US nurse heading back for another assignment in Australia. Anyone else interested?

  1. Hi. I know there's some frequency of American travel nurse that check for this kinda info. Well, I'm an American RN who's been working in Australia for the past year. I'll be taking a big RTW trip starring during norther hemisphere spring. After that, heading back to Oz to start up some more work.

    So, there seems to be plenty of good work available here now. I thought it might be fun if another chill US nurse come along this time for the adventure. Gypsy nurses sticking together =). It b er be perfect timing.

    Leave US late summer, then go straight into another spring and summer. Plenty of time to get docos approved. Bit of a process but no much problem. I could totally give some pointers to.

    Anyone keen on this.

    Hi, I'm also a US RN with 3 years SICU experience. I was wondering how you were able to get the process of getting registered in Oz started? I am 31 so I cannot apply for the holiday working visa. I did RTW trips that would olny last 6 months max til I have to go back to the States to work again. So I am super interested in working in Oz as a nurse and not have to keep coming back to the US to earn money to sustain my gypsy life. LOL

    Thanks in advance!

    You have to contact the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Board (Australian Health Practitioner Registration Agency). They have application forms online.

    "You can lodge your application for registration, and supporting documentation, by post or in person at an Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) office in the state or territory in which you plan to live and work.
    All international applications are subject to the same national assessment standards regardless of where the application is lodged.
    We do not accept applications by email because we need your original signature (not a scanned signature, for example) on the application documents.
    Applying for registration does not guarantee that you meet the standards for registration. Granting registration is a decision of the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA)."
