Intensive Care- tips

  1. Hello all!

    I'm a second year RN in South Australia, and was wondering if anyone had any tips on how to get into intensive care work in either SA or Australia.
    I'm finding it pretty hard to find stuff on intensive care in Adelaide, and am accepting the fact that I may have to move, was just wondering if anyone had any advice or tips, or how they got into intensive care in Australia?

    I've got several friends who work in ICU in Melbourne. I'm pretty sure all of them just kept an eye on job vacancies and applied. My understanding from them is that, at least in the ICU of my (large, tertiary) hospital there's a lot of turnover - in part because there are literally hndreds of nurses on the roster. What have you already tried?

    My husband works in an ICU in Adelaide and he's having trouble transferring to another hospital. It was easy approx 5 years ago. They've hired alot of overseas nurses to fill the gaps.
