Jing - Registered Nurse

My Name is Jing. I am a Registered Nurse. I came to NZ on the 2nd March 2023 from Singapore. The process to come to NZ took me 7 months.

The easiest part of the process was always having support from Hannah in terms of any doubts. The most challenging part of the process was getting the documents verified with CGFNS.

ACCENT Health Recruitment helped my process to come to NZ because Hannah was a great support throughout the process that she felt like a ray of hope in my life. She gave me hope to have a change in my life and my environment. She provided me guidance from the start till the end, with my never-ending emails with questions. I am very grateful to have been in contact with Hannah. These kept me going and excited for myself that I could make a good change for myself.

My first impressions of NZ were that there were loads of space and land, and everyone was kind and friendly. What I specifically like about NZ is the kindness, friendliness, and supportive community. I like the area I live in because it is quiet and safe, and convenient from the city and work. I think the best parts of NZ are travelling. 
I definitely miss my family and friends back home the most. I do video calls or voice calls real often when anyone wants. I message my family and friends too, like the close ones almost every day.

I plan to visit the South Island. I really loved the tour that I went for in November with the Wild Kiwis Adventure tour group and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I would love to go back to cover more little towns in the different seasons and be able to experience the South in a different view.

The work/life balance made a difference to my life because I am able to pick up hobbies I always wished to learn (for me, ICE SKATING). I am able to have more time to read and organise my life and trips that I will take in the future.
Job scope wise, my current role allows me to have control over the ventilators whereby in Singapore, we have respiratory therapists. This allows me to learn more on ventilator settings and adjustment of them to aide in my patient’s recovery and this expands my professional knowledge inevitably. Things are done quite similarly which helped me to settle in easier, but it did take a while to get used to the policies and the practices here. But, slow and steady, we will get there one day!

The blessing of bedspaces after a death has been done in NZ and not in Singapore, and this brings me peace and closure on my part as a nurse for my patient.

I would like to say to leave the views and perceptions of the working culture where you have been the moment you fly, have an open mind, be receptive to learning and have fun learning in a new environment. You will be surprised how supportive the environment can be! I do hope everyone is able to experience the kindness and friendliness I have felt, and I am very grateful for the whole time I have been here!

My advice if you are planning to come to NZ is to have an open mind, heal well and have fun!

Wishing all the best to all applicants in finding peace and harmony wherever they go!
