I have been in Ozzie for nearly 4 years 3 of those in Melbourne. I applied for a permanent post 6 months before I finished my contact in Letterkenny General on the advice of my CNM2. Just 2 days ago I got an email stating that I had progressed to round 3 of assessment via the HSE.ie - Health Service Executive Website - Jobs in the HSE
website which advertises all jobs in the public system.
that is a 4 year wait for someone who scored an A+ on round 1 and 2.
You could look at the private hospitals I suppose. Don't know what the story is there as I am public to the core. Can't stand the entitled attitude of some private pts!
Keep me informed as I would like to go home at some point, but my OCD like tendencies means that I need a job lined up.
