Chiyiwe - Registered Nurse

My name is Chiyiwe. I am a Registered Nurse. I came to NZ on 12 August from Zimbabwe. The process to come to New Zealand took me 3 months. The easiest part was to get an interview with my now employer (don’t know how Hayley did that). The most challenging part was to get a visa.

ACCENT Health Recruitment helped me from arranging my CV to the time I arrived here in New Zealand, and beyond, because I still go back to them for advice and encouragement when I feel low. My recruiter was Hayley. Hayley was lovely from the word go to the end. Up to now she checks on me and I can shout out to her anytime. The whole team has been lovely and helpful because I have interacted with almost everyone, one time or the other.
My first impressions of New Zealand were that it is beautiful, people are lovely...they greet with their eyes and a smile. What I like about New Zealand is the water everywhere, coming from a landlocked country myself. Best parts of New Zealand must be Milford Sound.....I am still to see it. I like Rotorua for its many tourist attraction places.
I miss my children the most, I talk to them on video almost every day. I plan to visit Australia because my sister lives there and the weather is like my country.

My current role is somewhat different because now I’m practising as a nurse whereas in my Botswana, I was a midwife. I’m fascinated by how so many midwives, obstetricians, and paediatricians attend a birth, something that we are far from overseas due to shortage.

My advice if coming is relax and enjoy your last days. Work/life balance has made a real difference in my life because back home I would not afford to have the ‘luxury’ of going to places.



How do I get registered in New Zealand? How much will I get paid in New Zealand? Where is the best place to work in New Zealand? Do my children need visas for New Zealand? For answers to these questions and more, check out our FAQs page.
