Hi everyone! I'm an overseas RN and currently taking up an Aged Care course here in Australia. I want to apply for a part-time work as a Personal Care Assistant at Nursing homes. I just want to ask if do I have to finish first my Certificate III in Aged Care course or is my 1 1/2 years of experience as an overseas nurse will suffice for a carer job? Some people told me that some Nursing homes accept work experience as a substitute for the Certificate....Hope someone can answer my question...Thanks!
