Hope you can cope with 3 day orientations and hope you have worked in the English system so that you may have some idea on the differences in drug names and how things are ordered differently than the US system. That's just a small area of the care difference.
RNs do everything here, no Iv therapist no fancy medication system and we must be culturally sensitive,that means thinking about what you say and do to others, through what we know of their lived experience.
The nurses you have answered are under much stress and worry for their jobs and answered your post as they see it at this time here in Australia....lived experience.
Their posts did not solicit rude comments about their lived experience and observations.
btw what bachelorette degree do you have?
and that is all the Gold Coast is, beaches, shopping centres, sunshine, and a lot of rain and warm temperatures and lots of people and tourists +++++, and lots of immigrants trying to find work, not indicative of the real, Australia at all, I would go elswhere.
