Default Australian and New Zealand Nursing Question

I have decided to watch the series "ANZAC Girls" as I've already enjoyed it twice before. But it raised a question about the badges worn by the nurses.

The story states at the beginning that X number of Australian nurses and some New Zealand nurses went to serve in WWI in 1915. The New Zealand nurses joining with the Australian nurses because New Zealand was not in a position to send their own detachment of nurses yet.

My question is would the New Zealand nurses that went with the Australian nurses have worn the silver Rising Sun collar size badge at their throat as the Australian nurses did? If not, did they have another badge of New Zealand origin that they wore?

Thanks in advance,
