I found this site and it looks like a pool of knowledge! So I was hoping you could help me! I'm doing an Adult Nursing Diploma of Higher education at the university of surrey I am just about to finish my second year and I have a partner and a little boy who is 14 months. We want to move to Western Oz as some of my family live there and we ideally want to move as soon as I qualify (no pressure! lol) Anyway.... I have not been able to find any really conclusive evidence as to whether my diploma entitles me to practice as a registered nurse in Oz? I read something about enrolled nurses having diplomas and registered nurses needing degrees. So would my diploma only entitle me to work as enrolled nurse rather than a registered nurse? Also I read something about graduate programs in Western Oz and wondered upon qualifying whether I could apply for one of these? I read that lots of students particularly from the UK do this, or would I need to work for say a year after qualifying and then apply for residency in Australia? Any experience or advice would be great!!!
