  1. I know ultimately it will come down to myself to make this decision but need some more educated opinions I think to try and make my decision. Basically I'm a 24 year old Irish university degree trained General nurse. I've just about a year of experience and my plan had always been learn to drive (pay off my car, which is hopefully just about another year) and then go to Australia for a working holiday visa where I could get a feel for nursing there and work agency or whatever (or that was the dream plan anyway) However the hospital I'm currently working for has now offered up funding to do post graduate diplomas and certificates in my area of nursing (respiratory). The courses would begin in sept 2017 (length six months to a year) and because the hospital are funding it I would then be obliged to work for the hospital for a year post completion. So that#s thrown a spanner in the works. I'm tempted because this is obviously a very big opportunity. But by the time I have completed it I would be probably just about too old for a WHV, so would have to rethink plans all together. Especially while the 457 visa is a bit up in the air. My question is really would these postgraduates stand by me in Australia and would if be easier to find a job and such. Or would it really make no difference. I don't have any intentions to specialise at the minute and would like to continue working in a general medical setting. I would possibly still get funding after I come back from Australia, if I come back at all. But it's unknown year to year if funding will be there or not for these courses. I know it comes down to my decision ultimately but, having some outsiders opinions may give me some further food for thought

    Reference refusal

    Hi guys, I hope someone could advise me. ive worked in Oz for 7 years as a nurse. Now applying for residency but some of my employers are refusing to provide me with a personal performance reference and only a statement of service as I've not worked for that organisation for over twelve months. This is hindering my application due to no fault of my own and may possibly prevent me from obtaining residency.. Anyone experienced this. Thanks
  3. Dear Readers, I have recently been diagnosed with Macular Degeneration ( 48 yr old). I am hoping to emigrate to Oz on Employer Nominated Direct Entry Stream. Do I need to be concerned about my Macular Degeneration ? My eyesight is excellent?

    Nursing Skills Assessment

    Hi Everyone, Information for anyone considering submitting their nursing skills assessment. I am a 8 years qualified registered nurse (adult) currently working in a a walk in centre. Previously I was a research nurse for a university and before that a ward and out-patient based staff nurse. I submitted my skills assessment which covered the last 4 years. I had to include a statement of service with exact dates for my last 2 positions and a comprehensive breakdown of my duties (which was more or less a copy of my job description). I also had to provide a detailed professional reference from my current employer. Plus $650! My agent submitted it on 19th March 2009. I was a little worried in case the research or the walk in centre work wouldn't be suitable enough for them, but it was successfully approved on 11th May 2009. A total of 7 and a half weeks.
  5. Hi, I've started to complete the AHPRA form to be registered nurse. I'm completely confused as to what evidence I need to provide them? Regarding my education? Should I complete the IElTS? I'd be gratefully for any help Thanks

    Community nursing in Sydney area

    Hi Is anyone on here involved in community nursing in the greater Sydney area (or any area). - we don't know where we'll live yet, but have been lookingat the northern beaches. We are moving over there in 2nd quarter of 2015, and want to know as much as possible about this. Any info/links massively appreciated @robley Cheers Matthew
  7. Hi everyone, I'm new to the site so I hope I'm posting this in the right place. I handed in my AHPRA application in Sydney on 17/02/14. The lady I gave it to told me to check the website as the verification of qualifications process had changed two weeks prior. When I looked I felt sick seeing that they had changed the requirement to degree level. I called and explained that although I have a diploma, I have 10 years experience. I was told that they would consider the application but looking at the site it seems pretty clear that this is not the case. I just wondered whether anyone else knew any more than I do or has any advice? I don't want to wait months for a rejection when I could be getting on with doing a degree...which I really don't want to do! Thanks
  8. Hi all, Thanks for taking time to read this. My wife is currently a Student Mental Health nurse in the UK. She has 2 years remaining until qualified. We are desperate to move to Aus, but are worried that if my wife simply completed her degree and moves over then her qualifications may become redundant with no post-graduate experience. Can anyone in the nursing sector clear up how essential this experience is and how likely she would get a job without it? We are looking into moving to Queensland. Many Thanks in advance.
  9. So how different is nursing in aus compared to UK? What are the shift patterns like? How many days holiday? Do you get enhancements for working weekends? How many patients do you look after? How many nurses on a shift and nursing assistants? Also has anyone dealt with Healthcare Elite? I found that they've advertised jobs in aus and just wonder what peoples experiences were, Thankyou, Arby
  10. Has anyone recently had their skills assessment back from ANMAC / ANMC? I submitted everything 16 weeks ago and I am still waiting.:mask:

