Uk nurse is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Uk nurse wanting to work in vic, Australia, good idea??

Hey!
So I’m 27yo UK nurse married with a 2yo. Have family in Victoria, would love to go out to stay with them and work as a nurse.

Can anyone tell me their own personal experiences of doing this?
I currently work for the NHS, what systems are over there? How difficult would it be? Would it be hard to get a job, is there a need for nurses etc etc

Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Start with a good read of https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/ to see what visas you qualify for and https://www.ahpra.gov.au/ to check that you are eligible for registration in Australia

Dear UK Nurse,
I also have family in Australia in Adelaide and near Brisbane on the Gold Coast but unfortunately no one is a nurse and I have never worked as a nurse in Australia, although my family members living in Australia have a very good quality of life and love working and living there, sorry I couldn't provide you with any specific information about working as a nurse in Australia.

Sincerely Sally
