Success Stories

Lucas Kleijn – Doctor

By | Medicine, Success Stories | No Comments

Dr Lucas Kleijn moved to New Zealand from the Netherlands in July to work for a year at the North Shore Hospital, Auckland. A consultant orthopaedic surgeon since 2005, he decided to take a sabbatical and apply for a fellowship in New Zealand, to dig a little deeper into a specific subspecialty.

However, there were several hurdles to overcome before taking up his post at North Shore.

As part of the registration process with the Medical Council of New Zealand and to get a contract to work at North Shore Hospital, Lucas needed to pass a test to prove his English language proficiency.

He says: “OET was ideal for me because the content is related to my occupation, and after passing the test, I was able to obtain medical registration, get a work contract, and then a working visa”.

Lucas and his wife also chose to spend a year in New Zealand for their three children.

“We thought it would be good for them to see more of the world and to learn English. New Zealand has a lot to offer: beautiful nature and lots of space. We all all like the outdoors very much,” he says.

“And, we’re really enjoying the experience,” he continues. “I’m learning a lot, my work atmosphere is really friendly and the standards are high. Spare time with the family is great too.”

From 11 October 2016, Immigration New Zealand will accept OET as proof of English proficiency for most visa categories. International healthcare professionals can now use OET results as proof of English proficiency for their visa application and healthcare registration in both New Zealand and Australia.

Ma-Annjit qualified as a nurse in the Philippines, graduating from Our Lady of Fatima University (OLFU). With four years of postgraduate clinical nursing experience under her belt, she migrated to Australia with the aim gaining registration as a nurse.

Ma-Annjit took the OET test before enrolling in a bridging program, the Initial Registration for Overseas Nurses course, and says what she learnt through OET made the course much easier.

“The scenarios used in the OET test gave me a glimpse into different ways of communicating so I knew what to expect. For example, documents are written in a different way in the Philippines,” she said.

On graduation from the bridging course, Ma-Annjit gained her Australian nursing registration with the help of her OET test results. The Nursing and Midwifery Council of Australia accepts a minimum of 4 B’s in all subtests as proof of English proficiency to register and work as a nurse in Australia.

“I’m working as an agency nurse until I get permanent residency and I’m very confident that the way I’m communicating is correct. OET gave us scenarios that we really do use and it made the transition to working in Australia much easier.”

Since English is my second language, OET prepared me for the real world. As a nurse, communication is very important. It has made my life easier since I am now eligible for registration. It has given me the confidence to communicate with my patients and colleagues. It made me very proud of myself and raised my self esteem. All the preparation and sacrifices I made to pass the OET paid off and I am very happy for choosing OET.
