Young female, psychiatric nurse needing advice on moving to work in Melbourne

Recommended Posts

Hi guys. My names ashley from glasgow. I'm young, single and seriously thinking about making a move to oz to work. I qualified in 2009 with my degree in psychiatric nursing. I have now nearly 2 years of working with addictions and social work regarding child protection cases behind me. I have no ties to stop me however the thought is naturally daunting. I've lived in perth, western oz for a few months back in 2009 and wasn't impressed. Beautiful place of course however i am a city chic and was told by backpackers whom i met in pubs in perth then i would like Melbourne better as it is more modern and cosmopolitan. Is this the case? Would love to hear from folk. Thanks

Melbourne is a lot more 'european' in feel than Perth is (in my opinion only!) It really all depends on why you weren't that impressed with Perth, because many things will be similar - although many things are different!

 

Good luck :)

Does anyone have a spare instruction manual for a baby girl?

Umm I wonder why you would say that:tongue: and I suppose Mornington is the best place in Melbourne:hug: (well actually I think you are right)


If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.

Nearly but not quite, but that's down to the weather, although in a few months I probably won't be saying that when the next version of Yasi passes over:swoon:
