Welcome to Everyone
I am now taking on the responsiblity of moderator for the Australian forum and wish to welcome all vistors here.
As you can see from the title of this thread I want to extend the welcome to all nurses in the pacific region.
South Sea Islands
And all others - Welcome!!!
I want to encourage the growth of this forum not only for Australians but for all those within our region. There has been discussion on this forum about making it a wider base and changing the name. If we have a lot of participants from the regional areas I will bring this up with Brian and see what he thinks.
Having talked to many of the members posting on this section of the board I am aware that there are a number of nurses working in China and South east Asia as well as the Phillipines who are looking to come to Australia and work. To help you I will be posting the websites of the various State Nursing Registration Boards as well as any other information you would like to know - like what shifts do we work, although on second thought, that may not be a good idea. I told one Chinese nurse about late/early shifts and I think she is now applying to register in America!!!
I also intend to build up a "glossary" to help translate some of the American terms we are not familiar with i.e
"Going to the MAR = checking out the drug chart"
Please feel free to PM me at any time
