Competence Assessment Programme(CAP)


The Wesley Institute of Learning has provided a competence assessment programme since September 2008 when the New Zealand Nursing Council gave authorisation.

We also run a Hawkes Bay branch based on a clinical site in Hastings.

The course comprises 6 weeks of training, with 10 classroom days and 20 clinical duties on private hospital sites. The programme covers:

  • Contemporary Nursing Practice

Our students are selected from a large data-base, following our enrolment criteria.

They are supported by the classroom tutor, and the clinical tutors that visit their sites twice weekly. They do extensive assessment on site including written assignments, assessing their skill at assessment, care planning, pathophysiology, reflective practice, along with leadership skills, managing a team, and key clinical skills.

Before you send any information to Wesley Institute you must apply to the Nursing Council of New Zealand for an assessment of your eligibility for registration. If you have not done this, please contact:

Nursing Council of New Zealand

Please note: An English Language assessment is required by Nursing Council of New Zealand for all overseas trained nurses (except Australia). This must be completed prior to enrolment in our course, which can be either IELTS or OET. The pass rate for IELTS must be 7.0 in each area, for OET, a B pass in each. Any cost incurred for this assessment must be met by the student.

Also: Registration is at the discretion of the Nursing Council of New Zealand and is not decided by the Wesley Training Centre.

Entry Criteria

Any person who has gained nursing registration from another country and who has been sent a letter from Nursing Council of New Zealand outlining the requirements they must meet in order to gain New Zealand registration.

As part of Wesley’s on-going efforts to streamline the intake of IQN’s from overseas, Wesley Institute has aligned the application process through to Medcall New Zealand.  Medcall will outline the process for enrolment and make the enrolment process as smooth as possible for you.  The new address is CAP@wiol.co.nz.  As a matter of course Medcall New Zealand will be your direct admin contact for information regarding entry to the Wesley CAP Course.

By completing and sending an enrolment form via Medcall to Wesley Institute does not mean acceptance on any course.
