    Mental Health Nurse in Melbourne

    Hi. I am a Dutch Mental Health Nurse moving to Melbourne immediatley after our house sells! I would like to know how Mental health nursing in Melbourne is, how big the wards are , do you work in uniform( In the Netherlands we don't) and lots more. Anybody? Micky
  4. Hi, I have received a form from a state hospital whom I've applied for a nursing job and they are sponsoring me on a 457 nomination. The form asks for visa details, and other personal stuff, ect. Can anyone out there give me a plan of action on how the process works, and what I should be doing first. I am now granted eligible from AHPRA, however I haven't received the job offer. Do the employers seek a nomination for me first? Should I seek health insurance now too. Unsure of this process Please respond asap Thank you
  5. Hello! My name is Beccy and I am near the end of my 2nd year training on a diploma course. Me and my partner would love to come to Australia (looking at Queensland) as soon as possible from me qualifying! However, from doing some reading around we know it might not happen! I have looked into the graduate nursing scheme, however on the queensland health website it says you can only apply once your right to work has been granted. So I would need a visa and to register with AHPRA right? On the AHPRA site it says newly qualified diploma nurses without experience are considered on a case by case basis (to do the grad scheme you arent allowed to work as an RN beforehand). So, I am not sure how to go about it? Would there be more chance of AHPRA allowing me to register if I have been offered a job somewhere? Or is there a visa I can get that wouldnt need me to be AHPRA registered, then I could apply for a job and then apply to AHPRA? I would be happy to work as an RN without doing the grad scheme, so have emailed a few hospitals, but it looks like the hardest bit is going to be to sort out registration. Any tips/pointers would be greatly appreciated! Thanks Beccy

    engineer & nurse

    my partner and i are looking to move over to perth within the next couple of years, however we are in our 40's and will be bringing one 16 year (he doen't know it yet). my partner is training to be a nurse (not sure what field this will be in) and i am a building services engineer with a degree. i have also several years PDMS (piping design managment system) expeiance in the petrochemical industry. i have looked on several sites for info on point and what we would gain with our degrees and experience but nothing is quite clear to say what point we would achieve. i would be extremely greatful if someone could advise us on what would be the best course of action or any sites you recommend for us so that when we do take the plunge to move to perth we have everything ready. many thanks the wanderer:notworthy:

