Nurse in New Zealand: North Island

Nurses will see that North Island hosts most of the New Zealand population with over 3 million people living there.

The North Island is closer to the equator and has the warmer climate of the two islands with around 15,000 kilometres of coastline and more than 25 marine reserves. The East coast has tranquil bays with white and golden sandy beaches, while the Tasman Sea and the west coast are notoriously wild, with long stretches of black sand.

Volcanoes, geysers, island sanctuaries, Maori culture and history are some of the highlights of life on this island. In terms of urban centres there are two main cuties: Aukland and Wellington. The latter offers an interesting selection of arts, culture, restaurants, cafes and nightlife.
