    Hi Mel

     

    Me again :) I'll just send you one reply this time...

    My understanding is that salaries are worked out on your years/hours of experience.

    I was told about this site, although I haven't got around to looking at it yet. jobs@health.wa.gov.au

    What area of nursing are you in?

    Hi Mel,

     

    sorry for the delay, have been away :D

    I'm a senior nurse is A&E with 7yrs experience. I'm not too familiar with the different levels apart from that they begin with RN level 1 then go 1:2, !:3 etc with the years of experience you have. This you have to prove to obtain your salary scale. I found this web site with all sorts of info on it. Only glanced at it briefly, but it does give pay scales, and other news. See what you think? http://www.anf.org.au/

     

    With regards to my application, I have just received verification from the NMC of Victoria, WA, QLD, & NZ. I updated my practise certificate for NZ so I may apply under the modified skills assessment very soon.

     

    Let me know how you get on :)

    Hi Sunflower,

    I hadnt read this before i replied to other thread..

    Im a bit confused(or thick) but i thought i had to send my skills assessment to the ANMC(Ausralian NMC) which covers whole of Oz. The NMC here have just sent my verification to ANMC but not a specific region is that wrong..Im just putting together all my paperwork to send in for skills assessment of nursing, do i have to send it to a specific area???

    Please help..

    Thanks

    Hi Mel

    My understanding is that you do only have to send your stuff to ANMC for skills assessment, this is for the 136 independant skills visa. for all of Australia. This application is not the same as the registration process in separate states, but they will have all your info for when you do register.

     

    The web site was just one I found when searching for pay scales.

    Hope this helps.

    :)

    Hi Sunflower

     

    I did most of my nursing in Sydney working for an agency so lots of locations both private and public. I enjoyed the experience immensely and found the care to be of a high standard and the support you gain very good. I did a placement in Darwin which was good too if a little frantic!

    I personally wish to work in a public hospital, just because I like trauma care!

     

    I'm looking to work and settle in Northern Rivers NSW but it's all about where the work is now I have a baby.

     

    Hope this helps?

    Anything else I can do please feel free

    Hi Nadine

     

    Looking on the web sites there are a few practice nurse positions available and if you have management qualification I think you will be a level 2 nurse in Australia. you would be best advised to visit the relevant website for the state in which you wish to settle they should have a pay scale for you to look at.

     

    Hope this helps.

     

    All the best with it

        Hi everybody,
              I'm new to the skilled visa forum and would love any and all advice. I am a nurse (in the United States- we don't have a group like this to reach out to  ) and I'm already registered with AHPRA. My partner is Australian and we want to move back to Australia this year. I was going to apply for the partner visa, but due to the cost and processing times I was advised that the skilled migrant visa might be the faster and more efficient route. That being said I have a few questions and would love any and all help.
         
        Can I travel to and from Australia while waiting for approval?
        Do I have to be outside of Australia when approved?
        After being approved was there a certain amount of time that you had to be in Australia by?
        And finally for nursing.... is it the general skilled visa migration visa 476/887?
        Sorry I'm asking all of the beginner questions. I found these answers to be much more readily available on the partner visa portion of the immigration website (and maybe that means they are stricter while verifying partner visas? but I have no idea really). Thank you all so much for your help!

        Quick question, am I right in thinking once IELTS is passed and a suitable score obtained nurses/midwives etc have to then apply to ANMAC and once the skills assessment is approved then and only then can they apply for a skilled visa? once the visa comes through then AHPRA should be applied to due to the new rules?

        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

        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
