Default Applying for a Temporary work and PR at the same time

Is this possible? If so, how would I do it?

We're going for our medicals on Tuesday and I'm hoping that my nursing registration comes through this week. I want to use the same medicals and police checks etc and don't know how to go about it.

why do you need both?

it is possible as my husband got a job before we submitted our ITA so took out works visa for a year in Sept 2011 to enable him to start working. We got our PR visa's for him and the rest of the family approved in Feb 2012

I have a job offer for the beginning of September so I believe obtaining a temporary visa is the quickest way, but I want permanent residency and I want use the same medicals.

I did this and for the same reason.

My timeline roughly was:
July 2011 Meds
August Work Visa App, EOI
Sep Work Visa Accepted, ITA received
Oct ITA submitted
Jan Residency offered
Feb Residency Blue stickers granted