    Start up costs down under

    Hey guys, I am a 24 year qualified mental health nurse and my husband and I are coming over to NSW on a 175 Skilled independent visa. Our EDA is 18 months away but preparation is the key, hence my post. Basically I have had a job offer from various units who have advised me that they will hold my job open. If I have learnt anything its not to believe all we hear but this has put my mind at ease about finding work for the move. I am due to sit the IELTS and gain my registration with the Australian nursing board and so I WILL have a job lined up in Australia for when we arrive and will be starting in the post after a couple of weeks, however we anticipate the opposite for my husband and that it may be difficult for him to find work. My question is how much money would people recommend for start up costs for the life in paradise. We dont expect to come over and buy a brand new car, brand new things for are home and we can manage without for a while as we expect to start from the basics whilst we settle in and start gaining a steady wage. We are very grounded and through research have worked out around £10,000 should be enough to place a bond and rent on a property, buy a cheap running car, bills for a couple of months and the essentials (the £10,000 does not include flights, visas, medicals ect). There is only the two of us, no children, no family We have researched this but obviously its better to get feedback from people that have been there and done it and people who are in the process as well. Does anyone think that this is not enough and if so how much would you say?? I am sure that this is a common question and anxiety but I hope that you can answer it one more time for me. Thanks so much for reading my long winded post. Laura and Mark. xx
  8. Hi guys, my family and I are really hoping to relocate to the sunshine coast at the beginning of next year. We are hoping to come over on a sponsorship through a hospital as I am a nurse (emergency/paeds experience). I am currently awaiting my registration from the AHPRA and I'm in the process of contacting hospitals for employment opportunities. However, I have been told the sunshine coast is a highly sought after area by both Australian and overseas nurses and that my chances of finding employment let alone sponsorship in this area are very slim. Are there any nurses that have recently found employment/sponsorship along the sunshine coast that could give us a glimmer of hope?! This journey is such a roller coaster isn't it! One minute I feel like it's all coming together the next I feel like we have just taken another giant step backwards! :confused:
  9. Hi, I've been offered a job as a registered nurse on the 457 Visa ( arranging my own visa) and I am currently just about to submit my form for registration to the AHRPA. I am worried after reading some of the threads on here that mention various abrieviations such as ANMC and ANMAC. i thought that i just had to register with AHRPA now as they have synthesised all the state boards. please can someone help me ? the fear about the billions of regulatory bodies with abrieviations has started to kick in. Thanks in advance for your help
  10. hi, I joined the site when I went out to OZ the first time in 2008, my family and I have 136 residency visas, but I got very home sick and found out I was 3 mths pregnant (I'd only been in OZ 4mth before returning to the UK). I didn't use PIO all that much as I felt quite shy. i now wish I did as you guys are so supportive of each other. Since returning to the UK I began my nursing degree with every intent on returning to OZ once I qualifed which is in Jan '13. i have to apply for a sponsored child visa for my now 2 year old and flights to book for Dec'12 :biggrin:!! Going in Dec '12 as that's when my 5 year residency runs out. has anyone else gone to OZ as a newly qualified nurse or hoping to go in Dec'12?
  11. Hi! I have been sent a form (finally) from my new employers, in order to get my nurse salary level confirmed. It's basically to be a list of jobs, but also asks for evidence. Now I have a few different things for different jobs. I have a headed reference for last job which states length of service. I have a letter from HR for my previous job stating time at post. For the jobs before that, (and there is many!) I have a statment fron NHS Pensions stating all my NHS working dates. Does anyone know if this evidence will be enough? Or do I need to contact lots of different HR departments? (not something I want to start doing a week before my flight :sad:). Even more confusingly I have a stat dec that was signed in Australia for my first five years experience, will I be able to use this as well? Not sure some of my previous health boards even exist! I was a baby when I graduated, so its been 18 years! :biglaugh: Thanks for any advice Gill x
  12. Hello, I applied for a job at the Royal Adelaide Hospital last week, and have been called for an interview. they have agreed to do this by phone as i do not arrive until August. Has anyone had a phone interview, how was it, and has anyone got any idea what kind of questions they ask in Oz nursing interviews? I imagine there will always be 'tell me about yourelf' one, but are there other subjects they always try to cover? Will I be expected to know anything about nursing in Oz? Thanks, wee bit nervous/ excited! Gill x
  13. My wife is a UK registered nurse; however trained in India and we have sent the application to AHPRA in the last month and received below letter from case office asking for additional documents. They have received now NMC verification and we managed to arrange for the evidence of adapataion competion (from NHS trust where completed adaptation) and also 'Pharmacology' unit (my school of nursing is sending me a letter confirming this). Only an issue is with my nursing council in India. I dispatched documents to India and my relative went to nursing council in India with verification form. But they refused to accept the application saying my registration with them was lasped in 2007 (that's true becoz I haven't renewed it after 2007 as I am here in UK since 2004). So if I want to verify and I need to renew it first and for that I need to be present in there office to prove that I am still exist. They have mentioned in the below email "A Certificate of Registration Status or Good Standing / Verification directly from Maharashtra Nursing Council INDIA" so they just want a letter from Indian nursing council confirming i have registered with them from 15 July 94 (first registeration date) to 30 March 2007 (registration renewed upto). But Indian Nursing council is not ready until my wife first do the renewal. We dont mind renewing it but don't know how much time it will take to first renew and then to send verifiaction. Would appreciate advice on this verificaion issue.

  14. Hi, Myself, my partner and our 1 year old son are looking to relocate to queensland next year. I am currently in early stages of applying for permanent residency for queensland and am completing the skills assessment. I am a clinical nurse specialist in substance misuse and was looking for similar roles in the same field but unfortunately I am not finding many, if any in Queensland. Does Queensland offer many job opportunities for drug and alcohol nurses? Should I be looking at other states? Please can someone help or point me in the right direction as I am worried I may not be able to find a job. Thanks

    Nurse Emigration Rules/Regs???

    Hi My name is Paul and my Wife (Claire) is training as a nurse in the U.K. We are looking to emigrate to Oz when she completes her training with the NHS. We understand Nurses are in short supply but would she need some experience before applying for a Visa or would the three years of training count as experience? Any info on this would be great, as there is alot of conflicting advice on this subject online. Regards Paul :eek:

    Student nurse here

    Hi everyone I'm totally new to this website, and it's fantastic.I'm a second year adult student nurse, and planning once i qualify to up and move to perth with my husband and two little men. I won't qualify as a skilled migrant (don't think so) and i would like to come over as a graduate (so no experience). what visa would be best for me?... My husband is a police officer for the MET but this isn't on the SOL list so it would be my profession we would be coming over on. The funny thing is i was a community worker before, have 12 years experience, have an NVQ2 and 3 in health and social care...which does qualify...but i will be practising as a nurse.. Are there any graduate programmes offered to overseas newly qualified nurses, or is it best to get some experience first?..I'm desperate to move over to Oz as soon as i qualify really, but if i have no choice :confused:...waiting is what i will have to do. eager to start planning ahead lol xxx anyhooo i would like to thank anyone for any advice...it's all sooooo confusing Kind Regards Simone xxx

