travel nursing to ireland or australia

  1. 0 Are there any companies who offer travel positions in Ireland or Australia? Those are two places I would love to go, but I don't know if it's possible to travel nurse there. I'm new to travel nursing (on my second assignment).
    Thanks
    Lea

    Do a google search for continental nurse travel...i can't remember the address. I looked into Australia as well since they're having such a need and you can get basically an "express" ticket into the country if you're a nurse. Someone said, and I think it was here, that they only accept nurses with bachelor's degrees? If so that rules me out. But that is one of the companies I know that does international placements.

    They will accept RN nurses with ADN provided that you have clinical experience documented, certificates, courses etc. It takes about 6-9 months from applying to actually get your visa and get in. Make sure you get your nursing license asap, that's the first step and takes forever.:chuckle I went in 2005 and it was great. Get ready for less autonomy though...lol.

    who did you go with, or did you get a job directly with a facility there?

    brooke & blue calico,

    i signed up with 2 agencies, choice one meditemp and star health. star health ended up closing, but choice one did net me a job (i couldn't take it because i had agreed to go elsewhere.)

    choice one was really good though [font=frutiger 45 light]www.choiceone.com.au and they offer alot of benefits, housing, airfare, a week to settle in, a guide etc.

    i ended up going with the hospital, after the fiasco with starhealth, i figured it was easier to cut out the middle man. i worked at st. george hospital in kogarah, nsw, very close to sydney. the hospital had a recruitment office that took care of everything, they got you interviews at various hospitals in their system.

    almost everyone asked me first off,....did you get your nsw nursing license yet? that's the longest part, and they can't let you work without it. so if you are thinking of going next year, apply for your license now.

    What exactly do you mean by "clinical experience documented". Sorry, just an ADN student right now, but dream of nursing in NSW. Thanks so much for any help you can offer.

    Well, I had to turn in certificates for all the courses I took during orientation and throughout my nursing career up to that point. Like EKG Certification, Cardiac Nursing course, Preceptor course, Acute Care nursing course, cultural diversity, IV certification etc. Most jobs will do an orientation for new grads and I got issued all kinds of certificates. I was working at a university teaching hospital at that time, and the new grad Mentorship program took 18 months. You had classes for 6 weeks, went to work and then kept taking other classes during the rest of the time. I had had 3.5 years experience when I decided to do this.

    Plus my manager wrote a long letter for me that detailed all my work experience according to our unit's policy. She talked about the type of patients I'd worked with, pumps, ventilators, machines, glucometers...the works. I wrote a prototype letter for her and she kinda built on that. I was working in the ICU stepdown at that time, so there was alot to talk on.

    I have a whole folder on Australia tips if you want some more info...PM me with your email address.

    Hello Spiderella,
    I know this thread is old, but I'm really trying to travel nurse in AUS. I've had my ADN for 3yrs now, and I'm very confused by a lot of the paperwork. It seems vague to me lol! I'm currently working on getting my Victorian license.. And any tips would be a HUGE help!! Thanks so much!
