I will be graduating from UQ's Master of Nursing Studies (Grad Entry) in July 2011. I didn't realise until this point that very few hospitals have mid-year intake for graduate nurses throughout Australia. Does anyone know if doing a grad program is mandatory or if it is possible to gain employment straight from uni? I was considering taking 6mths off to travel if i can't get a job but i'd also like to start making some real money again! I'm particularly interested in sexual health. Another option might be moving to the US to start a grad program in September. Does anyone know if it is possible to move to the US straight from uni, or do you need a year experience?
