nangayo pasaylo ang animal Christiano man unta!

    Ergo, NEVER ASK the feeling consul or any other consuls for that matter regarding IMMIGRATION ADVISE. lahi na sila ug mandate.
