Default Nursing: the best route

Hi all

Just needing advice...

I am a nurse (Degree educated and i'm 33)and I am planning on moving to Melbourne. I am trying to work out the best way of getting there.

I think the options are:

1) apply for APHRA...travel to Australia and collect Pin and return to UK..then ideally obtain sponsorship to get visa...

2) apply independently for visa, obtain it and then go to APHRA and then move over and seek employment? But then need to do Ielts n skills assessment?

I, like many others are trying to keep costs down, and I think option 1 here is a cheaper visa (correct me if I'm wrong) but has the costs of going to collect pin. Is there benefit t getting sponsorship?

If I go option one, via APHRA, would I need to do another skills assessment for visa or would the nurse registration cover this?

Thanks so much for any help. P.s I would be travelling with husband and 5 kids.

Cheers
