Following are the 2017 List/Registers representing those who have completed all requirements for entry.
Currently, all new and prospective entrants to the NZ Register/List must have a veterinary nursing related qualification approved by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority. Recognition of overseas qualifications to ensure they meet minimum standards in New Zealand can be completed through Capable NZ http://capable.nz/ .
It is envisaged that a reciprocal agreement between international registers may be possible at some stage in the future, but that is still some time away and depends on establishment of criteria to ensure overseas applicants are fit to practice in New Zealand.

There is currently no additional fee required for registration if the applicant is already a member of the NZVNA. If the applicant does not wish to become a member of the NZVNA, logging of CPD hours and verification of clinical hours will incur an administrative fee of $70.
In the future, a fee for registration will be imposed to help fund the immense costs involved in establishing standards and procedures that support self-regulation of allied veterinary professionals in New Zealand. It is envisaged that a fee will be imposed from January 2018, the exact amount to be announced later in 2017.
