Hi Susan,

Your post sounds really enticing to all us staff nurses.I've worked in child & family health for 8 years now and before that community health.Unfortunately we have only applied for our 175 visa in July 2010 so am pretty sure all posts will be filled by the time we get there.I fear my 10 year old may be shaving by the time we get over,looks like we are in for a looooong wait,Lynne xx

Hi i would also have been interested in the nursing posts you have mentioned, i am a nurse who works on a busy surgical ward specialist thoracic ward and upper gastrointestinal surgery and have been qualified for two years , I am just about to apply for the 176 visa, I have a IELTs score over 7 in all bands, a positive skills assessment, registered with the new nursing council (as i was already registered to queensland nursing council when the changes came in), queensland state sponsership. At last I can now out in for the 176, but how long will it take to get it. 12-18 months ( category 3) think all the posts you have mentioned will be gone by then.

No they won't. Most of the private sector is screaming out to sponsor.

 

What nurses awaiting migration need to ask, is why? :rolleyes:

 

I've met and helped a lot of unhappy nurses, all of them on a 457...........not to say that there aren't those who seem quite happy with sponsorship.

As the previous post....There are so many jobs out here, do not panic. The UK nurses are valued out here as our training is top class in comparison. You'll never be short of work

Moved to Melb on 457 in Sept 2009, 856 granted June 2010 ... :em4000:...

Hi, in the past there has been incentives paid to nurses like flights paid, relocation costs, initial accommodation, etc.

 

How desperate are they in wanting nurses?

I don't know one hospital in the public sector in Brizzy that is sponsoring. They don't need to........they pick up the nurses that are disgruntled with their sponsorships in the private sector.

 

As I've said before, if you want the security (peace of mind) of having a job on arrival, then often the private sector is the only way, but just be wary of the conditions placed on you.

 

My personal advice would be to take a gamble and look for work once here, if you can get here without sponsorship.

Hi Kev

 

You say you've met and helped a lot of nurses who were disgruntled who went out to OZ. We went thru an agency and had some issues with our sponsors after a few weeks of arriving. We didn't leave OZ becasue of that but the agency did not help one bit. We too worked in the private sector. Thinking of going out again. Going to Tassie for a looksee and taking our CVs with us. We are going to avoid Pricate this time and agencies (if we can) and try to get wotk in a public hospital. Problem is we'll need to go on a 457 again. If you don't mind me asking...I'm intrigued by what you do for a living when you say you've helped many nurses out? XXX Cheers jasp

Hi Kev

I do nothing Jasp............just the washing and ironing. :biglaugh:

 

My wife (Bridget) works at The Prince Charles. Some of the nurses that she trained with many years ago emigrated long after us and went into the private sector, as due to their age, they couldn't get here other than by (employer) sposnsorship. Some who could have come on a 175/6 came via (employer) sponsorship as it was quicker.

 

Bridget helped them get alternative employment in the public system, when they were dissapointed with their employer in the private sector. She has also helped some PIO members looking at employer sponsorship obtain interviews and offers of a job in the public sector whilst validating their visa, and in some cases, we have had them stay with us. These have been nurses (PIO members) who, although having a 175/6 felt that they needed the security of a sponsor (employer) before making the move. The security though, can turn out to be a nightmare for some.

 

Their is no shortage of work in the puiblic sector in Qld, and I therefore urge all those nurses looking at employer sponsorship, to question as to whether it is wise to lock one's self into sponsorship when there could be repurcussions of dissatisfaction with one's employer saddled to an inabilty to move or to have to recompense said employer.

Thanks for the reply Kev.