    Nurse Graduate Program 2012

    Hi, I'm a student nurse going to graduate in the uk in September, I'm going to apply for the nurse gradate program in NSW. I was wondering if anyone has done this before on here, the interviews are on while I'm on my last placement do you need to go to Sydney to have the interview. I was wondering if anyone has had the same problem? Any help would be great! x
  19. Hi, This is my first time posting on here so I'm hoping it actually works! My family and I are currently in the early stages of doing the 'big move!' I am a senior paediatric nurse in an Emergency Department in the South of England and am hoping to continue in this career path in OZ. Our first choice to settle was Queensland, Brisbane or Sunshine Coast areas. I have sent my CV and cover letter to several children's hospitals including Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne to see whether I would even get any interest! So far I have heard back from Sydney and have been offered a telephone interview!!! I am really unsure as to what they might ask me, apparently I will be speaking to 3 nurse managers throughout the hospital including the ED manager! Any suggestions on how I can best prepare for this would be very much appreciated! I have never had a telephone interview before and am really not looking forward to it!! I'm also unsure whether to accept a job offer (if I actually get offered one!) because I have always had my heart set on Queensland, due to being cheaper cost of living, climate, beaches etc. Im also hoping for a sponsorship from the hospital and I know we will have to pay education fees for our 5 year old if we go to NSW!! I have heard rumours that Queensland has put a bit of a freeze on overseas recruitment and especially on sponsorships??? Decisions, decsisions!! Any advice would be very much appreciated!! Thanks x
  20. Got a job offer in Tasmania!! I had a telephone interview last week and today an email to say I have got it. Still waiting for AHPRA for registration, and judging by previous posts I will still be waiting a few more months, but for now that bottle of sparkling wine in the fridge has got my name on it:biggrin:

    new to this!

    :confused::unsure:Hello fellow minded people! I joined the forum earlier this year but have been really slow in getting on with using it (I put my first post on yesterday!) My hubbie and I hope to move to Brisbane next year, but have found ouselves struggling with the process, which seems confusing at best! We were hoping to go on a relative sponsored 176 (I'm a qualified nurse working in health & social care management) but with the changes due to happen in a couple of weeks it looks like our options will be limited to work sponsored instead. I have my in principle letter from AHPRA, but have yet to have a skills assessment by ANMAC , because I haven't had an IELTS yet......................Also AHPRA won't share their file on me with the ANMAC even tho apparently it works ok the other way around! Any advice would be greatly appriciated. I gather there is no value in putting forward a visa application before 1st July without these other approvals in place, as they won't accept an incomplete application and we would lose the visa fee. Does anyone know if this is right? Any sound advice would be helpful. Thanks, Jan
  23. Hi myself and my wife are nurses in the UK at the moment who want to move to oz and was wondering how i can go about finding an employer over there to sponsor our visa is there any nurse employment websites i can apply to as i cant seem to find any and i know it can be done. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  24. I really could do with somebody's assistance or knowledge of RMN posts that are available in preferably Perth WA. A little bit of info about myself: I am making a general enquiry about any possible Registered Mental Health Nursing vacancies available in Perth. I am very keen to relocate to Australia from the UK and would consider moving as soon as an available job offer is made. I am 28 year old, single male, clean bill of health, full UK driving Licence and no criminal convictions. My work experience consists of the last 10years working in a High Secure Forensic Mental Health Hospital in the NHS, one of three High Security Hospitals in England. The last five of which has been as a Registered Mental Health Nurse. For the last two years I have also worked for an outside agency working in a variety of mental health settings including acute wards, low secure units, rehab units and ICU’s. If there are any opportunity’s that you may feel might be of interest to me I’d be grateful if you could PM me please. Thank you.
  25. Hello, I am new to this so would appreciate any advice which might help me with my visa application. Earlier this year I looked at the 176 application and followed a link which took me to the AHPRA requirements for registration in Oz so I submitted my application to them, and now have my in principle letter (as of yesterday). Having looked again at the 176 I now realise that I need the skills assessment by the ANMAC before a visa will be granted. My AHPRA application was supported by a letter from my school and the training program for my nursing qualification, all undertaken in English in the UK, and therefore I did not do an IELTS test. If I now need to do this I am unsure which is the right one to satisfy the ANMAC. I had intended to submit my visa application before the end of June, but am worried that this will be a waste of time and money if I don't have the completed IELTS and skills assessments, which cannot be achieved by then. Can anyone advise me whether submitting the 176 relative sponsored visa application without these missing bits will still be worthwhile, bearing in mind the visa changes which are due to take place on 1st July? Many thanks
