Working in Australia from NZ

  1. 0 Hi

    I've just finished the Newgraduate programme in my hospital and currently working
    as a junior staff nurse there. I want to move to Australia (Melbourne or anywhere in Victoria).

    I work in OR but I want to move to PACU or ICU/CCU. My final placement in university was actually in Recovery/PACU but I got a job offer in OR.

    Is it possible to find a job with only 1 year of experience?

    I'm still here in NZ because I'm finishing my post grad certificate. I'm registered in Australia already...

    Hi there the federal government has just retracted 108 million dollars from the Victorian state budget. My ward is closing and a theatre is closing at my hospital and similar reductions at all hospitals across the state. Also many of last years grad programs have not been given posts this year.

    Moving to the Australia/New Zealand forum.

    Best of luck with your search.

    There are plenty of New Zealand nurses working in my hospital (in NSW), including new grads on the new grad program.

    After reading the news this morning, I am glad I work in NSW & have. A grad job lined up.
