- 0Jan 2, '06 by nina9404Hi! Happy New Year to all!
I dont know if I am in the right place, but here goes my questions:
1.I would like to ask anyone here if there are hospitals or good agencies in Australia/New Zealand who can accept a new graduate registered nurse from the Philippines without any work experience as of yet? I do however have a passing IELTS exam.
I am interested in working for a period of 6-12 months. From what I understand, I cant use the holiday/working visa since I am over 30 years old. :wink2:
2. Does anyone know how long this usually takes?
3. Are there other options?
4. Will willingness to work in an Area of Need give me a better chance of getting a temporary job?
Thank you in advance!

I'm a RN from the US (3 yrs work experience)... I'm moving to Australia in about 2 months. I have my visa already and my license is pending for NSW. I have an associates degree, will this cause an issue? I have not been able to find information about that... I've read some things online but I'm not sure there are true. Also I need to know what the difference is between public and private hospitals. Pros and cons of working for these 2 types of hospitals. Also I'm looking to work for an agency since I am not ready to settle down to just one hospital... I need to find the right one for me. Please any help would be appreciated. This is all very new to me since I'm moving to Australia and I have never been there. This is a huge change for me and I need all the help I can get!! I'm also looking for accommodations... I will be arriving in Sydney with my husband and need a place to stay... any ideas?!
Thank you in advance,

In general, private hospitals are smaller, have more money, for privately insured patients. Much of it is elective surgery. Public hospitals are large, tertiary/teaching hospitals. They can have public (Medicare) or private patients. They generally have the most emergent services and sickest patients, most government resources. eg. if you worked in ICU, you would want a public hospital for sicker patients. Generally busier in terms of nursing. Pay rates for both public and private are awards, which you could google.
There are many agencies once you have registration who would love to have you.
Place to stay - check www.domain.com.au which has all the properties you could need, including furnished apartments you could stay in until you find out where you will work, where you'll want to live etc. PM me if you'd like more info on this as I live in Sydney.
Very brave of you to move without visiting - but I hope you'll love it! Where in the US are you moving from?
- 0Aug 4, '06 by gwenithQuote from laureWe do not have CRNA's here in Australia. You would not be recognised as such and would not be allowed to practice. Sorry!!i'm currently in anesthesia school and am interested in moving to australia upon graduation...any idea if there's a need for CRNAs or if they'd even recognize my education?
just thought i'd start looking/researching stuff now to see if it's even feasible
