  1. Hiii, I am a BAND 5 nurse in the UK and have been a nurse for 15 months, I have started applying for jobs in Brisbane as I now have my registration to practice nursing in Australia (finally!!!) and just wanted to check what grade I am in Oz if I am Band 5 in the UK. I'm worried i'm looking at the wrong jobs so any info would be appreciated. Thanks, Kirst xx

    Job searching in Oz for nursing... what Grade am I?

    Hi there, Sadly your reg takes way longer than you will expect. Mine took 11 months and I've seen lately that I was one of the quick ones. You need all your certificates from school including evidence that you went to an English school for so many years. I had to get my high school which I haven't been to in 6 years to send me written confirmation that I attending their school for so many years and can speak English (I have never lived anywhere but England my whole life) but still had to show evidence. I definitely would not move until this reg is sorted as it is a lot harder to pass not originally though. Now that I have passed for 100% I'm not getting my Visa and flight tickets. It's really hard work and stressful but worth it, but they will want all the evidence of your qualification from the age of GCSE'S and A LEVELS. Hope this helps, good luck

    Houses & Flats In Brisbane.

    Heeeey. I am moving to Brisbane in January and have been looking for somewhere to live with people similar to my age. My ideal accommodation would be like student living but obviously I am not a student anymore (I'm 23). I want to live with a group of Australians around the center of Brisbane area (or roughly around there) so I signed up for different flat sharing websites but all I seem to get it creepy replies and one bedroom flats which I would find so boring. Can anyone help? Thaaanks :notworthy: Kirst xx

    Official nurses thread!

    Hiii Jo. I'm Kirst, I'm from Cumbria also and I have just been granted my registration in Brisbane. How is yours going? It's absolutely awful getting though the process, mine took 11 months to complete because it seems nothing was right for them. Do you need any help/advise? All i'll say right now is do not give up, it's all here to test you!!! It will be worth it. I'm looking for jobs now and I can't wait to leave this wet cold county!! haha

    Job searching in Oz for nursing... what Grade am I?

    Ohhh good that makes more sense, I was getting worried because they didn't use the word "Division" at all in any of my job searches for Brisbane. So i'm a Grade 5 in Queensland as I have been a nurse since May 2011!!

    That's really helpful thank you! So when I'm searching on the "Work for us" option on the Queensland Government health website and it says "Grade 5" is that for my benefit in the UK then? It's "divisions" in Australia?