  18. Hi. I am looking for any tips I can find. (Nursing) We are in the process of getting everything in place to register an EOI for a 189 visa in NSW. We (think) we know all the steps, and the way things work appears to be sequential. This is: Complete IELTS with a good score (not available until Late Feb, as it was 'closed' in January) Complete online ANMAC application (with all documents needed) Register with APHRA Register EOI (July 1st - is possible again to submit EOI) We have the roughest of ball park time estimates for this: IELTS results - mid March ANMAC application - mid to late July APHRA - late August EOI - to invitation to apply for a visa? - This seems that this could be between 3-6 months This means we could get a visa before the end of 2014 - but it could be next year, February or March. Ideally we could do with being there sooner, as our eldest daughter starts high school (September 2014 in the UK, or February 2015 in NSW) So - does anyone have any tips which might seem obvious to you, that could streamline this process? Budget limitations restrict us to not using an agent. Thanks in advance! Matthew

  20. Hi everyone, I am looking to move to the Perth area towards the end of the year to live with my cousin. I'm currently an RN in the US on a workers visa (I'm actually British). I'm pretty much looking for any insight on the nursing field in this particular area. I am just starting out my research and don't really know anything at this point as far as job availability or average salaries, so any wisdom or experiences you can share would be invaluable. Many thanks, Jae:cute:

    Nursing in Australia

    Hi guys I'm hoping to go to Australia on a working visa (417) next year, and was wondering where the best places are to do nursing? I currently work in a small hospital so I'm a little wary of working in a big hospital, but obviously I will go where the jobs are at the end of the day Also how long is the process of applying for Australian registration? I am grateful for any information x
  22. Hi, I'm hoping to get some kind of visa to work as an adult nurse in Oz. Ideally I'd like to get a 457 visa, but recently it seems like there's been a slowdown in overseas recruitment for nursing jobs in Oz. Does anyone have any advice regarding potential employers who are offering sponsorship? I've only got 15 months experience, and because I'm over the hill, can't do the whole working holiday thing :-( Also, I wanted to ask for your advice regarding AHPRA and ANMAC :-) So, is it correct that as a UK registered nurse I could apply to AHPRA for registration? I've heard that once you're registered with AHPRA it can put you in a better position to get sponsored jobs. But if I can't get a sponsor, I've heard that I'll need an ANMAC assessment to go down the PR route; is there any disadvantage to applying for ANMAC at a later date? Or would it be best to do the both at the same time? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated! Tubs
  23. I posted on here a while back about doing nurse training once we arrive in Perth next year and when I looked into the courses they did seem rather expensive. When I looked into enrolled nursing at the Tafe in Perth it was quoting $10,000 per year to study. My OH was not impressed ! However I didnt realise that was the fee for International students on a student visa !! :GEEK: We should be coming over on a perm res visa as my OH is a carpenter so I wont be applying as an international student. Accidently I found a website about Central Tafe and their courses ( not available to inter students) and enrolled nursing is only $570 per semester - much cheaper and you can study part time. ( At Mt Lawley) Ideal for me as my kids will be just starting school. Does anyone know anything about these courses ? Have I understood this to correctly. I will be 35 by the time I start studying so enrolled nursing is a shorter course and may be better for me. Only trouble is finding my school certificates....:spinny:
  24. Hi Everybody I hope this is not a spectacularly stupid question, but here goes anyway. I am a registered Learning Disability Nurse in the UK and I have just received my AHPRA eligibility letter through, with the notation of "solely qualified in the area of disability nursing" which is grand! But here comes the stupid question, is this in reference to my qualification or is it a complete restriction of where i can practice. The reason i ask is that i have been working for the last year under a children's hospital caring for children with exceptional health needs, and i had been offered an interview for a children's respiratory ward in Oz, but now i am worried because of the notation i wont be able to work there!! Any help anybody can offer would be mightily appreciated! Or if you know where a "disability nurse" can find work in Sydney, even better!!! Thank you!!!! Paula
  25. Hi I'm a 38 year old single mum of 2 children 6 and 4, just about to do my return to nursing course at the end of September. Completion and pin number should be in place around March 2014. I first qualified in 2002 and then did 2 and a half years on a specialised Spinal injuries Unit, followed by bank nursing on a variety of wards/specialisations up until 2008. My Sister is an Australian citizen and lives in Sydney. After completing my re-registration, apart from the clinical hours on an orthopaedic surgery ward I will have done to gain this, I won't have any recent clinical experience. Will this be a hindrance to my getting a skilled/state nominated visa? Also can anyone recommend areas outside of Sydney in NSW that are good for families with young children, or can offer any advice on what Wollongong is like to live in? And finally does anyone have any idea how long it would take to get registered with Australian Nursing and Midwifery board, and does this have to be done before applying for the visa? Sorry its so long winded, and Thanks in advance!
