I was talking to a couple of overseas-trained theatre nurses the other day. Both had had to undergo a month-long course in “cultural safety/ Treaty implications etc” before they could get their NZ nursing registration, all at a cool cost of over $11,000 each! Followed by an exam on the topic. Needless to say they never once got examined on their clinical nursing competence!!
We might get more nurses wanting to come and work here if we didn’t charge them $11,000 for cultural safety training!
