Australia is not as far progessed into NP territory - there are few NPs as it is such a laborious procedure to gain the title, and there are less than 5 approved NP-preparatory Masters programs. So I guess I am saying having NP would not be hugely advantageous as there are few positions for them in Australia.
The age requirement only comes into play if you need a working holiday visa. There are occupational visas (we have a bad nursing shortage). Check out this helpful info: http://www.alfred.org.au/career_deta..._at_The_Alfred
