List of CAP schools and Recommendations

 

You can download this is WORD or (.doc) format in the Nursing Council website at http://www.nursingcouncil.org.nz/.

My Recommendations based on my infos a year ago…

But as a general rule, the three things to look for when choosing your CAP school are:

  1. Availability 
  2. Money
  3. Time
  4. Other factors

Availability – when’s the earliest slot that is available? Grab it.

Money – some places cost more than the others.

– The cheapest one from when I inquired a year ago was EIT at Napier. If you pass their requirements, and they have a slot, enroll with them.

Time – how many weeks does the CAP course run? This is again related to money, as studying for more weeks would require you to spend more of course for food, accommodation, etc

Other Factors – This depends on your personal situations, also school locations etc.

TIPS:

Based on my experiences a year ago… 

  1. EIT – is the cheapest based on my research a year ago. Only they ask for a lot of medical requirements. IELTS also need to be taken in one sitting only.
  2. Otago Polytechnic – where I studied, replied the fastest. It gave me the earliest slot. It’s also in Dunedin in the South Island if it matters to you.
  3. Waiariki – My friend studied here and I heard transport in Rotorua is FREE if you’re a student.

The schools are based on my experience/heard from friends. So if you know a better one,  or have been to a better one, please feel free to comment and I will add it in my updates.
