I am planning on going back to school to become a nurse. I am in the preliminary stages (taking prerequisites here in the United States.) My husband is Australian, and we went through the pain in the butt process of getting him his citizenship here. I had spent a great deal of time there, but I came back to finish my schooling, and he followed shortly after.
It will still be 2+ years in the future, but I am wondering if it is possible, and if it is, easy, to become a nurse in Australia if you've got your license in the United States. His family lives in Ballarat (an hour or so out of Melbourne) so if it varies by state, I suppose I'm inquiring about Victoria, in general. I've researched it a bit and was unable to find much corroborating information, so if anyone knows or has any experience, I would greatly appreciate it!
