Substance Misuse Nurse relocating to Queensland

Recommended Posts

Guest ryansom

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

Where are you looking for jobs? The QLD govt website is a good place to start. Having said that drug and other substance misuse is not as big a problem in Australia as in the UK. As the justice system is a lot harsher too so there might be opportunities in prisons. However it is a big problem amongst Aboriginal communities, particularly alcohol and glue so perhaps look at NT, SA and WA which have big outback communities.

Thankyou for the reply, that gives me something to think about. I have been looking on hospital and health services websites as well as seek. There seems to be a lot of drug and alcohol services, just not jobs available
