Interesting Book for Nurses thinking of coming to Australia

Recommended Posts

Guest SSC

I've recently come across a book written by a British nurse who emigrated to Australia. It explains the differences in nursing between Australia and the UK and there is a free introductory download.

 

I think that is a long overdue publication which is written from an independent perspective.

 

It looks like it will answer lots of questions people have about nursing in Australia and according to the website it will be due out in May.

You can find information on the book on this website Nursing Australia: An eBook Guide to Working and Living as a Nurse in Australia

It's good because it's not written from a migration agent or recruitment perspective - it's been written from a nurse's point of view.

 

The author - Emma Bates a Registered Nurse in NSW - has packed the book with lots of information she wish she'd known when she migrated to Australia and also the differences on nursing between the two countries.

 

I think it's a well overdue publication. I believe it's coming out at the end of May.

I bought this publication and it is well worth the money, very informative and there is an invaluable section on medications and the different names used in Australia. There is also a sister publication about the Australian Health System which is excellent too. Would highly recommend them both.
