I'm second year nursing student and will be graduating end of this year. Mid year, I'll be applying for graduate program but I'm not sure which one is better for me, public or private hospital? What is the difference between private and public and how do i know which graduate program is the best for me. I understand that it is very competitive and there's no guarantee that I'll get one. Need your all professional advise. Many thanks.

You will be pushing uphill to get a grad position, apply, apply to all hospitals, now is not the time to worry about what is better than another, just to get the first RN job.
A certain big private hospital corporation, overseas owned, with hospitals in every state, offers grad years to overseas, new grads, so you can see there is a massive amount of applications. Though how they qualify for visa's when 1/3 of Australian new grads do not get work beats me.
