Jan 21, '03Bloke mate - good to see you on the baord- thinsk we do need that wine and chees night/greet and meet thread - might stop pracrstinating and do it now
Jan 21, '03Stu I wanted to work at Baringa or the base hospital. Tried to get a sponser but I guess they are not that desperate for nurses. I know there is a shortage there as well..
Jan 21, '03G'day mates, nice to see a few posts already.
Tookie, hope all is ok in your area. My cousin lives in Kambah & fortunately they escaped unscathed. Let's all collectively send out thoughts to the universe for rain! LOTS & LOTS of it!!
WELCOME to our new young 'un who has been accepted to begin nursing at uni. WELL DONE! You are amongst friends (mates!) here. As tookie said, keep in touch & us "Oldies" will help, guide, advise in any way we can. OK OK, not all of you is as OLD as me!! But I'm still drop dead gorgeous & barely a crinkle! LOL (As opposed to WRINKLE!)
Before we accept just "anyone" as honourary AUSSIES, I think we need to have an initiation of some sort. Come on my fellow cobbers, any ideas?? :-) :roll
Hope you all have a happy AUSTRALIA DAY on the 26th & I'll raise my glass to our collective good health! CHEERS!
Jan 21, '03Oh come on now - if you want to be an HA you have to do a little research renerian - (or you could cheat & I could tell you!!)
26 Jan is the anniversary of the day the First Fleet landed at what is now Sydney, & Australia was proclaimed as belonging to the British (don't even get me started on the concept of "terra nullis"!!) Anyway, basically now it is an excuse for a barbie, a few xxxx's & a get together with friends. And this year is even better cos it is on a Sunday (but I have to work - buggar!!)
Jan 22, '03G'day to all,
Glad to join in any Aussie issues forums,especially aged care or psych. I'm up here on the far north coast of NSW about 15 minutes from Byron Bay. It doesn't get any better than this.
Jan 22, '03ORRIGHT BRUCE...
You don't have to brag! Lucky bugger. All that magnificent surf 'n' sea!
Welcome to the AUSSIE section of allnurses. What a brilliant & kind thing Brian has created for us folks down here, down under! Thanks again Brian!...
Jan 22, '03Hi Renerian,
Have you tried going to the NSW Health web site and looked up nursing vacancies?..... the URL is http://www1.health.nsw.gov.au/healthjobs/index.html
Look up the Mid North Coast and nursing... I think there are are some vacancies up Coffs way..... use some of the contact details to see if there is a sponsor...... good luck.
Jan 22, '03Yeah, go away Bruce -- the rest of us don't want to associate with you!! (Really just green with envy about the fact that some people actually get paid to live in such magnificent country!!)
Jan 22, '03Bruce have a SIL who lives just out of Byron Bay at Suffolk park - we spent 5 days up there for new year in 99/2000 - Beautiful country - went home via the Dubbo Zoo.
Welcome Bruce nice to meet you
Jan 22, '03Meant to ask you bruce - are you working in Aged care / Dementia or a pyscho geriatric unit?
just being nosey
Jan 23, '03HI Tookie
I worked in psychogeriatrics at the PA hospital in Brisbane before moving to the coast in '99.
Then I started in a dementia specific unit at a nursing home in Kingscliff, about 40 kms. from here. I just love working with the oldies, quite a change from acute psych, where I was previously.
I don't think you are nosey, can't tell anyway from the photo.
Its great to get to chat with my Aussie colleagues, as well as the wanna-be's.
