Please enlighten me....

  1. I am very interested to work in Australia. Can someone please tell me about the BRIDGE Program that is required for a foreign trained nurse to work in Australia?

    Is it true that the Bridge program can only be taken in Sydney? Can it be taken in Victoria instead? My special someone is from Melbourne and he wants me to work there as a nurse.Please enlighten me. Thank you very much.

    Actually, there are many institutes or universities that offer bridging programme for overseas nurses. But first, you have to choose which state you want to work and then contact the nursing board of the state. Say, if you want to work in Victoria, contact Nursing board of Victoria.
