    Diploma nurse advice

    You will probably have to come on student visas and do the bridging course. The cost is around $12000 though.

    Official nurses thread!

    Hi, we are travelling end of October to Melbourne and hubby who is a nurse starts his job on the 7th November, before he starts he has to go to one of these APHRA offices and they said the registration is done straight away. So we hope so. Just wanted to find out, if hubby is in 70 000 a year, that's before any unsocial hours, how much would he bring home monthly after tax? And can we survive on his income only? We have a 2 year old son. Thanks

    Medicals - Chest X-Ray results

    No it doesn't have to be nominated specialist. Our GP made the report himself, then sent it to the panel doctor.

    Medicals - Chest X-Ray results

    Doh, poor you. As for timeline, one can't tell, it all depends on how quick you get an appointment with the specialist. I'm sure all they need is a report about their finds. And if the doctor says it's nothing to worry about, just trust him. I believe they do chest x Rays mainly for TBC reasons. We had a hiccup as well/ My hubby has high blood pressure which was discovered at his medicals. From then on he had to visit our GP every 3 weeks, trying on medication and after 2 months the GP finnaly gave him the report which was sent back to the hospital where they did our medicals and they sent it to the immigration now. Waiting for visa as we speak. Try not to worry. Just push for quick appointment.

    Mental Health Nurse in Melbourne

    Hello everyone. my hubby got a job in Melbourne in Thomas Embling Hospital. We are just waiting for a GP report since my hubby has high BP, then should be sent to the medicals and hopefully getting visa soon. Even we have a house dilemma. We can't sell, because we are in negative equity so have to find tenant. At the moment my hubby works in Forensic mental health hospital as a ward manager and there are seclusion rooms and locked doors too lol. He has to step down to band 5 though. We are hoping to be there by November.