 

What you state in your reply absolutely sums up our experience, only ours was compounded by the fact that we both worked for the same (private) employer. My senior supervisor actually told me that if she'd have met me in the street and learned that I was due to start at her place of work, she'd have told us not to. Not very cheering to know that really! we had a couple of issues back here in the UK which, on top of the hassle we were getting in Adelaide just about put the tin lid on the whole experience. Thankfully we had done 12 months and were told we didn't owe anyone anything financially. But, honestly Kev, it was the longest 12 months in my life!!! and it felt like a prison sentence. Sure, we could have looked around for other sponsors to take over with the 457, but by then our faith and confidence had blown, and we weren't sure if any new organisation would be the same. so we packed up and returned. We had to go on a 457 due to our ages. This time we are trying not to make the same mistakes. yes, we have an agency hounding us, but we've told em to lay off until we've decided what we want to do. There is a place in Tassie which has stated that they want to meet with us when we go over later this month and it is an organisation that does offer 457 sponsorship. Our idea is that if we cut out the middle man then at least there won't be any fees to pay back (unless we stay and get PR - in which case we would owe the organisation, but we would only go for PR if we were sure that the organisation was the right one). Sorry to go on but I just wanted to tell you (something that you already know anyway) that you are spot on with what you are saying. We haven't definately made up our minds to go to Tassie, but we do need to get sponsorship first due to our ages (48 and 49). We have thought of other states (especially QLD as our lad is staying out there at the moment in Bundaberg - he stayed on to travel). We don't mind nailing our colours to a flag but we have to be as sure as we can that the hospital hasn't (like our former place of employ) got a reputation for bullying - not that i stood for it but we did have to swallow a lot of the brown stuff because we were so far away from home and they had us by the short and curlies. Anyway, gone on long enough but suffice to say that I appreciate your experience and your comments.

 

If you do have a list of 'decent' (depends on what I mean as decent I suppose) places to work that would be helpful if we end up looking for an alternative state to apply to. My missus is a theatre scrub nurse and I am mainly a urology nurse - at the moment I work in a Chemotherapy/haematology unit a couple of days a week. When we worked in SA she worked in recovery and Day Surg and I worked in Rehab.

 

Thanks again Kev.

Sorry to hear that it has been such a trial for you Jasp.

 

I can't really help you with other hospitals as Bridget has been at the same one for 15 yrs and has no need to look elsewhere as she has nothing but praise for the place.

 

Unfortunately, to the best of my knowledge, no public sector hospital in Brizzy is recruiting via sponsorship, despite the shortage of nurses, although I have heard of public hospitals further North sponsoring........Bundaberg (bad reputation) and Rockingham.......there may be more. It seems that you may just have to bite the bullet and take as short a sponsorship as possible in order to get the PR that will give you the freedom to pick and choose.

 

One PIO member contacted me rcently saying that they weren't happy with their sponsor but were trying to stick it out as the sponsor had promised them help with PR after only 3 months, so it seems their is some hope somewhere.

 

Tasmania is lovely and if it wasn't for the weather (Bridget suffers for Raynaud's) we'd be there in a shot. Take a look at my website to see what it has to offer via landscape.

 

Good luck.

when applying for 457 visa one does not need IELTS nor skills assessment but need to have secured employment as it is an employer sponsored visa.

Hi Midwife99

I found the same as you and have really struggled to get work in the public sector, so I started to apply to the privates and have received a number of offers. The church and charitable organisations offer more of a salary sacrafice too, which is a big bonus!


APHRA 05/01/12,'in principle'16/02/12, IELTS 18/02/12 R 8, W 9, S 9, L 9,Overall 9.0,ANMC 29/02/12,CO 18/03/12,approved 21/05/12,175 applied 21/5/12, meds 9/6/12, (457 visa approved 30/6/12), pcc submitted 19/7/12, meds finalised 20/7/12,CO 13/8/12

Hi

 

Just to let you know that I accepted an offer from a private company as a nurse on a 457, hope to head out in the next few months. One thing I have noticed though with the private companies is that the pay is not as good as the public sector - I am viewing this move as a foot in the door senario, although I do hope things work out and I can honour my commitment to the company I also realise that once I have my AHPRA reg and am in Oz it is far easier to secure sponsored work if things don't work out (I applied to the public sector and heard nothing also).


APHRA submitted 21.06.12, APHRA acknowledgment 06.07.12 Letter of Eligibility received 07.09.12 . Visa submitted 26.09.12. Meds booked 03.10.12. Meds finalised 11.10.12. VISA Granted 17.10.12!!!! Arrived in Oz 10.01.13
