Competence Assessment Programme for overseas nurses. Six week fulltime course based in Auckland or Hawke’s Bay.


Welcome to the Wesley Institute of Nursing Education webpage. We are an approved provider of the competence assessment programme for registered and enrolled nurses, both overseas and New Zealand trained.

We have two schools, one in central Auckland and the other in Hawke’s Bay, providing 12 classes per year.

We have provided everything on this site to assist you in making an enrolment, and this can be scanned directly through to our approved nursing recruitment agency, Medcall.

We take enrolments at any time throughout the year, and the selection into classes is made through the enrolments. We have provided a calendar on this site for our academic year.

 Applicants are chosen for the courses based on their English results and their length of clinical experience.


  • “The Cap programme not only gives students the opportunity to work within our Hospital clinical setting but also, encourages our staff to extend themselves with the preceptor programme. This way, both the facility staff and the CAP students can add to the wide dimension of learning, tapping into all staff on site through this great programme offered by Wesley Institute of Learning”
