Australian, New Zealand and South East Asian Nursing Resources

  1. i am starting this thread devoted to listing web resources for nurses not only in australia and new zealand but any of our regional areas. anyone is invited to add to the thread with a new resource or site they would like to share.

    the only condition is that the resources added are not for the purposes of advertising as per the terms of service agreement all members agreed to on registering with this site.

    non-profit organisations, government heath websites, universities, medical websites (i.e. college of surgeons), hospital websites (esp. ones such as the liverpool hospitals trauma site) and local support organisations are all welcome to be listed. as long as the listing is not done for recruitment or profitable purposes- i.e. you can list say, woop woop university but you can't run a big advertisement saying come and enrol.

    so here are the start of the sites. first is the australian registration board listed for all overseas nurses wanting to come and visit our beautiful country.

    if you are immigrating to australia you will have to be assessed by the anmc.

    for all information regarding skills assessmements for internationally qualified nurses and midwives please view the international section of the anmac website

    state registration boards - if you are applying to come to australia on a termporary work visa you have to contact the registration board of the state you want to work in first.

    Here are two "Evidence Based Practice" website links. The first is the Joanna Briggs Institute ( I can't believe I haven't included this link yet! lol)

    Joanna Briggs covers nursing and allied health.

    The Cochrane Database is more medically orientated, for access press the log in anonymously button on the webpage.

    Thought I might add some maps of the area so that you have an idea of what the region is like

    To give everyone an idea of the size of Australia the distance from Perth Western Australia to Cairns in Queensland is 2141 miles or 3445 kilometers. I will add maps of the other countries as I find some.
