Frustrated New Zealand-trained migrant nurses are planning to leave the country because they cannot find an immediate path to residency, RNZ reports. It comes as the government tries to entice foreigners to fill thousands of jobs in hospitals, aged care and clinics. Nurses were controversially excluded from the government’s new straight-to-residence Green List and must instead work in the profession for two years first. “I did everything to get a good future here, whatever I save I spend it on my study. I’m separated from my kids, it’s just really heartbreaking,” one nurse said.
