New Zealand's nursing workforce is becoming increasingly multicultural as foreign nurses make up an essential part of the New Zealand health workforce. The ongoing COVID‐19 pandemic has highlighted the contributions that nurses have made in providing front‐line services to the public. However, little has been documented about challenges and experiences of this minority ethnic group—Chinese nurses—who have been working as registered nurses in New Zealand during the COVID‐19 pandemic.This study aimed to investigate the experiences and challenges of New Zealand registered nurses of Chinese ethnicity who have been working during the COVID‐19 pandemic.The result showed that 47.06% participants (n = 24) reported negative experiences including racial discrimination, workplace bullying and judgement, while 52.94% (n = 27) participants reported positive working experiences including supports received in the workplace and positive recognition by the pubic in New Zealand.
