So i’m honestly just lost. I am an American nursing student 3/4 done with my 4 year RN degree and i’m looking to travel and work in Australia for the summer. I know there are jobs out there for student nurses in Australia, mainly focusing on aged care, that are equivalent to AIN jobs. As an American I am assuming I can just apply to various student nurse job postings without gaining an AIN certificate, is that correct? The only requirements I can find needed for student nurses are clinical references and evaluations, is that the same if i’m in an American nursing school? Any information would be greatly appreciated!!!! Thanks in advance.

First thing you will need to do is figure out your visa situation, as unless you have dual-citizenship or Australian residency status you won't be able to work with out a visa.

I'd recommend poking around the Australian Customs & Immigration website a bit to look at visa options for travel and work. https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/

I would not assume the ability to work in healthcare in any capacity with a partial U.S. degree, as the education systems are different, as are the healthcare systems, however you can likely find some form of non-healthcare employment.
